Top seeds Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams barely moved out of second gear while Victoria Azarenka underlined her Australian Open pedigree as players experienced the hottest conditions of the championship so far Thursday.Four-time champion Djokovic only needed to boost his game after an hour of his 6-0 6-1 6-4 victory over Andrey Kuznetsov, while Williams had to be on her mettle a little sooner following some early resistance from former world No. 2 Vera Zvonareva.Once the 18-time grand slam singles champion got up to speed, however, she cruised away from the Russian with a 7-5 6-0 victory during the day session.Williams's victory came about 90 minutes after older sister Venus hammered American compatriot Lauren Davis 6-2 6-3, while sixth seed Radwanska also made short work of Sweden's Johanna Larsson in a 6-0 6-1 victory that took just 44 minutes.
