Serbian star Novak Djokovic on Thursday continued to dominate Frenchman Gael Monfils, defeating him for the 12th time in his career, in the second round of the Australian Open.

With a forecast high of 39 Celsius (102 Fahrenheit), Sharapova appeared to be in a hurry to get off the Rod Laver Arena court, winning the first set in 23 minutes.

Djokovic, showing the effects of the struggle, fended off Monfils' renewed late effort and the Serb needed his fourth match point to claim victory.

Djokovic said that his match was right at the limit.
