Tennis career[edit]

2017[edit]

Hüsler made his ATP main draw doubles debut at the Swiss Indoors doubles tournament, where he partnered former world no 1. Nenad Zimonjić having received a wildcard into the tournament.[1] The pair defeated Adrian Mannarino and Benoît Paire to give Hüsler a win in his first tour level match, before losing in the quarterfinals to Marcus Daniell and Dominic Inglot.

2018[edit]

Hüsler claimed his first ATP Challenger Tour doubles title in his first final, partnering Sem Verbeek at the Winnipeg Challenger.[2] Just over a week later, Hüsler made his ATP main draw singles debut at the Swiss Open Gstaad, where he defeated former top-10 player Nicolás Almagro in a third-set tiebreaker in the first round, before losing to Facundo Bagnis in the second round.[3] Hüsler received a wildcard into the doubles draw for the Swiss Indoors for the second consecutive year, this time with Verbeek as his partner.[4] The pair upset Michael Venus and Raven Klaasen, the number 1 seeds for the tournament and number 7 doubles partnership in the 2018 Doubles Team Race Rankings in the first round.

Davis Cup[edit]

Hüsler made his Davis Cup debut for Switzerland in the 2018 Davis Cup World Group tie with Kazakhstan, where he partnered Luca Margaroli in the doubles. The pair were defeated, coming back from two sets to love down, but losing the fifth set to Timur Khabibulin and Aleksandr Nedovyesov. Hüsler made his singles debut in the following rubber, which by this point was dead as Switzerland were already 3–0 down. Hüsler won in straight sets over Roman Khassanov, salvaging the only point for Switzerland in the tie.[5] He opened up Switzerland's World Group Play-off tie against Sweden, losing from two sets to love up against Markus Eriksson, as Switzerland were relegated from the World Group.
