2017: First Futures title
In September 2017, Humbert claimed his first Futures title in Bagnères-de-Bigorre where he had received a wild card. A week later, he was again awarded a wild card into the 2017 Moselle Open where he reached the second round but fell in three sets to Simone Bolelli.
2018: Entering the top 100
After a disappointing first half of the season on the ATP Challenger Tour, Humbert experienced a breakthrough over the summer when he reached three Challenger finals in as many weeks. After losing the first two in Gatineau and Granby, Humbert captured his maiden Challenger title in Segovia. That stretch allowed him to qualify for the US Open qualifying tournament, where he won his spot his first single Grand Slam main draw. In the opening round, he defeated Collin Altamirano, a fellow qualifier, before losing in four sets to Stan Wawrinka.
In September, Humbert reached once again the final of a Challenger tournament in Cassis, falling to Enzo Couacaud. The next week, he received a wild card into the 2018 Moselle Open, where in reached the second round by defeating Bernard Tomic before falling to Nikoloz Basilashvili.

The following week, Humbert played ATP 250 Auckland, after qualifying once again. Once in the main draw, he drew lucky loser Pablo Cuevas, defeating him in straight sets for his first ATP win of the year. He then faced Philipp Kohlschreiber, whom he ultimately fell to 4–6, 4–6.
Thereafter, Ugo Humbert played in the Australian Open main draw. He fell in the round of 128 to countryman, Jérémy Chardy in 5 thrilling sets, 6–3, 6–7(6), 4–6, 7–6(4), 6–7(6) finishing in the first ever Australian Open super tiebreak to 10 points, which he lost 6–10.
In February, Humbert reached his first ATP semifinal, in Marseille, including a surprising upset against number 2 seed and 13th ranked Borna Ćorić in the round of 16. He subsequently went on to reach the fourth round of Wimbledon later in the year, where he lost to the eventual and defending champion, world No. 1 Novak Djokovic.
