He began competing as a professional in 2013, initially playing on the Futures and Challenger tours. After playing with a number of partners, he started competing more frequently with his brother Ken from March 2013 onwards. The pair reached the final of the Aegon Trophy on the Challenger Tour , before winning five Challenger titles in 2013, as of 23 September. These wins saw Neal move into the world top 200 in July 2013. At the 2013 Kremlin Cup the Skupski Brothers entered their first ATP World Tour tournament, progressing to the final, where they lost on a tie-break. Following the final, Neal moved into the top 100 for the first time, having been unranked at the start of the season. He ended 2013 ranked 86th in the world.
