Kisgyörgy was twice the runner-up at the Hungarian Tennis Championships, in 1999 and 2001, but was more successful as a doubles player during his career. He won seven doubles titles on the Challenger circuit and participated in one Grand Slam, the 2004 Wimbledon Championships.[1] With Łukasz Kubot as his partner, the pair defeated South Americans Juan Ignacio Chela and Luis Horna in a close first round encounter, won 9–7 in the third set. They were then eliminated in the second round by Bob and Mike Bryan.[2]

He began playing Davis Cup matches for Hungary in 1997 and went on to appear in a total of 24 ties. In singles he won 16 of his 24 singles rubbers and was the victor in seven out of 13 doubles matches.[3]
