Imperious Novak Djokovic canters into quarter-finals
Melbourne: Four-time champion Novak Djokovic reached his seventh successive Australian Open quarter-final with a routine 6-3 6-0 6-2 victory over 15th-seed Fabio Fognini on Sunday.

The world number two needed just 92 minutes to dismantle the Italian, who was having trouble with his serve, struggled to string successive points together and appeared to not be playing to his full ability in the third set.

Djokovic`s dominance on return earned him an impressive 22 break opportunities but the Serb was even more accomplished on his own serve, losing just 10 points throughout the entire match as he won a fourth straight contest without dropping a set.

Djokovic`s only concern appeared to be with his footing as he slipped over early in the first set, though it did not affect his path to a last-eight encounter against either eighth-seeded Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka or Spain`s 17th-seed Tommy Robredo.
