At the Moscow ATP tournament later the same month, Andreev defeated the top seed Sjeng Schalken in straight sets, 6–3, 6–1, and made his first ATP quarterfinal appearance, eventually losing to Paul-Henri Mathieu 6–2, 3–6, 5–7. He entered the St. Petersburgmarker tournament in October 2003 as a wildcard, and defeated the number 4 seed Max Mirnyi 6–4, 7–6 (1), before losing to Sargis Sargsian in the second round.

At the French Openmarker he made the round of 16, losing to eventual champion Gastón Gaudio 6–4, 7–5, 6–3.

He won his first ATP doubles title in Moscow in October 2004 with Nikolay Davydenko, after defeating Mahesh Bhupathi and Jonas Björkman 3–6, 6–3, 6–4 in the final.

2005

Andreev's first ATP singles title came in April 2005 in Valenciamarker, Spain, which he won by beating Spaniard David Ferrer 6–3, 5–7, 6–3 in the final, after having taken out world number 4 Rafael Nadal in the quarterfinals earlier. After this point, Nadal began his record-breaking 81 match win streak on clay, which lasted for more than two years.Andreev made the third round at both the French Open and Wimbledon, and reached the quarterfinal at New Havenmarker, Connecticutmarker, United States. He then reached the final of the event at Bucharest, losing to Florent Serra 6–3, 6–4.Andreev continued his consistent performance of the year by winning the Palermomarker event in September 2005, beating Filippo Volandri of Italy 0–6, 6–1, 6–3 in the final, and the Kremlin Cup at Moscow in October, defeating Nicolas Kiefer 5–7, 7–6, 6–2 in the final.

2006

Andreev had some ups and downs in the first half of the season; despite seven first-round losses, highlights included reaching the finals at Sydney and the quarterfinals at Indian Wells, losing both matches to James Blake. A knee injury forced Andreev to sit out the second half of the clay court season, including Roland Garross.

2007



Andreev returned in 2007, and made an immediate impact with an impressive showing at the French Openmarker. Unseeded, he beat former World no.1 Andy Roddick 3–6, 6–4, 6–3, 6–4 in the first round (which was widely expected as Roddick has a poor record on clay) and in-form Marcos Baghdatis in the fourth round, to make his first Grand Slam quarter-final, which he lost in straight sets to Novak Đoković 6–3, 6–3, 6–3. However, he was disappointingly a first-round casualty at Wimbledon that year.

At Miami he was defeated by Tomáš Berdych, 6–4, 6–4. After Miami, he reached the quarterfinal of another Masters Series event in Monte Carlomarker.

2009

Heavily favored Russia was hosted by Israel in a Davis Cup quarterfinal tie in July 2009, on indoor hard courts at the Nokia Arena in Tel Avivmarker. Russia had won the Davis Cup in both 2002 and 2006, and was the top-ranked country in Davis Cup standings. Asked if hew was nervous, Andreev replied with a smile: "Nervous? Why should I be nervous? Everything is fine. Harel Levy, world # 210, then beat Andreev, world # 24, 6-4, 6-2, 4-6, 6-2 in the opening match. Dudi Sela (# 33) followed by beating Youzhny, and the next day Israelis Andy Ram and Jonathan Erlich beat Safin and doubles specialist Kunitsyn. With the tie clinched for Israel, the reverse singles rubbers were "dead", and instead of best-of-five matches, best-of-three sets were played, with the outcomes of little to no importance. Israel wrapped up a 4-1 victory over Russia, winning one match but losing one, as Dudi Sela retired with a wrist injury while down 3-4 in the first set against Andreev.Today he is playing with the formal world number one "Marat Safin" in 8 round in St.Petersburg.
