2011[edit]

In 2011, Inglot had his most quiet season to date as he struggled for form and even to play matches. This was mainly due to a serious ankle injury he suffered at the start of the year. He did, however, win a title on a wildcard at a Challenger tour event, where he partnered Treat Conrad Huey at the Charlottesville open. They won the final in three sets.

2012[edit]

Inglot made his first ATP Tour final at the 2012 U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships in Houston partnering Treat Conrad Huey in doubles, but they lost to the much more experienced duo of James Blake and Sam Querrey.

Inglot qualified for his first tournament other than Wimbledon at the French Open, where he once again partnered Huey. They made it to the third round, defeating the fifth seeds Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecău in straight sets in the second round, but lost to tenth seeds Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi and Jean-Julien Rojer in the next round. Later that week, he went on to win the Aegon Trophy again partnering Huey, defeating fellow countryman Jonathan Marray and Frederik Nielsen of Denmark. This raised his doubles ranking to a career high of rank no. 86 in the world.

At Wimbledon, he partnered Huey again, but unfortunately they lost in the first round in a five-set thriller to Jonathan Erlich and Andy Ram. He also competed in the mixed doubles event for first time at Wimbledon on a wildcard. He partnered Laura Robson, and they made it into the third round, defeating defending champions Jürgen Melzer and Iveta Benešová in three sets on the way. They eventually lost to fellow Brit Colin Fleming and Hsieh Su-wei of Taiwan in straight sets both on tiebreakers.

Inglot made his second ATP Tour final of the season at the 2012 Citi Open in Washington, D.C., again partnering Treat Conrad Huey. They defeated Kevin Anderson and Sam Querrey in three sets. This was Inglot and Huey's first first tour-level title of their career and as a team. This win raised his doubles ranking to a career high no. 52 in the world.

At the US Open Inglot again partnered Huey. They were beaten in the second round by 15th seeds Alexander Peya and Bruno Soares in three sets.

In late September, Inglot qualified for his first singles match at ATP tour level. He lost the match in straight sets to the far more experienced Alex Bogomolov, Jr..

In his final tournament of the season, Inglot had more success with partner Huey, making it to his third ATP tour final of the season at the Swiss Indoors. They faced the top seeds and very experienced duo of Daniel Nestor and Nenad Zimonjić. Unfortunately they lost the final on a champions tiebreaker. However, this did raise his doubles ranking to a career-high no. 40 in the world, the first time he has been inside the top 40.

2013[edit]

In 2013, Inglot made it to four ATP finals, including the Swiss Indoors again with Huey, and this time they came off victorious.
