He was a quarter-finalist at the Australian Open in 1991, and at the US Open in 1994, reaching the final eight by defeating in back-to-back matches finalists of the previous edition: Cédric Pioline and Pete Sampras in 5 sets. Yzaga came back from a 2-sets-to-0 deficit against Pioline and 2-sets-to-1 against Sampras, in both those matches he won fewer points. At 5' 7", he was the shortest Grand Slam tournament quarterfinalist until Diego Schwartzman, also 5' 7", at the 2017 U.S. Open.
