Professional careerEdit

2014–2016Edit

After three years without stepping on a tennis court for personal reasons, Georgina returns to the circuit. Only a few months after her re-debut, she achieved her first professional titles. During 2015, she achieved two ITF titles, in Monzón and in Portugal.

García added another three ITF titles, plus four more titles in the doubles circuit, which lead her to debut in the WTA Tour at the 2016 Copa Colsanitas, partnering Laura Pous Tió,[2] but they lost her first-round match against Nicole Melichar and Rebecca Peterson.[2]

2017Edit

In 2017, she premiered on Grand Slam-level competing in qualifying draw at Wimbledon, falling in three sets to the American Sachia Vickery. A wrist injury prevented her from being active during the summer of 2017. At the end of the season, Georgina returned to the courts with the intention of adding the points needed to play the preview of the Australian Open and she was only one week away to be able to enter when winning the Pune tournament.

2018Edit

Georgina started the season in the $60,000 tournament of Adrezieux, France, where she won the most important title of her career so far, defeating in the final the former top 100 Arantxa Rus by a score of 6–2, 6–0. The week after that title, García was summoned by the new captain Anabel Medina for the first time in her career to play a tie in Fed Cup. It would be against Italy on February 10 and 11, where she played the doubles match, winning the Italian pair with María José Martínez Sánchez.

After overcoming the previous phase in the WTA event in Budapest, going up two matches against Naomi Broady and the vetaranissimo ex top 10 Patty Schnyder, García played her first final table of a WTA-level tournament where she fell to Aleksandra Krunic in two sets. In the second match of qualifying, Georgina produced a serve of 220 km/h, which is the fastest service in the history of women's tennis, however, has yet to be verified by the WTA. In the same tournament, in the modality of doubles, García managed to win her first WTA title with her partner, the local player Fanny Stollár. They won in a tough match, with a comeback included, in the super-tiebreak at number one of the draw, the pair formed by Johanna Larsson and Kirsten Flipkens. In May, she returned to play another final with Fanny Stollár falling in the final of the Rabat tournament against Anna Blinkova and Raluca Olaru.

After the good start of the season, Georgina received a wild card to play for the first time in the main draw of the Madrid Open. She lost her first-round match to Donna Vekić in two straight sets.

In June, she managed to overcome the previous phase of 2018 French Open and achieved her first victory in a Grand Slam tournament by defeating Dalila Jakupović. This victory led her to contest the second round against the favorite No. 2 and winner this year of the Australian Open, Caroline Wozniacki.

In July, García could not play the singles preview at Wimbledon for very few, but she did it in the doubles along with her Hungarian partner Fanny Stollár. With it, they achieved the first victory in a final table of doubles competition in a Great Slam tournament, defeating Mandy Minella and Anastasija Sevastova. They would lose in the second round to the eventual finalists of Wimbledon, the American Nicole Melichar and the Czech Květa Peschke.

In August, she made her first appearance at the US Open; she reached the final round in the qualifying stage but could not overcome Marie Bouzková.
