Melbourne, Australia - Novak Djokovic and David Ferrer cruised to victories Sunday in the fourth round of the men's draw at the Australian Open.

The second-seeded Djokovic, looking to become the first player to win four straight Aussie Open crowns, steamrolled Italy's Fabio Fognini, the No. 15 seed, in straight sets, 6-3, 6-0, 6-2, at Rod Laver Arena. Djokovic fired off seven aces and converted on six break points in the match, which lasted just over 90 minutes.

The dominant Serbian has won all four matches in straight sets and moved to 7-0 all-time against Fognini.

The third-seeded Ferrer, meanwhile, defeated Germany's Florian Mayer, 6-7 (5-7), 7-5, 6-2, 6-1. After dropping the first set in the tiebreaker, Ferrer bounced back to win eight of 15 possible break points. Ferrer committed 43 unforced errors, but was aided by Mayer, who had 49 unforced mistakes.

Also on Sunday, seventh-seed Tomas Berdych is currently battling 19th-seed Kevin Anderson. Eighth-seed Stanislas Wawrinka will take on 17th-seeded Tommy Robredo of Spain.
