Djokovic will face Jan-Lennard Struff for a spot in the round of 16. The German needed one hour and 40 minutes to move past American Michael Mmoh 6-2, 6-2, 7-5.
There were also second round wins for fourth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece, fifth seed Alexander Zverev of Germany and seventh seed David Goffin of Belgium.
"It was anybody's game really for a set and a half. I made some breaks and then obviously after winning the second set I felt more comfortable. I was returning better, I started to read his serve better, and I was pleased with my serve. Overall, it was a very good test, and I am happy to get through," said Djokovic, who is bidding to capture his fourth US Open trophy and 18th Grand Slam title.
Fourth seed Naomi Osaka of Japan booked her place in the third round with a comfortable 6-1, 6-2 win over Italy's Camila Giorgi.
"Our original partnership was mainly focused on the World Cup in China. We are thrilled that this has now expanded to be a more all-encompassing partnership across all FIBA competitions."
"I was really focused each game and each point. Especially against top players, one point can make the difference. So I had to stay very calm and keep going," the world number 50 added.
It was a bizarre way for the Frenchman to lose the jersey which he had kept for three days after winning the stage two.
