Los Angeles - Top-ranked Novak Djokovic beat Mardy Fish in the American's return to the court after a six-month absence caused by a heart condition in the inaugural Los Angeles Tennis Challenge exhibition.

The event, put together by Fish and retired player Justin Gimelstob, survived a broken net and a lights failure during a doubles match in which Djokovic and childhood idol Pete Sampras lost to the top-ranked team of Bob and Mike Bryan at the University of California, Los Angeles Pauley Pavilion on Monday.
