Career

Berlocq started playing tennis at the age of four and has had his success on the ATP Futures and Challenger circuits. In 2004 he made six consecutive finals in the Futures events, winning three of them, two finals each in Argentina, France and Slovenia. He also made his first Challenger final in Manta, Ecuador losing to Giovanni Lapentti and then won another Futures title in Argentina.

At the end of 2005 Berlocq finished inside the top 100 for the first time on the back of strong form on the Challenger circuit where he went 44–20 in singles and won two Challenger titles in Turin defeating Alessio di Mauro and in Cordenons defeating Jérôme Haehnel. Berlocq also qualified for his first ATP main event in Stuttgart losing to Răzvan Sabău and also played doubles in Bucharest with Mariano Puerta.

Berlocq struggled to adapt his level from the Futures and Challengers to the ATP main level events and has to date achieved only limited success on the ATP, however his first win was significant. In the ATP Masters Series event in Miami Berlocq defeated the much-hyped American junior and wildcard entrant Donald Young 6–0, 6–0. Both Berlocq and Young had never won a match on the ATP and this win was achieved on hardcourt which is not Berlocq's favoured surface. After defeating Young, Berlocq then played American James Blake and lost this match, 0–6, 0–6, therefore creating an unusual achievement of winning his first ATP-level match 6–0, 6–0 and then losing by the same scoreline in the next round.

Berlocq won two consecutive matches for the first time on the ATP to make the quarterfinals in Sopot after defeating Philipp Kohlschreiber and Lukáš Dlouhý.

On May 29, 2007, Berlocq upset the number thirty seed Julien Benneteau in four sets 6–7, 7–5, 6–2, 6–3 at the 2007 French Open. Berlocq won his first ever grasscourt match in Den Bosch against former World No. 1 Juan Carlos Ferrero in three sets.

2011

At the French Open he defeated Australian Bernard Tomic, 7–5, 6–4, 6–2 in the first round.

Berlocq was taken out by World No. 1 Novak Djokovic in three sets 6–0, 6–0, 6–2 in the second round of the 2011 US Open.[2]

2012

Berlocq started the year in Auckland, losing in the second round to Fernando Verdasco. At the 2012 Australian Open, he made it to the second round, where he was defeated by Ivo Karlović.

His best result of the year was in Viña del Mar, where he defeated World No. 25 Juan Ignacio Chela in the semifinals to set up a final appearance against Juan Mónaco, which he lost. He made the quarterfinals in São Paulo, Buenos Aires, and Acapulco, losing to World No. 11 Nicolás Almagro, David Nalbandian, and Santiago Giraldo, respectively. He also made the quarterfinals in Houston, exiting against World No. 15 Feliciano López. He did not have much success in the Masters 1000 events or Grand Slams, exiting in the first or second round of each. In Umag, he made the quarterfinals, losing to World No. 19 Alexandr Dolgopolov.

He represented Argentina at the 2012 Summer Olympics, but lost in the first round to Alex Bogomolov of Russia.

At the US Open, he was defeated in the first round by Bernard Tomic in four sets.

2013

He beat Maxime Authom 1–6, 7–6(5), 7–6(4), 6–2 in the first round of the Australian Open before losing to Kei Nishikori 6–7(4), 4–6, 1–6. At the French Open he lost his first round to 19th seed John Isner in straight sets. Berlocq won his first career title at the Swedish Open, defeating Fernando Verdasco in the final. He lost in the second round of the US Open in straight sets to Roger Federer, after winning his first round match against Santiago Giraldo in five sets.

2014

In April, Berlocq won the Portugal Open after defeating Tomáš Berdych in the final.
