He has a career high ATP singles ranking of No. 76 achieved on 16 November 2020. He also has a career high ATP doubles ranking of No. 166 achieved on 18 January 2021. Caruso has won 5 ITF Futures singles and two ATP Challenger singles titles, and 4 ITF Futures and one ATP Challenger doubles titles in his career.

Career

Caruso made his ATP and Masters 1000 main draw debut at the 2016 Italian Open, where he received a main draw wildcard.[4] He lost in the first round to Nick Kyrgios 6-1, 6-2.[5] Season of 2019, was a season of a progress. At the 2019 French Open, he marked his first Grand Slam win and later reached third round.[6] He then lost to world No. 1 Novak Djokovic.[7] A month later, he had successful participation on Umag Open. In the second round, he recorded his biggest win to date against world No. 14 Borna ?ori? and was advanced to his first ATP quarterfinal.[8] The following victory against Facundo Bagnis, provided him to get to his first ATP semifinal as well.[9] He lost to Du?an Lajovi? in the semifinal. In early October, he won Barcelona Challenger and secured his place in the top 100 for the first time.[4]

Despite not having an impressive season in 2020, Caruso made a bit of a progress. At the 2020 US Open, he reached another Grand Slam third round, recording his first two wins there. He then failed to reach fourth round, after losing to Andrey Rublev.[10] Right after that, he defeated Tennys Sandgren in the first round of Italian Open in order to reach his first Masters 1000 second round. However, he lost to then world No. 1 Novak Djokovic.[11] The end of the season was important for Caruso. After defeating world No. 21 Félix Auger-Aliassime in order to reach quarterfinal,[12] Caruso secured his singles highest-ranking of No. 76 on the following ranking.[4]

Caruso initially failed to qualify for the main draw of the 2022 Australian Open, losing in the final round of the qualifying stage, but earned a place in the main draw as a lucky loser after world number one Novak Djokovic was deported from Australia for flouting COVID-19 regulations. Caruso took Djokovic's original slot at the top of the draw,[13] having been given the position as the schedule for the opening day had already been released.[14] He lost to another Serb, Miomir Kecmanovi?, in the first round.[15]
