Dushevina began playing tennis at the age of seven under her father, Yevgeny, an engineer. Her mother, Elena is a teacher.

Dushevina reached her first Women's Tennis Association singles final in 2005, at the International Women's Open in Eastbourne, England, where she finished runner-up to former World No. 1 Kim Clijsters. Two years later, she reached her second final at the Nordea Nordic Light Open, losing in straight sets to Agnieszka Radwańska. Dushevina reached the final of the Stockholm event again in 2007, losing to Caroline Wozniacki. Dushevina has won one doubles title, the Warsaw Open, playing with Tatiana Perebiynis in 2007.
