Djokovic steely over stoush at US Open practice


//

Novak Djokovic implied he got fired up by an exchange of words with someone standing outside the practice court where the U.S. Open's defending champion warmed up before his third-round victory.

Asked what happened with the man, who was on the other side of a wall at the back of the court, Djokovic initially replied, "Just had a little chat."

Told he had been heard saying he would find the person, Djokovic smiled wryly and said: "To have a drink. I liked the guy. I'm going to buy him a drink."

Later in his news conference, Djokovic said he didn't want to reveal what the fan said but added: "I think he did me a favor. Even maybe (if) he didn't want to do me a favor, he did me a favor. Big favor."

Defending champion Novak Djokovic's left shoulder appeared to be just fine as he put together a straightforward, straight-set victory over Denis Kudla to reach the U.S. Open's fourth round for the 12th appearance in a row.

The top-seeded Djokovic won 6-3, 6-4, 6-2 under the lights in Arthur Ashe Stadium.

He had complained about pain in his shoulder and repeatedly was visited by a trainer during his previous match.

Next will be a match Sunday against three-time major champion Stan Wawrinka.

Djokovic has won 36 of his past 37 Grand Slam matches.
