In 2022, Diallo captured his first singles title, defeating Andres Martin in straight sets at the ITF 25K in East Lansing. Also in 2022, he reached the qualifying last round at the ATP Masters 1000 National Bank Open as a wildcard after defeating the fourth seed and then world No. 59 James Duckworth in the first round. He was forced to retire in his next match against Hugo Gaston with an injury. In 2022, Diallo captured his first ATP Challenger title thanks to a victory over Shang Juncheng at the 80 tournament in Granby. Also in 2022, he reached his second ATP Challenger final at the 80 Series in Fairfield where he lost to Michael Mmoh. He was a member of the University of Kentucky tennis team from 2019 to 2022.
