Result: Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer coast through at Australian Open

Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer ease through their opening matches at the Australian Open.

Novak Djokovic has started the defence of his Australian Open title with a comfortable win over Chung Hyeon.

The world number one broke serve on five occasions on his way to a 6-3 6-2 6-4 victory over the South Korean, who is ranked at 52nd in the ATP standings.

Roger Federer also enjoyed a routine opener in Melbourne as he easily got the better of Nikoloz Basilashvili.

The four-time champion did not have to get out of second gear as he dismantled his opponent in just 72 minutes, eventually prevailing by a 6-2 6-1 6-2 scoreline.

In the last 64, Djokovic will play France's Quentin Halys, while Federer faces a potentially tricky match with Alexandr Dolgopolov.
