She made her WTA Tour main-draw debut at the 2021 MUSC Health Open in Charleston, having made it through qualifying as an alternate. She lost to top seed Ons Jabeur in the second round.

In her first-round match at the 2021 US Open, she tied the record by Venus Williams for the fastest serve by a woman[2] that the tournament had ever recorded (129 mph).

In 2022, she made her sixth career main-draw appearance advancing to the second round of the German Open in Berlin as a qualifier. As a result she climbed to a career-high, up 34 spots from 169 to No. 135 on 20 June 2022.[3]

NotesEdit

  1. ^ The first Premier 5 event of the year has switched back and forth between the Dubai Tennis Championships and the Qatar Open since 2009. Dubai was classified as a Premier 5 event from 2009–2011 before being succeeded by Doha for the 2012–2014 period. In 2015, Dubai regained its Premier 5 status while Doha was demoted to Premier status. The Premier 5 tournaments were reclassified as WTA 1000 tournaments in 2021.
