In 2011, Johansson reached her first WTA Tour final in Bogotá, losing to Lourdes Domínguez Lino in three sets.[1]

In April 2012, as a lucky loser, she reached the semifinals of the Grand Prix in Fès (Marrocco) eventually falling to Laura Pous Tio.[4] Later, in May, she reached for the first time the third round of a major tournament, the French Open, falling to Sloane Stephens.[5] In July, Johansson reached the finals of the Swedish Open losing to Polona Hercog in three sets.[6]

For one of her last tournaments in the season, Mathilde reached the quarterfinals in Guangzhou, beaten by Hsieh Su-wei in straight sets.[2] Overall in 2012, she fell in the first round ten times.
