Three-time defending champion Novak Djokovic and David Ferrer battled through intense heat to reach the third round of the Australian Open Wednesday.Second seed Djokovic stepped it up from his mixed first-round performance to ease past Argentina's Leonardo Mayer 6-0, 6-4, 6-4 for his 23rd straight win at the Open.Third seed Ferrer, who lost in last year's semifinal to Djokovic, needed just over three hours to overcome Frenchman Adrian Mannarino, winning 7-6 (7/2), 5-7, 6-0, 6-3 on Hisense Arena.Djokovic, unconquered at Melbourne Park since 2010, broke Mayer's service five times and did not face a break point on his own serve in his 1 hour 47 minutes on court.It was an improved performance by the Serb after his sloppy first-round effort against Slovakia's Lukas Lacko Monday.He also hit 30 winners to just 11 unforced errors while Mayer made 39 errors.
