Roger Federer will play world number two Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals of the Dubai Tennis Championships after beating Lukas Rosol in straight sets.
Fourth seed Federer beat Rosol of the Czech Republic 6-2 6-2 and will face Djokovic on Friday.
The Serb advanced to the last four after Russia’s Mikhail Youzhny withdrew through illness.
Returning to the tour more than five weeks since the loss of his Australian Open title, Djokovic goes into the meeting with Switzerland’s Federer with a little more than two hours court time from his two matches in Dubai.
