Schmiedlová qualified for her first Grand Slam tournament at the French Open. After Wimbledon, she reached the final of the $100,000 tournament in Biarritz, and lost to Stephanie Vogt in three sets. She reached the top 100 for the first time with a ranking of world No. 97.
In May, Schmiedlová won the Empire Slovak Open in Trnava. She defeated the defending champion Barbora Záhlavová-Strýcová in the final. The following week, she reached the final of the Sparta Prague Open, losing to Britain's Heather Watson in straight sets.
At the French Open, Schmiedlová defeated Zheng Jie in the first round and surprised the former world No. 1 Venus Williams with a victory in three sets in round two. In the third round, she lost to Garbiñe Muguruza in straight sets.
In February, she reached her first WTA final at the Rio Open, losing to Sara Errani in straight sets. In April, she won her first WTA title at the Katowice Open, where she defeated Camila Giorgi in the final. She won her second WTA title at the Bucharest Open, where she defeated Errani in the final.
At the Wuhan Open in September, Schmiedlová scored her first top-10 victory, and hence the biggest win of her career, by coming upsetting former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki in three sets in the second round.
2016: Major slump, out of the top 100Edit
Schmiedlová went on a losing streak of 16 WTA Tour-level matches.
2018: Third WTA titleEdit
The Slovakian, ranked 132 in the world before this win in Bogotá, beat Lara Arruabarrena 6-2, 6-4. It was her first title since 2015 and resulted in her return to the top 100.
