2022: Out of top 250

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 No. 1 Novak Djokovic was deported from Australia due to COVID-19 visa issues related to the ban for unvaccinated visitors. Caruso took Djokovic's original slot at the top of the draw, having been given the position as the schedule for the opening day had already been released. He lost to another Serb, Miomir Kecmanović, in the first round.
