Melbourne, Jan.20 (ANI): Defending Champion Novak Djokovic continued his rich vein of form as he defeated wildcard entry Quentin Halys to ease through the third round of the Australian Open at the Melbourne Park on Wednesday.

The world number one, who was facing a teenager for the second match in a row, defeated the world 187 ranked player 6-1, 6-2, 7-6(3) in the second round contest.

Djokovic accelerated through the first two sets, illustrating the type of ruthless tennis that scooped three majors in 2015.

Earlier on Monday, he kicked off his Australian Open campaign with a straight-set win over Chung Hyeon of South Korea to advance to the second round of the tournament.

The defending champion had outclassed the South Korean teenager 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 in a thrilling opening round that lasted for about two hours at Rod Laver Arena. (ANI)
