Defending champion Novak Djokovic and third seed David Ferrer were first into the men's quarter-finals with contrasting victories at the Australian Open on Sunday.Djokovic coasted to a 6-3, 6-0, 6-2 victory over the 15th-seeded Fognini in one hour 33 minutes to claim his 19th straight Grand Slam quarter-final.In a hollow contest, Djokovic broke Fognini's service six times from 22 break point opportunities and hit 33 winners past the at times lackadaisical Italian.It will be Djokovic's seventh straight quarter-final appearance at the Australian Open and extends his unbeaten run to 25 matches at Melbourne Park.It is the terrier-like Spaniard's fourth consecutive quarter-final at the Australian Open and fifth overall as he bids to better his losing semi-final appearance against Djokovic last year.
