Novak Djokovic cruised to his 89th tour title as he beat Marin Cilic in straight sets to win the Tel Aviv Watergen Open. The 35-year-old, playing in his first singles tournament since winning Wimbledon in July, eased past second seed Cilic 6-3 6-4 to take his third tour-level crown of the year. Top seed Djokovic went through the tournament without surrendering a single set to become the first man to win on hard, clay and grass courts this season. “That’s why I came to Israel, to try to win the title. The world number seven broke swiftly in the second too and pushed home the advantage to win the match in an hour and 35 minutes.
