Just less than a fortnight after beating Rafael Nadal to retain his ATP World Tour Finals crown, Novak Djokovic once again defeated the Spaniard, this time in an exhibition in Chile.

The pair have played each other six times during the 2013 season, and with three wins apiece the top two players in the world are in South America to mark the retirements of Nicolas Massu and David Nalbandian.

In Santiago, Chile, Massu began the series of games with a victory over Nalbandian, but all eyes were on the clash between world No. 1 Nadal and Djokovic.

Djokovic defeated Nadal in straight sets to triumph at the World Tour Finals at London's O2 Arena, and the Serb emerged a 7-6(3) 6-4 victor in their opening exhibition encounter. They are set to face one another again in Buenos Aires in Argentina on Sunday.
