The Serb had won his first round match when Irish qualifier Conor Niland retired trailing 6-0 5-1 over worries he would get sick on court from a bad case of food poisoning.
Australian Open and Wimbledon champion Djokovic spent a bit more time on Arthur Ashe Stadium court against Berlocq, with the greatest suspense being whether the soft-hitting Argentine would be able to win a game from the top seed.
Berlocq broke through in the 15th game and won a standing ovation from the centre court crowd.
