Novak Djokovic ensured there wouldn't be consecutive upset losses at Rod Laver Arena on Sunday when he beat Fabio Fognini 6-3, 6-0, 6-2 in a fourth-round match at the Australian Open.

The Australian Open is in the books, and what a fortnight it was. Check out some shots of the lighter side of the event.

Immediately following fellow Serbian Ana Ivanovic's win over top-seeded and five-time champion Serena Williams, Djokovic raced to a 4-1 lead in the first set in just 19 minutes and won in 1 hour, 33 minutes to advance to the quarterfinals of his 19th consecutive Grand Slam.

It was also Djokovic's 28th consecutive win dating back to his loss to Rafael Nadal in last September's U.S. Open final.

Djokovic, who has captured six Grand Slam singles titles, next plays the winner of the match between Stanislas Wawrinka and Tommy Robredo later Sunday.
