He is a four-time Grand Slam champion, having won the 2020 Australian Open and the 2021 US Open in men's doubles partnering Rajeev Ram. Salisbury has also won two mixed doubles titles, at the 2021 French and US Opens alongside Desirae Krawczyk. He also finished runner-up at the 2021 Australian Open in men's doubles and the 2021 Wimbledon Championships in mixed doubles, with Ram and Harriet Dart respectively. In April 2022, Salisbury became the third British world No. 1 in either singles or doubles, after Jamie and Andy Murray.[2] He has won nine doubles titles on the ATP Tour, including the 2021 Canadian Open and 2022 Monte-Carlo Masters, and finished runner-up at the Italian Open and ATP Finals in 2021.

Salisbury made his Davis Cup debut for Great Britain in 2021, and also competed at the 2020 Summer Olympics alongside Andy Murray.

EducationEdit

Salisbury went to King's College School, Wimbledon, leaving in 2010.

Professional careerEdit

2014: ATP debutEdit

Salisbury made his ATP Tour main-draw debut at the U.S. National Indoor Championships partnering David O'Hare, losing to the Bryan brothers in the first round.

2018: First ATP doubles titleEdit

He reached the semifinals in the Wimbledon men's doubles with Frederik Nielsen.[3]

Playing alongside Ben McLachlan, he won his first ATP Tour doubles title at the Shenzhen Open.[4]

2019-2020: New partnership, Australian Open doubles title, World No. 3Edit

At Wimbledon in 2019, he played alongside Rajeev Ram during the men's doubles. They made it to the round of 16.[5]

Also with Ram, Salisbury won the 2020 Australian Open, beating wildcards Max Purcell and Luke Saville in the final. As a result he reached a career-high ranking of World No. 3 on 10 February 2020.

2021: French Open mixed-doubles, US Open doubles & mixed-doubles titles, First Masters 1000 titleEdit

He competed in the Australian Open with partner Rajeev Ram to defend their title, but they lost to Ivan Dodig and Filip Polášek in the final.[6]

He won the mixed-doubles title at the French Open with Desirae Krawczyk. He also reached the mixed doubles final of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships partnering Harriet Dart.

He reached the final and won his first Masters 1000 in Canada at the National Bank Open with Ram, defeating world No. 1 and No. 2 Croatians, Pavic and Mektic, his second final for the year at a Masters level after the Italian Open, where they lost to the Croatian pair.[7]

At the US Open Salisbury partnering with Ram reached the final, defeating Max Purcell/Matthew Ebden in a long and narrow three hours match with three tiebreaks, saving four match points in the quarterfinals[8] and Sam Querrey/Steve Johnson in the semifinals.[9] The pair won the men’s doubles championship, defeating Jamie Murray/Bruno Soares in the final. It was the first time in the Open Era that two Britons met in a major men's doubles final and the first time in 12 years that the US Open men’s doubles final went to a deciding set.[10] As a result he equaled his best career ranking of World No. 3 in doubles on 20 September 2021. Seeded second, he also won his second mixed-doubles Grand Slam title at the US Open, again with Krawczyk, defeating Marcelo Arévalo and Giuliana Olmos in straight sets. He became the first man since Bob Bryan in 2010 to win the US Open doubles and mixed titles in the same year.[11]

At the 2021 San Diego Open Salisbury won his eight title and third of the season partnering Neal Skupski.[12]

2022: Doubles World Number 1, Masters 1000 titleEdit

At the 2022 Miami Open, Salisbury and Ram reached the quarterfinals, losing to eventual champions Hubert Hurkacz and John Isner. Following this result, Salisbury became the new World No. 1 in men's doubles on 4 April 2022. He became the second British man to be doubles number 1, after Jamie Murray.[13] He won the 2022 Monte-Carlo Masters with Ram defeating 6th seeded pair of Robert Farah and Juan Sebastian Cabal.[14]
