He made his first main draw Grand Slam appearance at the 2010 Wimbledon Championships where he lost in five sets to seeded Romanian Victor Hănescu. He defeated the 11th seed of the 2013 Australian Open, Juan Mónaco in straight sets in the first round to reach the second round of a grand slam for the first time.
At Wimbledon in 2014, Kuznetsov recorded his first win over a player ranked inside the world's top ten by defeating seventh seed David Ferrer in five sets. The win also took Kuznetsov to the third round of a grand slam for the first time.
Kuznetsov is an aggressive baseliner. His best shot is the two handed backhand; he likes to hit it very hard and especially cross-court. On the other hand his main weakness is the forehand, which is not a constant weapon.
