On 28 November 2005, Kutuzova reached her highest singles ranking, world No. 76.
Kutuzova remains most notable for her results as a 14-year-old. In her debut WTA maindraw event, the Tier II event in Los Angeles 2003, Kutuzova beat top 50 player, Lina Krasnoroutskaya, in the first round, and top 30 player, Alexandra Stevenson in her next match, before losing in the third round to the then world number 12, Ai Sugiyama.
Other career highlights in WTA main draw events include, a fourth round appearance at the Tier I event at Indian Wells 2005, eventually losing to then number one, Lindsay Davenport. Kutuzova has also made the second round at three of the four grand slam events on the WTA tour.
As a junior Kutuzova reached the final of the Australian Open in 2003 losing to Barbora Záhlavová-Strýcová.
Kutuzova has experienced considerable success at an ITF level. Kutuzova has won four French ITF events. In 2008, Kutuzova won her biggest ITF title to date in Cagnes-sur-Mer. Her other titles have come in Poitiers (2005) and Deauville (2005 and 06). In 2009, she reached the final of the $100.000 ITF event in Torhout, losing to Croatia's Karolina Šprem in straight-sets.
Viktoriya has suffered some shoulder problems throughout her young career which have stalled her progression on the main WTA tour.
After having over a year off-tour, Kutuzova used her protected ranking to enter her first big event, the 2011 Sparta Prague Open, where she lost to Katarzyna Piter in round one. She also entered Roland Garros using her protected ranking, but was beaten by Chanelle Scheepers in the first round.
