Federer and Djokovic hold court on Open day 6

The defending champion's night match was a relative breeze as he dispatched Jan-Lennard Struff in straight sets 6-4, 6-4, 7-6 (4) in a match that ended shortly before midnight - when the temperature was 20 degrees Fahrenheit cooler.

The former World No 1, who missed last year's tournament because of her ban for the use of a banned substance, takes on the Latvian 14th seed in the first match on the main showcourt so should escape the worst of the heat.

The only time Federer looked remotely stumped came during a post-match interview conducted by American comedian Will Ferrell who told him he had played like a "silky gazelle".

"I'm hoping for it to go well again, I'm not sure it can go this well because a year ago was so good". "It's their call. I'm happy I didn't have to go from night to day, I'm happy to play in the same rhythm".

Keys missed last year's Australian Open after undergoing surgery to fix her injured left wrist. He was never under pressure in his first match of the Open and carrying form from the Hopman Cup, it'd be a suprirse if the German can get this match to last two hours.

But Foles is definitely not Brees, so look for more blitzes to be called by Zimmer and defensive coordinator George Edwards. Fournette ran for 109 yards and three touchdowns against the Steelers despite reinjuring his right ankle in the first half.

Djokovic urged tennis organizers to be more flexible about the rules for drink breaks, time between points and suspension of play when the conditions were bordering on risky.

"I run around the backhand presently", he said. Sometimes, of course, you are right.

Kvitova, the 27th-seed player this year, was a semi-finalist in Australia in 2012 and also made the quarter-finals in 2011.

Djokovic, untroubled by scorching conditions at Melbourne Park, beat Frenchman Gael Monfils 4-6 6-3 6-1 6-3 in the second round, though he took aim at organisers for allowing play to continue in such heat. Very unusual, considering I have been on tour many years and hadn't played her.

"I wouldn't have minded playing during the day - I hope I survive under those conditions too", he said.

World number one Simona Halep booked her place in round two, avoiding the first round exit that befell her in the past two years.

Maria Sharapova is back in Melbourne.

Keys is the only one of the four American women who reached the semifinals at the U.S. Open last September still in contention in Melbourne - Stephens, Venus Williams and CoCo Vandeweghe were all eliminated in the first round.

She is now on a 10-match win streak after a ideal early season.

"Don't they get eaten in the end?", Federer ventured before being asked whether he was a witch or a vampire and whether his age-defying performances were down to a diet of wombat meat.
