Carreno Busta played well in the Juniors, and reached high among the ranks, with his highest rank at No. 6 in the junior world rankings. He achieved this rank in February 2009. A few years after, he turned pro.
His first appearance playing at an ATP tour was at an event in Barcelona in 2011. Unfortunately, he lost in the first round against Benoit Paire. He has done well, reaching 18 singles finals while competing in the ITF Futures tournaments. Eleven of these finals he was able to win. He also has two challenger titles to his name.
Unfortunately, in 2012, he sat out most of the season due to bouts of injuries and even underwent surgery later during the year. While he did come back to play during the end part of the year, he had spent five months recovering and was taking it easy.
Carreno Busta had a strong start in 2013, and was on a streak winning 42 out of 43 matches while playing on the ITF Circuit. It was in 2016, however, that Carreno Busta had his breakthrough performance and was able to win his first ever ATP singles title. A year later, he showed great performance and enjoyed strong Grand Slam results. This led to him reaching the Top 10 in ranks, as well as making his ATP Finals debut.
