Professional career

2018: Breakthrough, top 100 debut

He entered the top 150 when he hit a career high ranking of No. 147 on 26 February 2018 after reaching as a qualifier the semifinals of the 2018 Open 13 in Marseille, ranked World No. 193, defeating Laslo Djere, second seed Stan Wawrinka 6-4, 1-1 when the Swiss retired, home favourite Nicolas Mahut in three sets. He became the first Belarusian tour-level semi-finalist since Max Mirnyi at 2005 Rotterdam.[3] He entered the top 100 on 13 August 2018 after a third round run also as a qualifier, where he lost to fourth seed Kevin Anderson, for the first time in his career at a Masters 1000 level at the 2018 Canadian Open.[4]

2021: First top 10 win, Wimbledon fourth round, First ATP title, Top 50 debut

Ivashka reached his first quarterfinal for 2021 at the 2021 Andalucia Open where he defeated two Spaniards en route Pedro Martínez and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina before falling to the eventual finalist third Spaniard Jaume Munar. He reached his second semifinal in his career at the 2021 BMW Open in Munich as a qualifier, more than three years after his run to the final four at the 2018 Open 13 in Marseille, in a stunning defeat against the top seed two-time champion and World No. 6 Alexander Zverev for the biggest win of his career.[5][6]

He also qualified and reached his third quarterfinal for 2021 at the 2021 Eastbourne International defeating Alexei Popyrin. At a career high of World No. 79 achieved on 28 June 2021, on his debut in the main draw of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships, Ivashka reached the fourth round of a Grand Slam for the first time in his career defeating Jaume Munar, Jeremy Chardy and Jordan Thompson, having never passed the second round of a major previously.[7] He lost to eventual finalist, seventh seed Matteo Berrettini. He reached a career-high of World No. 63 on 12 July 2021.

At the 2021 Winston-Salem Open Ivashka reached his fourth quarterfinal for 2021, defeating ninth seeded Jan-Lennard Struff, and his second semifinal defeating top seed and World No. 12 Pablo Carreno Busta.[8][9] He then defeated Emil Ruusuvuori to reach his first ATP final and then defeated Mikael Ymer for the title in 56 minutes to become the first player from Belarus to win an ATP Tour singles title since Max Mirnyi in 2003 at Rotterdam.[10] He became the eighth First-Time ATP Tour Champion in 2021.[11] As a result of the victory, he entered the top 60 at World No. 53 on 30 August 2021 for the first time in his career.

At the 2021 US Open he reached the third round for the first time in his career defeating Tennys Sandgren and Vasek Pospisil before losing again to the sixth seed Matteo Berrettini.

A month later after reaching the semifinals at the 2021 Astana Open, he made his top 50 debut as World No. 45 on 27 September 2021.
