Melbourne, Australia (SportsNetwork.com) - Three-time reigning and four-time overall champion Novak Djokovic was a predictable third-round winner Friday at the dangerously hot Australian Open. A brutal heat wave continued to produce stifling weather, as the temperature climbed as high as 111 degrees on Day 5 at Melbourne Park. The second-seeded former world No. 1 Djokovic pushed his Aussie Open winning streak to 24 matches with a 6-3, 6-3, 7-5 handling of Uzbekistans Denis Istomin in just under two hours at Rod Laver Arena. Djokovic topped British star Andy Murray in last years finale in Oz and hasnt lost here since 2010, when Jo-Wilfried Tsonga got him in the quarterfinals. Up next for the six-time major champion will be gritty Italian Fabio Fognini. Meanwhile, last years French Open runner-up David Ferrer and former Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych were also among Fridays winners. Ferrer advanced by beating 29th-seeded Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-2, 7-6 (7-5), 6-2 at Laver. Chardy struggled with an inconsistent service game. He fired eight aces, but committed the same number of double faults and committed 51 unforced errors en route to defeat. The third-seeded Ferrer has reached at least the round of 16 at 15 straight Grand Slam tournaments, a run that began at Wimbledon in 2010. The steady Spaniard matched his best Australian Open performance last year by reaching the semifinals before losing to the great Djokovic. Awaiting Ferrer in the fourth round is German Florian Mayer, who dismissed injured 20th-seeded Jerzy Janowicz of Poland in straight sets, 7-5, 6-2, 6-2. Janowicz later revealed hes been managing an injury, as doctors in Poland advised him not to compete at this tournament due to a broken bone in his foot, which was diagnosed during the this past offseason. "Before I
Poland, [it] was still a little bit broken; was not 100 percent healthy," he said after Fridays loss. "There was still quite a bit inflammation. So all the time Im taking inflammation pills, and we will see how its going to be. Anyway its better than it was before definitely." The seventh-seeded Berdych, meanwhile, served up 13 aces in a 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 victory over qualifier Damir Dzumhur, who was the first man from Bosnia and Herzegovina to play in a Grand Slam event. The 6-foot-5 Berdych reached the quarterfinals in Melbourne last year, losing to Djokovic. The Czechs next opponent will be 19th-seeded taller South African Kevin Anderson. The 6-foot-8 Anderson overcame a sluggish start and saved a match point before beating Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin 3-6, 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7-5), 7-5. A top-10 upset came when 17th-seeded former top-10 star Tommy Robredo of Spain took out ninth-seeded Frenchman Richard Gasquet 2-6, 7-5, 6-4, 7-6 (8-6) in 3 hours, 19 minutes. The resurgent Robredo popped 16 aces en route to the upset. Robredos fourth-round opponent will be eighth-seeded Swiss Stan Wawrinka, who advanced via walkover when 28th-seeded Canadian Vasek Pospisil pulled out of the draw on Thursday. Also on Friday, a 15th-seeded Fognini dismissed American Sam Querrey 7-5, 6-4, 6-4. The third round will conclude on Saturday, including matches for former champion Rafael Nadal, the three-time Aussie runner-up Murray, four-time titlist Roger Federer, and the 2008 runner-up Tsonga. The world No. 1 Nadal, who is the reigning U.S. and French Open champion, titled in Melbourne in 2009 and was the Aussie runner-up in 2012, will battle 25th-seeded Frenchman Gael Monfils in a rematch of a final two weeks ago in Doha, which was captured by the high-flying Spaniard. The fourth-seeded reigning Wimbledon champ Murray will take on 26th-seeded Spanish left-hander Feliciano Lopez, while the sixth-seeded former No. 1 and 17-time Grand Slam king Federer will face Russian Teymuraz Gabashvili, and a 10th-seeded Tsonga will be opposed by 18th-seeded fellow Frenchman Gilles Simon. In some other third-round play on Day 6, 11th-seeded Canadian slugger Milos Raonic will tangle with rising 22nd-seeded Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov and 16th- seeded Japanese Kei Nishikori will lock horns with American Donald Young.

TAMPA, Fla. -- New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has no concerns about the health of shortstop Derek Jeter, who was limited to 17 games last season due to leg injuries. Jeter is scheduled to play Thursday against Pittsburgh in his first spring training game of his final season. Cashman said Wednesday he is "more curious as to like how the weather report is for tomorrow than what hes going to look like." "What happened last year was unfortunate and unexpected," Cashman said. "Ive been conditioned not to worry about Derek Jeter, and I havent deviated from that." Jeter, who turns 40 in June, broke his left ankle in the 2012 AL championship series, then broke it again last spring during his rehabilitation. "Im looking forward to being out there," Jeter said. "I feel good now, so last year doesnt matter. Since Ive been here this year, everything has been like a normal spring. You cant really compare last year and this year. Two entirely different years. Last year I felt as though I was rehabbing, this year Im good to go.&quoot; Yankees manager Joe Girardi is handling Jeters spring training in a normal fashion.dddddddddddd "Everything hes done has been good," Girardi said. "So, last year where we had some concerns, the way he was running, the way he was moving, we havent had any of that." Jeter got to meet 2013 Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston before the Yankees played Florida State on Tuesday. Winston is a closer and outfielder for the Seminoles. "Hes pretty remarkable," Jeter said. "I think its cool that hes playing two sports. You dont see that too often now."
