Vondroušová has won one singles title on the WTA Tour as well as seven singles and four doubles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit. On 10 June 2019, she reached her best singles ranking of world No. 16 and is the youngest player in the top 20. On 29 April 2019, she peaked at No. 91 in the doubles rankings.
In 2015, Vondroušová won the girls' doubles event at the Australian Open with fellow Czech Miriam Kolodziejová, defeating Katharina Hobgarski and Greet Minnen in the final. In the same year, they won the girls' doubles event at the French Open, where they faced Caroline Dolehide and Katerina Stewart in the final.
Vondroušová began playing tennis aged four with her father, and by ten years old, she was practicing in Prague. She moved to Prague by herself at 15 years old to train.
2015-2016: The beginnings, injury layoffEdit
Vondroušová made her WTA Tour main-draw debut in doubles at the 2015 Sparta Prague Open, partnering Kateřina Vaňková. The pair lost their first round match against Kateryna Bondarenko and Eva Hrdinová. A year later, Vondroušová made her WTA debut in singles at the 2016 J&T Banka Prague Open, where she defeated Océane Dodin before her second-round loss to eventual tournament runner-up Samantha Stosur.
Vondroušová then played at the Roland Garros junior event, losing in the third round to Olesya Pervushina. Vondroušová did not play for the rest of the year, as she took time out to recover from an elbow injury.
2017: Return to tour, first WTA title, entering the top 100Edit
On her comeback to the tour, Vondroušova immediately reeled off 20 consecutive wins, resulting in one $15,000 title, one $25,000 title, and two more $25,000 finals. In April, she reached her debut WTA singles final at the Ladies Open Biel/Bienne, coming through qualifying and scoring wins over Annika Beck, Kristýna Plíšková, and top 20 player Barbora Strýcová. In just her second appearance in a WTA main draw, Vondroušová got past Anett Kontaveit in the final to clinch her maiden WTA title. This win propelled her close to a top-100 debut. Vondroušová became the youngest winner of a WTA title since Konjuh's title at the 2015 Nottingham Open.
Next, Vondroušova made her Fed Cup debut in the semifinals against the United States, where she lost to CoCo Vandeweghe in straight sets. In her second match, she earned her first Fed Cup win when she defeated Lauren Davis in straight sets.
2019: First Grand Slam final, top 20 debutEdit
In January, Vondroušová and partner Strýcová reached the women's doubles semifinal of the Australian Open, but were defeated by Sam Stosur and Zhang Shuai. In singles, Vondroušová defeated Evgeniya Rodina in the first round, but lost to Petra Martić in the second round. Vondroušová reached final in Budapest, defeating in her way Georgina Garcia Perez, Anna Blinkova, Irina-Camelia Begu and Anastasia Potapova. In the final, she lost to Alison Van Uytvanck. It was a close match, with Vondroušová holding multiple leads, but ultimately Van Uytvanck was able to close it out.
In March, she played very well at tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami. At Indian Wells, Vondroušová beat Laura Siegemund in the first round and then she won against the previous years runner-up Daria Kasatkina. In following rounds she took on Jelena Ostapenko and the second seed Simona Halep both in three sets on the way to quarterfinals, where she lost to Elina Svitolina. At Miami, she defeated Strýcová, Ostapenko again, Elise Mertens and Tatjana Maria in two sets on the way to quarterfinals, where she lost to another fellow-Czech Karolina Plíšková.
On April, she decided to play Fed Cup Play-off against Canada. She was successful in her both matches against Leylah Fernandez and Rebecca Marino, which helped the Czechs surviving in the world group. Vondroušová played her third WTA final in Istanbul. On the way, she defeated 5th seed Ajla Tomljanovic, former world No. 2 Svetlana Kuznetsova, Lara Arruabarrena and Barbora Strýcová again. In the final she lost to Petra Martić. It was a close match once again for Vondroušová, but she lost in three sets, in spite of winning first set 6-1.
Because of struggling a knee injury, she could not play in Prague and Madrid, nevertheless, she showed a very good performance in Rome. She met Strycova once again in the first round, where it looked like, Strýcová can conquer Vondroušová for the first time, but Vondroušová won the match in the third set tie-break. In the second round, she shocked the third seed Simona Halep and the match 7-5 in the third. She defeated Kasatkina in the third round, but in quarterfinals lost to eventual finalist Johanna Konta.
At French Open she defeated Wang Yafan, Anastasia Potapova and 28th seed Carla Suarez Navarro in straight sets. In the fourth round, she outlasted Anastasija Sevastova by losing only two games in the match. In quarterfinals, she finally defeated Petra Martić after five previous losses and in semifinals, beat Johanna Konta. She became the first teenager to make the French Open final since Ana Ivanovic in 2007 and the first teenager to reach a Grand Slam final since Caroline Wozniacki competed in the final of the 2009 US Open. In the final, she was defeated in straight sets by Ashleigh Barty.

- 1 The first Premier 5 event of the year has switched back and forth between the Dubai Tennis Championships and the Qatar Total Open since 2009. Dubai was classified as a Premier 5 event from 2009–2011 before being succeeded by Doha for the 2012–2014 period. In 2015, Dubai regained its Premier 5 status while Doha was demoted to Premier status. The two tournaments have since alternated status every year.
