    Dubai - Djokovic opens bid against Troicki World No. 1 Novak Djokovic makes his return to competition with a first-round match against compatriot Viktor Troicki. The players are slated to contest their 14th career meeting Tuesday evening.

    Novak Djokovic holds a comprehensive 12-1 series advantage over world No. 44 Viktor Troicki. The two are set to meet for the first time since Wimbledon 2012.

    Djokovic heads into the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships with an 8-0 season record, aided by a Grand Slam winning run at the Australian Open. The 25-year-old will be making his seventh appearance at the tournament, where he sealed title efforts from 2009-2011.

    "It’s one of the toughest tournaments on the ATP World Tour, because of the fields over the past 10 years," said the world No. 1. "It is very well known for top players coming here and playing their best. I won it three times in a row. I feel great here and have a lot of support from Serbians."

    "The fact that I haven’t played an official match since Davis Cup means that I am fresh mentally and ready for a strong week."

    Troicki looks to regroup after suffering a first-round defeat to France's Richard Gasquet in Rotterdam. The 27-year-old is seeking his first victory in Dubai since 2010.

    Prediction: Djokovic in straight sets.
