At the 2010 Australian Open, Levinsky reached the mixed doubles final alongside Russian WTA player Ekaterina Makarova, where they were defeated by the pairing of Cara Black and Leander Paes in straight sets 5–7, 3–6.[1]

The last matches he played were at the 2014 US Open where he lost in the first round of both the men's doubles and mixed doubles draws.
