CareerEdit

2016: Grand Slam Debut and first WTA SemifinalEdit

In May, she won her first ITF tournament of the year in Grado by defeating Susanne Celik in the final. In July, she qualified for the Bank of the West Classic. She won her first round match against Asia Muhammad before losing to Alison Riske in three sets in the second round. At her next tournament at Brasil Tennis Cup, she reached her first WTA Tour semi-final, defeating former world number 1, Jelena Jankovic along the way.[1] At the US Open she made it out of qualifying and defeated her countrywoman, Sorana Cirstea, in the first round. This was her first main draw grand slam match win. In the second round, she lost to countrywoman Monica Niculescu in straight sets.

2017: Second WTA SemifinalEdit

At the Australian Open, Bogdan reached the main draw through qualifying, but was defeated in straight sets in the first round by Elena Vesnina. She also took part in the main draw of the French Open and Wimbledon for the first time in her career, winning her first-round match at Wimbledon against Duan Yingying in straight sets. At the US Open, Bogdan reached the second round of the main draw, matching her result from 2016, but was defeated in three sets by Monica Niculescu.

2018: Top 100Edit

The Australian Open saw Bogdan reach her best career result at a Grand Slam, reaching the third round, upsetting 11th-seeded Kristina Mladenovic in straight sets in her first round match. This tournament's results brought her ranking into the Top 100 for the first time in her career, placing her at World No. 89 in Singles.[2] Bogdan then made the semifinals at both Monterrey (falling to Garbiñe Muguruza) and Bogotá. These results propelled her ranking into the Top 70.
