Abu Dhabi - World No 1 Novak Djokovic took just 57 minutes to beat Stan Wawrinka 6-1, 6-2 in Abu Dhabi on Friday.

The Serb will meet Scotland's Andy Murray in the Mubadala World Tennis Championship final on Saturday.

While Murray reported that his semi-final against world No 3 Raphael Nadal had been a tough match, despite winning 6-2, 6-0, Djokovic did not appear stretched by Wawrinka.

In January 2014 the Swiss put Djokovic out of the Australian Open at the start of the best year of his career, but he struggled to get started against Djokovic who dominated the match in Abu Dhabi.

The Serb said afterwards he was happy to be playing well after a month away from competition and looked forward to playing Murray in the final.

Results on the second day of the Mubadala World Tennis Championship exhibition tournament on Friday:


Andy Murray (GBR) bt Rafael Nadal (ESP) 6-2, 6-0

Novak Djokovic (SRB) bt Stanislas Wawrinka (SUI) 6-1 6-2
