Chakvetadze won eight WTA singles titles, the biggest being the 2006 Kremlin Cup.

Chakvetadze began playing tennis at the age of eight after being introduced to the sport by her mother. She hit her peak of world No. 5 in 2007 after a semifinal appearance at the 2007 US Open.

With this result, she became tied for the second fastest player to defeat a world top ten in WTA history, tying Serena Williams. She broke into the top 100 in the WTA rankings on September 13, reaching world No. 91. She reached the top 50 on 6 June 2005, coming in at world No. 44.
On 25 September 2006, Chakvetadze won her first WTA singles tournament at the Tier III event in Guangzhou, defeating Spain's Anabel Medina Garrigues in the final.

She won her second consecutive tournament the following week at the Bank of the West Classic in Palo Alto, the first tournament of the US Open Series. She defeated Sania Mirza in the final. That was her ninth consecutive match victory and resulted in her ranking rising to world No. 6. At the Acura Classic tournament in San Diego, her 12-match winning streak ended when she lost in the semifinals to top-seeded Sharapova for the third time this year 3–6, 2–6 after Chakvetadze had defeated reigning Wimbledon champion Venus Williams in the quarterfinals 6–7, 7–6, 6–2. Two weeks later at the Tier I Rogers Cup in Toronto, Chakvetadze retired from her second round match after losing the first set to Virginie Razzano.

Chakvetadze didn't play any more tournaments for the rest of the season. She ended the year ranked 222.
Chakvetadze announced her retirement from professional tennis on September 11, 2013 due to ongoing back problems. Since retiring, she has been a tennis commentator for Eurosport.
Chakvetadze was a baseline player, whose game depended upon her excellent defensive skills. Her greatest assets were her speed, court coverage, shot selection, anticipation, and footwork. Her forehand and backhand were both hit flat and with depth, although she could hit her backhand with slice as and when the situation required. She was an excellent counterpuncher, with her exemplary fitness allowed her to extend rallies until she could create an opportunity to hit a winner. Her best groundstroke shots were her forehand and backhand, both down the line. Her first serve averaged 96 mph (155 km/h), and peaked at 109 mph (175 km/h), allowing her to serve aces and dictate service points. Her second serve was reliable, averaging 81 mph (130 km/h), meaning that double faults were uncommon; she was also excellent at defending her second serve with her powerful groundstrokes. Due to her doubles experience, she was a capable volleyer, and was adept at the net, but chose to play mostly from the baseline. Chakvetadze's major weaknesses were her lack of confidence and nerves. In difficult moments, she would commit many uncharacteristic unforced errors. Due to the careful nature of her game and her excellent point construction and shot selection, she was frequently compared to Martina Hingis.
Home invasion and robberyEdit
On 18 December 2007, Chakvetadze's home was robbed. She was tied by six invaders who also beat her father, Djambuli. The six men left with over $306,000 worth of goods and cash. Chakvetadze was the target of the robbery, as the men demanded a Rolex watch she had recently won in an exhibition and told her as they left, "Keep playing. We'll come again." Seven suspects were arrested three months later.
In December 2011, Anna stood for election in the Russian State Duma with the Right Cause party, but they were not elected.
