ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Novak Djokovic overcame Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to enter the final of the Mubadala Championship for the third time in three years on Friday, but he won't be facing top-ranked Rafael Nadal.

Djokovic beat Tsonga 7-6 (5), 6-3 in 74 minutes to set up a repeat of last year's final against David Ferrer, who knocked out Spanish compatriot Nadal 6-4, 6-4 with breaks in the last game of each set, in 90 minutes of quality tennis.

Djokovic was watched by his new part-time coach Boris Becker at the exhibition event.

Earlier, Wimbledon champion Andy Murray won his first match following a three-month layoff for a back injury when he beat Stanislas Wawrinka 6-3, 6-4 in the playoff for fifth.
