British tennis stars reach new levels of success with over 200 titles in 2022


This year, Britain’s pro tennis stars have won an incredible 209 unique titles, up from 141 in 2021. Not only that, but in 2022, 85 players lifted trophies – that’s 25 more than last year.

Safe to say it’s been an incredibly successful season for the British stars and the only way is up as we head into 2023.

Let’s take a look back at some of the biggest wins, record breaking titles and career firsts that our players achieved this year on the ATP, WTA and ITF tours.

Bringing home the biggest titles

We kick off the with most coveted trophies in the game – the Grand Slams – and our incredible British champions.

From the sunny shores of Australia to the concrete jungle of New York, the Brits have won six Grand Slam trophies in 2022, with Joe Salisbury, Neal Skupski, Alfie Hewett, Gordon Reid and Andy Lapthorne tasting victory on the biggest stage.


Salisbury added to his impressive tally of major trophies with American Rajeev Ram at the US Open, defeating fellow Brit Skupski and Wesley Koolhof, to become Britain’s most successful men’s doubles player in the Open Era. The 30-year-old Putney native also made history this year in becoming world No.1, being the first British player to win the Nitto ATP Finals doubles event and claiming another two ATP Masters crowns in Monte Carlo and Cincinnati.

The only doubles player to rival his success this year is Skupski, who successful defended his Wimbledon mixed doubles title with Desirae Krawczyk back in July. Skupski also made waves on the men’s doubles tour this year, joining forces with Wesley Koolhof to win seven tour titles, including three ATP Masters, as well as finishing the year as world No.1.


Hewett continues to dominate the men’s wheelchair Grand Slams, with the Brit bringing home another three this year. After finishing runner-up at Wimbledon, Hewett went to the US Open with a point to prove, winning his third singles crown in New York, beating Shingo Kunieda 7-6(2), 6-1. The wheelchair doubles dream team Hewett and Reid also collected two titles this year in Melbourne and Paris, with injuries standing in the way of a third Grand Slam season.

Rounding off the majors this season was Lapthorne, who kick-started his season in style at the Australian Open with his quad doubles partner David Wagner. This was Lapthorne’s sixth doubles title Down Under and the 15th major success of his career.

Taking the tours by storm


Cam Norrie has continued to shine this year on the ATP Tour – reaching as high as world No.8 and making his first Grand Slam semi-final at Wimbledon. This year the 27-year-old has doubled his career singles title tally to four, as the British No.1 brought home the goods at Delray Beach and won his first tournament on clay in Lyon. That’s not to mention his two runners-up finishes in Los Cabos and Acapulco.

Back on the doubles side, Alicia Barnett and Olivia Nicholls have been one of the rising teams on the WTA Tour. A year of many firsts and career-best wins that were broken week after week, Barnett and Nicholls finished the season with a maiden WTA title in Granby back in August.

Lloyd Glasspool looks set to take the 2023 ATP doubles season by storm with his Finnish partner Harri Heliovaara, having risen to world No.12 this year, winning their second title together at the ATP 500 in Hamburg and reaching seven finals.

British No.1 Lucy Shuker has continued to make progress this year and has found some top wins alongside America’s Dana Matthewson. The best of her six titles this year came at the Georgia Open, where the duo overcame top seeds Aniek Van Koot and Zhenzhen Zhu 7-6(5), 1-6, 10-6 in the final.


Ben Bartram is one of five British wheelchair stars to have won their first pro singles titles this year in Alghero – adding to his array of ITF trophies as well as the Junior Masters and US Open Junior victories. Huge congratulations to Dahnon Ward, Abbie Breakwell, Ruby Bishop and Robyn Love as well on their maiden singles wins in 2022.

Record breakers on the Challenger Tour

The Brits have been smashing records left and right on the ATP Challenger Tour this season, with a total of nine singles titles – the most Britain has ever recorded.

Jack Draper - who is supported by our Pro Scholarship Programme - was the star of the show at the beginning of the year, sealing four titles in Forli and Saint Brieuc in the first quarter of the year – a new tour record. A 24-4 win record on the Challenger Tour this year set him up perfectly to become one of the best young prospects in the game, breaking into the world’s top 50 thanks to strong outings at the Rothesay International Eastbourne, Canadian Masters and US Open.

Elsewhere, Dan Evans won his second Rothesay Open Nottingham title, becoming the first player since 1999 to win three Challengers on grass. Jay Clarke also won his third Challenger crown and first since 2019 on the hard courts of Morelos with a nail-biting final set tie-break win over Adrian Menendez-Maceiras.

There were first Challenger titles for Britain’s Paul Jubb, Stuart Parker and Jan Choinski, who got their breakthroughs in Santa Cruz, Nonthaburi and Campinas respectively.

Doubles duo Henry Patten and Julian Cash were the talk of the Challenger Tour this year, shattering the record for most titles won by a doubles pair with an unbelievable 10 trophies. What makes it even more impressive is that they managed this in just six months, starting from June at the Surbiton Trophy.


Nothing beats winning on home soil

Thanks to our enhanced Performance Competitions Calendar, new for 2022, there were more pro-level tournaments in Great Britain this year than ever before.

Having more events on home soil has given our players the opportunity to build their rankings and most importantly, seal titles on the home stage. In fact, the Brits have won 55 titles at home this year.

21-year-old Sonay Kartal took full advantage of this earlier in the year with four W25 singles titles in Birmingham, Glasgow and Nottingham – helping her to break into the top 200, clinch a spot in the British Billie Jean King Cup team, and earn herself a wild card to the main draw at Wimbledon.


Lily Miyazaki had the performance of her life at the W60 Glasgow, defeating Heather Watson to seal the biggest title of her career. Elsewhere, Freya Christie and Ali Collins have been one of the in-form doubles teams in Britain, with titles in Foxhills, Aldershot and Glasgow, while Eden Silva managed to clinch her first singles trophy since 2017 at the W25 Nottingham.

24-year-old Alastair Gray has also dominated in Britain this year with five singles and doubles titles to his name, stretching from Bath to Glasgow. Rising star Arthur Fery has also won ITF titles in Britain this year, with Giles Hussey wrapping up another three doubles trophies as well.


Shuker, Lapthorne and Greg Slade shone at the Bolton Indoor ITF events earlier this year, with Shuker coming out on top in both the singles and doubles, while Lapthorne and Slade joined forces to seal the ITF 2 quad doubles title. The Brits also excelled at this year’s Nottingham Futures, with Bartram and Ward bringing home the titles on the men’s side and Breakwell sealing the double in the women’s draws.
