The world number 24 came from a set down to win 3-6 7-6 (8) 6-4 to claim only his second victory over Djokovic and a fourth triumph over a top-five opponent.
It was only the second time the 30-year-old has beaten Djokovic, across nine matches, and he was clearly delighted with the victory.
Djokovic added: "I knew his qualities and especially in the slower conditions, so I did expect that it was going to be a match with a lot of rallies and very physical and that has proven to be the case". That's why Novak is No. 1 in the world. I'm happy with the way I'm playing. "That's it", a clearly frustrated Djokovic said in his post-match press conference.

Unlike many Spanish players who tend to favour clay, Bautista Agut is more suited to hard courts like Doha because he is a counter attacking player who plays lower, flatter shots, and does not rely so much on bounce or spin.
A wide forehand midway through the seventh game gave Djokovic an opening and he duly broke through to love as Bautista Agut found the net with a weak backhand.
