CareerEdit

Pera has won nine singles titles and eight doubles titles on the ITF Circuit. On 2 March 2020, she reached a career-high singles ranking of world No. 59.

She made her WTA Tour debut at the 2014 US Open, having received a wildcard with Tornado Alicia Black in the doubles tournament.[4] She made her Grand Slam singles main-draw debut at the 2018 Australian Open, where she received entry as a lucky loser, after Margarita Gasparyan had withdrawn from the tournament.[5] In the second round of the same tournament, Pera knocked out ninth seed Johanna Konta.[6] In the third round, she was beaten by Barbora Strýcová.

World TeamTennisEdit

Pera wanted to make her World TeamTennis debut in 2020, joining the Washington Kastles when the WTT season should begin July 12, at The Greenbrier.[7]
