XIX Commonwealth Games-2010 Delhi Tennis (Men’s Double) Paul Hanley (right) and Peter Luczak of Australia won the Gold medal, at R K Khanna Tennis Stadium, in New Delhi on October 09, 2010

He made the 2005 Wimbledon and 2011 Australian Open finals in mixed doubles, playing with Tatiana Perebiynis and Chan Yung-jan respectively, falling short on both occasions. His best results came alongside Wayne Arthurs and Kevin Ullyett, with whom Hanley formed long-term doubles partnerships. Hanley has an 8–4 win-loss record on the Australian Davis Cup Team. The Australian's highest doubles ranking was World Number 5. His parents, Jay and Judy, co-own a tennis centre, which is one of the main reasons why Hanley pursued a career in the sport.
