Her career-high junior ranking was No. 6 and as a 15-year-old, she reached the quarterfinals of the junior girls' singles event and the final of the girls' doubles event at the 2016 Australian Open. She followed that up by reaching the final of the girls' singles at Wimbledon, losing to Anastasia Potapova of Russia in straight sets.
In 2016, after winning her first ITF title in Brazil, Yastremska made her WTA main-draw debut at the İstanbul Cup, where she received a singles wild card. However, she lost a close first-round match against sixth seed Nao Hibino.
In 2017, Yastremska won her first career WTA match at the İstanbul Cup, where she beat the eighth seed Andrea Petkovic in three sets. She then on went on to win her second-round match against Anna Kalinskaya, but lost her quarterfinal against Jana Čepelová in three sets after leading in the second set and serving for the match. Later in the season, she and Potapova teamed up to win their first ITF doubles title together in Prague. She followed that up with her most important win yet in the ITF tournament in Dunakeszi, Hungary, before finishing runner-up to Belinda Bencic in the Neva Cup in Saint Petersburg.
In 2018, Yastremska made her senior Grand Slam debut in the qualifying rounds of the Australian Open, where she won her first match against 17th seed Misaki Doi, but was knocked out in the second round by Alexandra Dulgheru in straight sets. She then qualified for the main draw in Acapulco, but injured her ankle during her first round match against Monica Puig, forcing her to retire.
Her next significant tournament was in Cagnes-sur-Mer, France in May. She had to qualify for the main draw and went all the way to the final, where she lost in straight sets to Rebecca Peterson. She also reached the singles final in the equivalent tournament in Ilkley, Yorkshire, going down in three sets to qualifier Tereza Smitková. Yastremska was serving for the first set but couldn't hold on, with the set eventually going to a tie-break. Although she won the second set, the third also went to a tie-break after both players dropped serve twice. After being down, Smitková was able to force Yastremska into errors as she won four consecutive points to take the match.
The following week, Yastremska was in Roehampton, attempting to qualify for Wimbledon. She beat Magdalena Fręch in the first round of qualifying, but was then beaten in the second round by Barbara Haas.
