Vašek was the Czechoslovakian national Under-18s tennis champion in 1990, the same year he turned professional.[2]

At the 1994 French Open he came into the draw as a qualifier but won his first two matches, against Younes El Aynaoui in straight sets and Dimitri Poliakov, from two sets down.

Vašek reached his first and only ATP Tour final in 1995, at the Jakarta Open. Also that year, Vašek made the quarterfinals of the Tel Aviv Open in Israel.
