Arthur Fils started playing tennis at the age of 5 with his father Jean-Philippe. Licensed at the tennis club of Saint-Michel-sur-Orge, he has been trained at the French National Training Center (indoor) of the French Tennis Federation just next to Stade Roland Garros since 2019. He has been coached by Laurent Raymond since the end of 2022. At the end of the 2023, he was replaced by former No. 4 Sébastien Grosjean and former No. 3 and two-time Roland Garros winner Sergi Bruguera.

In the junior category, Arthur Fils won the Orange Bowl in 2020, becoming the tenth French player to win this prestigious tournament, equivalent to a world championship.

As a junior, Fils achieved his best results at the Grand Slam level at the 2021 French Open, where he won the boys' doubles title with Giovanni Mpetshi Perricard and placed runner-up in the boys' singles tournament, after which he was ranked as high as world No. 3 in July 2021.

Ranked No. 308 at the 2022 Rolex Paris Masters on his ATP debut, he became the youngest French qualifier to enter the main draw of a Masters 1000 tournament with a win against former top-10 player Fabio Fognini since Gaël Monfils in 2004, the year of his birth. He lost in the first round to Fognini, who entered the draw as lucky loser. As a result he moved 50 positions up in the rankings.

He won his maiden Challenger title at the 2023 Oeiras Indoors II and moved close to 60 positions up into the top 200 at No. 195 on January 16, 2023.

Ranked No. 163, he received a wildcard entry into the 2023 Open Sud de France and recorded his first match win on the ATP Tour by defeating former world no. 7 Richard Gasquet in straight sets. Next he defeated fourth seed Roberto Bautista Agut to reach the quarterfinals becoming the first player born in 2004 or later to reach this ATP level. He defeated another countryman, Quentin Halys, becoming the youngest Frenchman since Gasquet to reach an ATP semifinal in Metz in 2004. As a result he rose nearly 50 positions in the top 150 at world No. 117 on February 13, 2023. In the semifinals, Fils lost to second seed Jannik Sinner.

He reached back to back semifinals at the 2023 Open 13 Provence in Marseille defeating Roman Safiullin, second seed Jannik Sinner after getting a walkover, and Stan Wawrinka in straight sets. As a result he moved another 15 positions up a few spots shy of the top 100 to No. 104 on February 27, 2023. He lost to compatriot Benjamin Bonzi.

He qualified into the main draw for his first Masters 1000 on clay, the Italian Open and defeated fellow qualifier Juan Manuel Cerúndolo. He received a wildcard for the 2023 French Open.

Following reaching his third semifinal of the season in Lyon after a walkover from top seed Félix Auger-Aliassime due to shoulder injury, Fils made his debut in the top 100 of the rankings on May 29, 2023, the youngest active player to reach this milestone. He won his maiden title defeating fourth seed Francisco Cerúndolo becoming the youngest champion in the tournament history. Ranked No. 112, Fils was also the lowest-ranked champion and the third first time winner in the season.

In his French Open debut, his first-ever appearance in a Major tournament, he was defeated in the first round by Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. He reached the top 60 on June 26, 2023.

He was awarded a wildcard for his main draw debut at the 2023 Wimbledon Championships losing again in the first round to Alejandro Davidovich Fokina. At the same tournament in doubles, Fils recorded his first Grand Slam doubles win, playing along with fellow countryman Luca Van Assche, defeating brothers Stefanos Tsitsipas and Petros Tsitsipas in the first round.

Fils reached his first ATP 500 semifinal at the Hamburg European Open, defeating top seed Casper Ruud in the quarter final, his first win against a Top 5 player, before losing to the eventual winner Alexander Zverev, in the semi-finals. He made his debut into the Top 50 following the tournament.

At the US Open, Fils earned his first Major win, defeating 24th seed Tallon Griekspoor in the first round. He then lost to Matteo Arnaldi in the second round.

Ranked No. 44 at the 2023 Rolex Shanghai Masters, on his debut at this tournament, he defeated Alejandro Davidovich Fokina in the first round. He reached the top 40 on 16 October 2023. He reached his second final at the 2023 European Open with a win over top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets with two tiebreaks, his second top-10 win of the season and his career. He became the youngest finalist in the tournament's history. In November, he qualified for the 2023 Next Generation ATP Finals.

Arthur Fils is a powerful player and uses his serve and forehand to quickly finish points. Indeed, as he said to Ouest-France in 2023: "In the way I play, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga's the one I identify with the most".
