Salisbury made his ATP Tour main-draw debut at the U.S. National Indoor Championships partnering David O’Hare, losing to the Bryan brothers in the first round.

He reached the semifinals in the Wimbledon men’s doubles with Frederik Nielsen.[2]

Playing alongside Ben McLachlan, he won his first ATP Tour doubles title at the Shenzhen Open.[3]

At Wimbledon in 2019, he played alongside Rajeev Ram during the men’s doubles. They made it to the round of 16.[4]

Also with Ram, Salisbury won the 2020 Australian Open, beating wildcards Max Purcell and Luke Saville in the final. As a result he reached a career-high ranking of World No. 3 on 10 February 2020.

He competed in the Australian Open with partner Rajeev Ram to defend their title, but they lost to Ivan Dodig and Filip Polášek in the final.[5]

He won the mixed-doubles title at the French Open with Desirae Krawczyk. He also reached the mixed doubles final of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships partnering Harriet Dart.

He reached the final and won his first Masters 1000 in Canada at the National Bank Open with Ram, defeating world No. 1 and No. 2 Croatians, Pavic and Mektic, his second final for the year at a Masters level after the Italian Open, where they lost to the Croatian pair.[6]

At the US Open Salisbury partnering with Ram reached the final, defeating Max Purcell/Matthew Ebden in a long and narrow three hours match with three tiebreaks, saving four match points in the quarterfinals[7] and Sam Querrey/Steve Johnson in the semifinals.[8] The pair won the men’s doubles championship, defeating Jamie Murray/Bruno Soares in the final. It was the first time in the Open Era that two Britons met in a major men’s doubles final and the first time in 12 years that the US Open men’s doubles final went to a deciding set.[9] As a result he equaled his best career ranking of World No. 3 in doubles on 20 September 2021. Seeded second, he also won his second mixed-doubles Grand Slam title at the US Open, again with Krawczyk, defeating Marcelo Arévalo and Giuliana Olmos in straight sets.
