2015

2016

Struff reached the third round of the Paris Masters as a qualifier, his best showing at the Masters 1000 level thus far, after beating world No. 3 Stan Wawrinka, saving a match point.[1]

2017

Struff reached the semifinals of both Winston-Salem and St. Petersburg.[1]

2018: Australian Open doubles semifinal, First doubles title

Struff got to the semifinals in the Australian Open men's doubles in partnership with Ben McLachlan, including a win over the No. 1 seeds ?ukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo.[2]

In Tokyo, Struff defeated Marin ?ili? and had a match point in the second set of his quarterfinal encounter against Denis Shapovalov. At the same tournament, he won the first title of his career in doubles, partnering again with McLachlan.[3]

2019: French Open fourth round

Struff upset compatriot and at that time World No. 3 Alexander Zverev at the Indian Wells Masters in the third round.[4]

He had his best Grand Slam result by reaching the fourth round of the French Open, where he lost to top seed Novak Djokovic in straight sets.[5]

2020: Top 30 debut

He had his best ATP Masters 1000 showing at the 2020 Western & Southern Open in New York, where he reached the quarterfinals and was defeated by World No. 1 and eventual champion Novak Djokovic. As a result, he entered the top 30 for the first time in his career and reached a career-high in singles of World No. 29 on 31 August 2020.

2021: ATP Cup semifinal, First ATP final, Second French Open fourth round

Struff began his season in February with the 2021 ATP Cup, where he represented Germany with Alexander Zverev, Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies to reach the semifinals.

Struff reached his first ATP final at the 2021 BMW Open in Munich after defeating Filip Krajinovi? in the quarterfinals, after a three hour match, and Ilya Ivashka in the semifinals. This was his best performance at this tournament since reaching the semifinals in 2014 (l. to Fabio Fognini).[6]. He lost to Nikoloz Basilashvili in straight sets.

At the 2021 French Open Struff upset the seventh seed Andrey Rublev in five sets. He proceeded to the fourth round after wins over Facundo Bagnis and Carlos Alcaraz in straight sets.[7]
