• 5 MINUTE READ

The 2022 season just gets better and better for Britain’s tennis stars.

Just eight months into the year and the Brits have surpassed 100 professional titles across the ATP, WTA and ITF Tours - reaching 115 unique titles.

The Brits brilliant 2022 season so far has seen them break the 100 title mark two months ahead of last year.

Here’s a recap of the 60 British champions and the biggest highlights of the season so far...

Grand Slam champions

There’s been Grand Slam glory aplenty for our British wheelchair stars this season. The world’s top ranked doubles duo Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid extended their record to 10 consecutive major titles as they capture the Australian Open and French Open crowns once again this year – winning both finals against Shingo Kunieda and Gustavo Fernandez in match tie-breaks.

It was also a stunning start to the season for Andy Lapthorne, who captured his sixth Australian Open doubles crown alongside American, David Wagner.

As the tennis world turned their attention to London and The Championships, Wimbledon this summer, Neal Skupski rose to the occasion to retain his mixed doubles title with Desirae Krawczyk. They defeated Australian duo Matthew Ebden and Samantha Stosur 6-4, 6-3 to become the first team to defend the title since 1997.

Brits continue to rise on the ATP Tour

British No.1 Cam Norrie has been a standout on the ATP Tour this season. Norrie has doubled his trophy tally this year to four ATP crowns, having lifted titles at the Delray Beach Open and the Lyon Open. The Brit took down the big serving Reilly Opelka 7-6(1), 7-6(4) in the final of Delray Beach and followed it up by winning his first title on clay just a few months later – defeating Alex Molcan 6-3, 6-7(3), 6-1 in France.

His impressive performances have seen Norrie reach the top 10 for the first time in his career, becoming only the fourth Brit to do so in the Open Era.

World No.1 Joe Salisbury has been firmly in the spotlight this season having strung together several strong performances at major tournaments this year. His best result of the season so far came at the Monte-Carlo Masters, where he and Rajeev Ram beat Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah in a tense match tie-break to seal their second ATP 1000 title.

Skupski’s Wimbledon title followed an unbelievable vein of form on the ATP Tour that has seen him rise into the top five in the rankings, becoming one half of the most in-form team on the circuit. Skupski and Dutch partner Wesley Koolhof have won an incredible five titles this season, including Melbourne, Adelaide, Doha, s’Hertogenbosch and their crown jewel, the ATP Masters in Madrid.

Another success story of the ATP doubles season so far has been Lloyd Glasspool, who recently teamed up with regular partner Harri Heliovaara to beat Rohan Bopanna and Matwe Middelkoop in Hamburg to claim their second career title together.

Rackets and Role Models | Jack Draper

Over to the ATP Challenger Tour and the Brits have won 11 combined singles and doubles titles so far this year. Leading the way is 20-year-old Jack Draper, who has risen into the world’s top 100 with four Challenger titles to start the year – the most of any player on tour. Draper – who is supported by the LTA Pro-Scholarship Programme – won three back-to-back titles in Forli before claiming victory in Saint-Beiruc.

Draper is joined by Dan Evans, Jay Clarke, Paul Jubb, Ken Skupski, Jonny O’Mara, Julian Cash, Henry Patten and Billy Harris as champions on the tour this year.

Women’s stars bring home ITF crowns

British stars Katie Boulter and Katie Swan have reaped the biggest success in the ITF singles events in 2022. Boulter - also supported by the Pro-Scholarship Programme - claimed her first title in four years earlier this season at the W60 Grenoble, while Swan recently beat fellow Brit Jodie Burrage in the W60 Lexington.

The Brits doubles dominance extends to the women’s game as well, with four Brits now featuring inside the world’s top 90. Alicia Barnett and Olivia Nicholls have been the highest risers this season, having won titles at the W100 Grodzisk Mazowiecki, W60 Bellinzona and reaching their first WTA final.

British No.1 Sam Murray Sharan has won two W60 titles this year with Xenia Knoll and Mariam Bolkvadze, while Tara Moore was victorious at the W60+H Traralgon.

One of the stars of the season has been 20-year-old Sonay Kartal, who has won four singles trophies in Britain in 2022. Kartal started the season by winning the W25 Birmingham in February and just went from strength to strength – securing the title in Glasgow and then back-to-back trophies in Nottingham.

24-year-old Alastair Gray – who is supported by the Men’s & Women’s Programme has been another standout this season, tying up three singles crowns of his own in Shrewsbury, Glasgow and Nottingham.

Meanwhile, Greg Slade took his first ITF Wheelchair Tour title in the quad doubles event in Bolton earlier this year alongside Lapthorne, with Lucy Shuker winning the women’s singles crowns at the ITF2 and ITF3 events.

British wheelchair success continues

Following on from his Australian Open doubles title earlier in the year, Lapthorne broke new ground at the British Open this year, winning the quad singles title in his sixth final appearance.

Britain’s young stars have also been making headlines this season. Ben Bartram claimed the Nottingham Futures singles title before going on to win the biggest trophy of his career at the Flanders ITF3 event to complete a sequence of four ITF Futures men’s singles titles. Meanwhile Dahnon Ward and Andrew Penney recently won their first ITF2 doubles event at the Austrian Open.
