Schwank in his final year on the junior circuit in 2004 had a record of 39–4 winning 5 tournaments, with his biggest title winning the Banana Bowl defeating Pablo Andújar in the final. Schwank finished No. 2 in the rankings behind Gaël Monfils.
In 2007 he won a challenger title in Medellín, defeating Chris Guccione in the final, as well as three consecutive futures events. He also won the bronze medal in singles and the gold medal in men's doubles at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro. At the 2007 United States Open qualifying singles, he defeated Mischa Zverev and Richard Bloomfield before falling to Alexander Waske.
In April 2008, Schwank won two consecutive challenger events, the first in Cremona, Italy and the second in Rome, Italy. On May 12, 2008, a hotel in which Schwank was staying while competing in a challenger event in Bordeaux, France caught fire. Schwank's room was engulfed by the blaze, which destroyed his laptop, passport, as well as the prize money he had earned from the Rome challenger tournament. Schwank was not in his room at the time. He ended up winning the tournament, making that his third consecutive challenger title for the year.
He is currently involved in a legal battle after reportedly being accused of responsibility for the blaze by leaving an oven switched on in his room. He has denied the charges, stating "We have a lawyer managing all of this. I spent that whole day in the police station'.
At the 2008 2008 French Open, Schwank was top seed in the qualifying rounds. He defeated Björn Rehnquist, Vladimir Ignatik and Ilija Bozoljac in the first, second and third qualifying rounds respectively to qualify for the main draw of the tournament. In the first round, Schwank defeated Carlos Moyà. He was also victorious in his next match, but was defeated in the third by frenchman Paul-Henri Mathieu in four sets.
In 2012, Schwank qualified for the French Open and advanced to the third round, where he played Rafael Nadal. He also teamed with Gisela Dulko in mixed doubles, and they beat Serena Williams and Bob Bryan in the first round. Schwank partnering J.Chela, reached third round of Wimbledon 2012 Doubles and lost to D.Bracciali/J.Knowle, 5-7, 5-7, 1-6.
