Novak Djokovic led a trail of the top men's seeds into the second round at the Australian Open Tuesday as Stan Wawrinka made a successful return to his life-changing court.Djokovic, who crashed out to eventual winner Wawrinka in the quarterfinals of last year's event, has been dogged by illness in the lead-up to the year's first major tournament.Wawrinka said he was not getting too far ahead of himself with a potential quarterfinal against Japanese star Kei Nishikori and beyond that a semifinal with Djokovic.Nishikori, who lost to Marin Cilic in last year's U.S. Open final, won a two-hour seven-minute dogfight with the former world No. 9 before prevailing, 6-4, 7-6 (7/1), 6-2 on Margaret Court Arena.
