Novak Djokovic took just 51 minutes to win his first game of 2016, easily beating Dustin Brown 6-2, 6-2 in the opening game of the Qatar Open Monday.The world number 118 then had two points to claim a third successive game but double-faulted twice, allowing Djokovic to claim the first set in just 25 minutes.The second set followed a similar pattern as Djokovic, 28, swatted aside any potential resistance from Brown – who famously beat Rafael Nadal in the second round at Wimbledon last year – by breaking serve in the fourth game to take a 3-1 lead. Djokovic, making his second appearance in Qatar, was watched on by coach Boris Becker, the first winner of the Qatar Open back in 1993 .
