Novak Djokovic chalked up a straight-sets win over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to reach the Australian Open last 32

Novak Djokovic remains on course for a seventh Australian Open title after a second round victory over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, the man he beat to claim his first.

In 2008, Djokovic prevailed over the Frenchman to pick up a second Grand Slam title but first in Melbourne and more than a decade on he proved too strong once again – winning 6-3 7-5 6-4.

The Serb, back up to world No 1 and chasing a 15th Grand Slam singles title, was not at his best but with Tsonga still feeling his way back to form and fitness, Djokovic had enough to come through on an arduous day that didn’t finish until 12.30am.
