Whilst playing tennis for Lancashire, he first came into international prominence when he reached the finals of Le Petit As, Tarbes. A right-hander who favours slow hardcourts, but seems to be comfortable on all surfaces, Cox recently chose Marco Tennis Academy, in Marbella, as a training base, favouring the warm weather training in Spain over that in the United Kingdom.
Daniel spent the first few months of the year attempting to qualify for various Futures and Satellite tournaments. Although he came across little success initially, he finally qualified for a Futures event in Portugal before losing in the first round to an ATP top 500 player.
He took very little time to adjust himself to the 18 and under circuits when he finally made his debut in April. He reached the semi-finals of a Grade 5 tournament in Sutton and followed it by a finals appearance in a Grade 5 tournament in Nottingham the very next week.
Cox advanced to the second round of the Australian Open Boys' Singles championship before losing to Roman Jebavý of the Czech Republic. In the Boy's Doubles competition, Daniel reached the quarter-finals with Gastão Elias of Portugal.
2011 was the best year of Cox's career to date, reaching a career high singles ranking of 258 and receiving a wildcard into both the men's singles and doubles at Wimbledon. In the singles, he lost 2–6 4–6 4–6 to Sergiy Stakhovsky in round one. In the doubles, he partnered James Ward, losing again in round one to Mikhail Kukushkin and Michael Russell, 6–4 4–6 4–6.
