Professional career[edit]

2013[edit]

After beginning the year outside the top 250, Herbert rose steadily up the rankings. He qualified for the 2013 Paris Masters, where he defeated Benoît Paire for the loss of only four games in the first round of the main draw - his first ever ATP Tour main draw win. In the second round, he had two set points before losing to Novak Djokovic in straight sets. He ended the year with an ATP singles ranking of 151, compared with 257 12 months earlier.

2014[edit]

Herbert made his Grand Slam main draw debut in 2014, first receiving a wildcard into the French Open, where he faced American number 10 seed John Isner in his opening match, losing in three tight sets. He then made it through three rounds of qualifying, beating Borna Ćorić, Daniel Kosakowski and Miloslav Mečíř, Jr. to make the main draw at Wimbledon for the first time. In the first round he faced Jack Sock, however lost in four sets despite taking the first set in a tiebreaker. Herbert got his fifth career main draw win at the ATP Tour level at the Swiss Indoors in Basel, beating Édouard Roger-Vasselin in a tight three-setter to set up a clash with 14-time Grand Slam winner Rafael Nadal, his first meeting with a Major champion and former world number 1.

2015[edit]

Pierre-Hugues Herbert 2015 Winston-Salem Open

Herbert again battled through three rounds of qualifying, beating Hans Podlipnik Castillo, Facundo Argüello and Íñigo Cervantes (the latter over five sets) to make the main draw of Wimbledon. In the first round he beat Hyeon Chung in a three-hour, five-set match, clinching the final set 10–8, claiming his first win in the main draw of a grand slam. In the second round, he lost in straight sets to Bernard Tomic, the player who had beaten him in the semi-finals of Junior US Open in 2009.

In doubles, Herbert reached two Grand Slam finals alongside fellow Frenchman Nicolas Mahut. At the Australian Open, they lost the final to Fabio Fognini and Simone Bolelli. At the US Open, they won the final against Jamie Murray and John Peers, becoming the first all-French pair to win the men's doubles title at the US Open. Their US Open victory marked the sixth time that an all-French pair had won a Grand Slam men's doubles title in the Open Era.[2]On the 22nd of June, Herbert broke into the top 20 in doubles for the first time, reaching a career high of No. 20 in the world.

2016[edit]

Herbert and Nicolas Mahut won three ATP World Tour Masters 1000 doubles titles in a row in the first half of 2016, in Indian Wells, Miami, and Monte Carlo. At the French Open, he and Mahut, seeded no.1, lost in the third round to Feliciano López and Marc López.
