    NEW YORK — 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 US 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.
