Kudermetova has won one major doubles title on the WTA Tour, at the 2019 Wuhan Open, partnering with Duan Yingying. She has a career-high singles ranking of world No. 39, achieved on 11 November 2019, and a best doubles ranking of No. 23, achieved on 14 October 2019.
Kudermetova has won one doubles title on the WTA Tour, one singles title and four doubles titles on the WTA Challenger circuit, as well as four singles and 16 doubles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit. On 30 September 2019, she reached her best singles ranking of world No. 42, and her best doubles ranking of No. 24.
Partnering Evgeniya Rodina, Kudermetova won her first $50,000 tournament at the 2013 Kazan Summer Cup, defeating Alexandra Artamonova and Martina Borecká in the final. In the same tournament, she reached the semifinals as an unranked wildcard.
Kudermetova reached consecutive ITF 10k finals at Antalya at the start of the year, and after several strong performances, she cracked the world's Top 500 for the first time in her career. Playing in her first ITF 100k tournament at the President's Cup, she reached the quarterfinals before falling to compatriot and eventual champion Vitalia Diatchenko.
She ended the year at the 343rd spot in the rankings with a 24-14 win-loss record, lifting her maiden ITF title in the process.
2015 saw Kudermetova failing to win a single title on the ITF Women's Circuit as she had a disappointing 15-15 win-loss record with just one final reached. Her year-end ranking was 400.
After a lackluster start to the year, Kudermetova made her first final of the year at Andijan in May. It was followed by consecutive ITF 25k titles in Imola and Astana, ensuring that she moved into the world's Top 300 for the first time in her career. A fourth final of the season in Telavi marked Kudermetova's continuous rise. Her ranking soon made it possible for a direct admission into the main draw of the OEC Taipei WTA Challenger, which is her debut on the WTA tour. She won her first match against Varatchaya Wongteanchai before losing in the second round.
Overall, she enjoyed a 34-18 win-loss record in 2016 with a total of 2 ITF titles. Her year-end ranking improved by a total of 190 spots, ending the year at the 210th spot.
Her Grand Slam debut came at the Australian Open, where she lost in the first round of qualifying. Attempting a transition onto the WTA Tour, she played qualifying in multiple events but failed to reach the main draw in all of them. Kudermetova won her first qualifying round at the French Open but fell in her next match. She reached her first WTA 125K series quarterfinal at the OEC Taipei WTA Challenger to end off the year.
Kudermetova had a 28-24 win-loss record for the year, failing to reach any finals but also making more appearances at tournaments on the WTA Tour.
After starting the year with a triumph at the ITF 25k event at the Keio Challenger, she successfully qualified for her first WTA event at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, a Premier event. Riding on her momentum, Kudermetova stunned Top 30 player Carla Suárez Navarro in the first round before putting up a strong performance against eventual champion and Top 10 player Karolína Plí?ková.
Kudermetova reached the final round of qualifying at the French Open for the first time in her career, where she fell to Barbora Krej?íková. Another big win soon followed as she beat defending champion Anett Kontaveit in the first round of the Rosmalen Grass Court Championships. Furthermore, she went on to stun Belinda Bencic in her next match, reaching her first WTA quarterfinal. She soon reached yet another WTA quarterfinal at the Ladies Championship Gstaad, where she defeated Viktória Ku?mová before falling to Eugenie Bouchard in straight sets.
She had a 34-23 win-loss record for the year, gaining her first success on the WTA Tour and making her transition onto the main tour.
Kudermetova started the year with a quarterfinal run at the Shenzhen Open after qualifying for the main draw, defeating higher-ranked compatriot Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the process. She qualified for the main draw at the Australian Open for the first time in her career, losing to Sofia Kenin in the first round.
At the WTA 125k event in Guadalajara, Kudermetova was unseeded but still managed to lift the biggest title of her career by defeating Marie Bouzková 6-2, 6-0 in the final. Consecutive WTA quarterfinals came at the Ladies Open Lugano and the ?stanbul Cup
Her first wins in a Grand Slam main draw came at the 2019 French Open when she beat Caroline Wozniacki, the 13th seed, in the first round, and Zarina Diyas in the second. Despite winning the first set, Kudermetova was defeated by veteran Kaia Kanepi in the third round.
In July 2019, she reached the second round at Wimbledon, where she was beaten by Wozniacki. Prior to that, Kudermetova exceled at the Rosmalen Grass Court Championships, making the semifinals where she was defeated by eventual champion Alison Riske.
Kudermetova and Duan Yingying won the doubles title at the 2019 Wuhan Open, beating newly-crowned US Open champions Elise Mertens and Aryna Sabalenka in the final. It was their first time playing together, and Kudemetova's first doubles title. It took her inside the top 25 in the world doubles rankings for the first time. She reached the third round in the singles competition, which also took her to a career high ranking (No. 42). In the tournament, Kudermetova beat Belinda Bencic for her first career Top 10 win.
It was a fantastic Asian swing for Kudermetova as she reached two semifinals at the Japan Women's Open and the Tianjin Open respectively. To end off her first full season on the WTA Tour, the Russian stunned World No.4 Elina Svitolina in the second round of the Kremlin Cup and reached the quarterfinals as a result, falling to compatriot Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova.
A 44-25 win-loss record saw Kudermetova ending the year as the second highest-ranked Russian, lagging just behind Pavlyuchenkova, at the 40th spot with three WTA semifinals and one WTA 125k title.
Playing for Russia at the Fed Cup, Kudermetova has a win-loss record of 0-2. She made her debut in February 2014, losing to Australia's Samantha Stosur in straight sets in their World Group first-round tie. She was also nominated to represent her country during the 2018 Fed Cup World Group II, but was only selected to play a dead doubles rubber alongside Anna Kalinskaya.
