Novak Djokovic will team up with his brother Marko Djokovic to play the Qatar ExxonMobil Open men’s doubles.
The Djokovics haven’t played together since 2013. The last time Novak and Marko teamed up they were beaten by Nikolay Davydenko and Dick Norman in the Dubai first round.
The Djokovic brothers also teamed up in Bangkok in 2008, in Umag a year later and Dubai in 2011. They ended up losing in the first round on all three occasions.
It remains to be seen will it be sixth time lucky for the Djokovic brothers when they meet Zayid and Ilkel in Doha.
Zayid and Ilkel are set to debut as a team in Doha as they have no previous appearances as a pair.
The Djokovics could meet 2018 Australian Open champions Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic in the Doha quarter-final. Meanwhile, two tennis stars have teamed up to play the Doha doubles event.
Three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka and 2018 Paris Masters champion Karen Khachanov will be meeting Belgium’s David Goffin and Pierre-Hugues Herbert in the first round.
