At the 2006 Asian Games held in Doha, Cecil won bronze in the men's tennis singles event losing to Lee Hyung Taik of South Korea. In the doubles event he, along with fellow Filipino-American tennis player Eric Taino, won bronze losing to top doubles players Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes of India.

Mamiit represented the Philippines Davis Cup team, where he was undefeated until 2008.
From January 2011 through the clay court season Mamiit was the hitting partner for Maria Sharapova where she won the 2012 French Open to complete her Career Grand Slam.
