Fręch started her 2018 season in Auckland where she lost in qualifying (in the first round) to Sachia Vickery in straight sets. She then took part at the first Grand Slam qualifying in her career - at the Australian Open. She beat Miyu Kato (6–4, 6–3), Sofya Zhuk (6–3, 4–6, 6–2) and Kayla Day (6–3, 6–0), and she became one of the twelve qualifiers, making her main-draw debut at the grand slams. In the first round, she lost to eventual quarterfinalist Carla Suarez Navarro in straight sets. At the end of January, Fręch started in $60k Andrézieux-Bouthéon where defeated Conny Perrin (6–2, 5–7, 7–6), Chloé Paquet (6–3, 6–4) and Vitalia Diatchenko (6–3, 2–2 ret.). In the semifinal, she lost to eventual champion Georgina García Pérez in three sets. In February, she started at Hungarian Ladies Open where she came through the qualifying competition by defeating Çağla Büyükakçay in three, and Anna Blinkova in straight sets.

National representationEdit

In 2016, Fręch made her debut at the Fed Cup, playing for Poland. Her first match was in a World Group II Play-off where Poland played against Chinese Taipei. Frech was chosen to play her first match against Lee Ya-hsuan, where she also made her first Fed Cup win. In the next match, Frech lost against Hsu Ching-wen.

In 2018, from 7 to 10 February, she played at Fed Cup in Tallinn where she lost to Melanie Klaffner (Austria) in straight sets, Anastasija Sevastova (Latvia) in straight sets and she defeated Ayla Aksu (Turkey) and Isabella Shinikova (Bulgaria) - both in straight sets.
