In January of 2015 she began playing on the ITF Women's Circuit. After her first two $25k tournaments in the United States, she progressed to tournaments in Turkey. She first played at the $10k Antalya tournament, where she recorded her first win as a senior, defeating Turkish player Cempre Anil. She continued in the same city the following week, reaching her first final, but losing to Chinese player Lu Jiajing. That year she made her debut in the WTA rankings as world No. 1201.

After two $25k tournaments in Moscow, Kalinskaya attempted another WTA Tour debut at the Kremlin Cup, where she received a qualifying wildcard. She lost in the final stage to eventual semifinalist Daria Kasatkina of Russia. By the end of the year, she played two $10k tournaments in Port El Kantaoui, Tunisia. She reached the semifinals in the first and made it to the finals of the second, where she was forced to give a walkover to Bosnian player Ema Burgić Bucko. The result pushed her into the top 600.

Doubles

Her professional doubles career started well, winning the $25k Sunrise, Florida tournament. This result put her on the WTA rankings in doubles, making the top 700. She played four more ITF tournaments without much success.

2016: Success on the ITF Women's Circuit

Kalinskaya started the year as a top 200 player, making her debut in a major, and qualifying at the Australian Open. Her first opponent was Swiss top seed Stefanie Vögele, to whom she lost in a three-set match. She was handed a wildcard to the main draw of the St. Petersburg Ladies' Trophy, and was beaten by Australian Daria Gavrilova in the first round. In early March, at the Malaysian Open, she recorded her first tour-level main-draw win, defeating French top-30 player Caroline Garcia in straight sets.

The following week she headed to Shenzhen, where she reached semifinals, but lost to compatriot Ekaterina Alexandrova.

From April until September of 2017, Kalinskaya played in Europe. She did not succeed at ITF tournaments in France and Germany, but things got a bit better on the WTA Tour. She reached two second rounds, one at the Istanbul Cup in late April, and the Gstaad Open in July. In addition, she lost in the first qualifying round of both the French Open and Wimbledon.

After being knocked out in the first round of the US Open qualifying, she traveled to Batumi, Georgia, where she finished as runner-up in the $25k Batumi Ladies Open. However, she struggled again after reaching second round of the $100k Neva Cup in St. Petersburg, losing in the qualifying round of the Tashkent Open and the first round of the $25k Óbidos event in Portugal. Despite early loss in Óbidos, Kalinskaya remained and won again the following week, defeating Polish player Magdalena Fręch in the final. The third was promising as well, but she lost to British player Katie Swan. Without any oscillations in her WTA ranking, Kalinskaya spent the year inside the top 200. On June 12, she reached her then-career high of No. 127.

Doubles

Her doubles performances during the year were primarily on the ITF Circuit.

In the meantime, she played in the quarterfinals of the St. Petersburg Ladies' Trophy, and made her debut at the Fed Cup in doubles.

Singles

Given her ranking, Kalinskaya often switched between the ITF and the WTA Tours during the year. She began in Australia, where her first tournament was the $25k Playford International, but she lost in the first round to French player Jessika Ponchet. Then she shifted to Melbourne to play at the Australian Open qualifying. She reached the main draw for the first time in her career. Her first opponent in the main draw was Italian player Camila Giorgi, but Kalinskaya lost in two sets. During February, she failed to qualify in two WTA tournaments, the (St. Petersburg Ladies' Trophy, and the Hungarian Ladies Open). However, she made her singles debut in the Fed Cup. In Bratislava, she lost in three sets to Slovak player Magdaléna Rybáriková. For Kalinskaya, March brought good performances on the ITF Circuit. In China she first played at the $60k Zhuhai tournament, and reached the semifinals. She followed this with a final appearance at the $60k Shenzhen Open. Her last tournament in March was in France at the $60k Croissy-Beaubourg event, where she reached the semifinals.

During the next five months, still in France, she reached the semifinals of the $100k Contrexéville Open in the middle of July. Then she failed to qualify in both the French Open, and the Wimbledon.

She made the main draw of the US Open for the first time in her career. In the first round, she was defeated by the world's No. 9, German player Julia Görges, in three sets. She continued to struggle with losses to Serbian Olga Danilović in the first round of the Tashkent Open, and to Russian Natalia Vikhlyantseva at the Linz Open qualifying round. Next, she made another appearance at the Kremlin Cup as a wildcard, but was ousted by Mladenovic in a repeat of their 2016 encounter. Despite not reaching any new career-highest singles rankings, she spent all year in the top 200.

Doubles

She also switched between ITF Circuit and the WTA Tour in doubles. After a few early losses during the first two months, she won the title at the $60k Shenzhen Open alongside Slovak player Viktória Kužmová. Two weeks later she won another $60k title, this time in Croissy-Beaubourg, again with Kužmová. A month later she reached the semifinals of the Istanbul Cup, where she played with compatriot Natela Dzalamidze. At the French Open, she notched her Grand Slam debut in doubles, but lost in the first round with fellow Russian Ekaterina Makarova. Wimbledon was a disappointment after losing in the second qualifying round. She finished the year by making the semifinals of the Kremlin Cup. On 28 May 2018, she reached a new career-high of 106.

She struggled to reach the WTA Tour main draw at many tournaments, including the Premier-level St. Petersburg Ladies' Trophy, Qatar Open and Stuttgart Open.

After defeating Serbian Ivana Jorović in the first round, she lost to Rybáriková in a three-set match. Right after that she traveled to the Netherlands to play at the Rosmalen Championships. Despite losing in the first round, this was nevertheless her first WTA Tour main-draw performance of the year. Preparing for the Wimbledon, she played at the Birmingham Classic, but was stopped in the final qualifying stage. She hired the Argentinian Patricia Tarabini to be her coach. Still looking for her first Grand Slam win, she held out some hope for Wimbledon, given that she had qualified after three straight-sets wins. She failed to achieve it, however, after losing to Polish player Magda Linette in the first round.

During August, Kalinskaya showed an impressive North American hardcourt swing, reaching the semifinals of a WTA Tour event for the first time in her career at the Washington Open. She survived the qualifying rounds, before making a huge comeback against reigning Puerto Rican Olympic champion Monica Puig, and stunning Mladenovic for her first win over the Frenchwoman in three attempts.

Her season began with the Australian Open, where she qualified for the main draw after saving match points to beat China's Wang Xinyu in the final qualifying round. In the first round of the main draw, she faced unseeded Chinese player Zheng Saisai, but she did not prevail.
