Rising Belarusian tennis player Ilya Ivashka had a memorable year in 2021. He made his maiden entry to a Grand Slam main draw — Wimbledon — and also made it to its fourth round for the first-time in his career. Not only that, he achieved his career-best singles ranking of World No.43 in the same year.
Ivashka loves to play on quicker surfaces than clay as it suits his game. The 27-year-old can operate with flat and powerful groundstrokes which gives him plenty of attacking options inside the baseline. He can strike with precision and pace off his forehand and can win points with his first serve.
The Belarusian entered the top 100 singles ranking for the first-time in 2018. He was also the first Belarusian tour-level semi-finalist since Max Mirnyi at 2005 Rotterdam. He defeated Mikael Ymer for the 2021 Winston-Salem Open title in 56 minutes to secure his first ATP title. It also made him the first player from Belarus to win an ATP Tour singles title since Max Mirnyi in 2003 at Rotterdam besides being the eighth First-Time ATP Tour Champion.
