She was born in the Czech Republic, but moved to Florida with her parents shortly after her birth.[1] Her older sister Jane played tennis, and Melichar claims to have taken up the sport aged just one year old.[1]

She has won four doubles titles on the WTA Tour and one WTA 125K series doubles title as well as two singles and seven doubles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit. In September 2012, she reached her best singles ranking of world No. 400. In February 2019, she peaked at No. 12 in the doubles rankings.

Melichar, who also is working as a coach for Madison Brengle, won the mixed-doubles title at the 2018 Wimbledon Championships with Austrian partner Alexander Peya.
