In December 2016, Wu reached the final of the 2016 Orange Bowl, a Grade A junior event, losing to Miomir Kecmanović in the final.

Wu represented China at the 2017 Davis Cup, where he has a W/L record of 1–0. He defeated Jason Jung in his first Davis Cup match.

In 2017, Wu reached semi-finals in both boys' singles and doubles at the Australian Open, and won both the boys' singles and doubles champions (with Taiwan's Hsu Yu-hsiou) at the US Open, thus became the first Chinese male to win a Grand Slam title.[4]

In October 2018 Wu won the first set against Kei Nishikori at Shanghai Masters.[5]
