Dodin has a career-high WTA singles ranking of world No. 46, attained on 12 June 2017. She has won one singles title on the WTA Tour – the 2016 Coupe Banque Nationale. In addition, Dodin has won eight singles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit.
Dodin played only the singles events of four tournaments on the 2011 ITF Women's Circuit, starting with a $10,000 tournament held in early July in the Spanish city of Valladolid. In 2012, she played only the singles events of twelve ITF Women's Circuit tournaments.
Dodin played only the singles events of eleven tournaments on the ITF Women's Circuit. In late April, she reached her first career ITF Women's Circuit singles final at the $10,000 tournament in Les Franqueses del Vallès; in the final she defeated Tess Sugnaux. Dodin made her WTA Tour singles debut at the French Open, where as a wildcard she lost in the singles qualifying first round to Teliana Pereira.
Dodin reached the singles final of six ITF Women's Circuit tournaments (including the $100,000 Internationaux Féminins de la Vienne), winning four of them. She reached the semifinals of the Open GDF Suez de Limoges (her first ever appearance in a WTA 125K series tournament), where she lost to Kristina Mladenovic. Dodin lost in the singles qualifying first round of the BGL Luxembourg Open to Ivana Jorović, the only WTA Tour tournament that she played in 2014.
Dodin made her first career appearance in the singles main draw of a WTA Tour and Grand Slam event at the Australian Open after she was selected by the Fédération Française de Tennis to receive a wildcard. She defeated Alison Riske in the first-round match before losing to the No. 22 seed Karolína Plíšková in three sets in the second round.Dodin made her French Open singles main draw debut thanks to a wildcard, losing in the first round to the unseeded Kurumi Nara in three sets. As a wildcard, Dodin defeated the No. 21 seed, Jelena Janković, in the first round of the US Open before losing to Mariana Duque Mariño in the second round.
In October, Dodin entered the main draw of a WTA tournament for the sixth and final time in 2015 at the Luxembourg Open; she was defeated in the third qualifying round by Jana Čepelová but entered the main draw as a lucky loser, where she lost in the first round to the American qualifier Anna Tatishvili. Dodin had also suffered first-round exits in the singles tournaments in Strasbourg and Rosmalen held earlier in the year.
2016: First WTA Tour singles title, entered top 100Edit
In April, Dodin qualified for the main draw of two WTA clay-court tournaments in Europe, where she lost in the first round to Carla Suárez Navarro and Markéta Vondroušová in Stuttgart and Prague respectively.
Dodin won her maiden singles title on the WTA Tour – the Coupe Banque Nationale in Quebec City – by defeating Lauren Davis in the final. Coming into the tournament, Dodin was ranked 132nd in the WTA singles rankings and had never won a WTA Tour main draw singles match in her career other than the two first-round victories at the 2015 Australian Open and the 2015 US Open. On September 19, one day after her Quebec tournament victory, she broke into the top 100 of the WTA singles rankings for the first time in her career, attaining a career-high ranking of world No. 93. At the WTA tournament held in October in Linz, Dodin won three qualifying matches to reach the main draw, where she was defeated in the quarterfinals by the No. 3 seed Madison Keys. The following week, Dodin was beaten in the main draw first round by the Czech qualifier Kristýna Plíšková at the WTA International tournament in Luxembourg.
2017: First win over a top-10 playerEdit
Dodin started the year with first-round losses in the qualifying draw to Aleksandra Krunić in Brisbane and Irina Falconi in Sydney. She then entered the main draw of the Australian Open, beating Çağla Büyükakçay, before falling to the 21st seed and fellow Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia in the second round. Dodin then entered the qualifying draw of the Qatar Total Open, falling to Evgeniya Rodina in her first match. At the Hungarian Ladies Open, Dodin reached the quarterfinals, which was her best result to date in 2017; she defeated Dalma Gálfi in the first round and Tamara Korpatsch in the second round, both in straight sets, before losing in the quarterfinals to eventual champion Tímea Babos.
Dodin lost both her first-round matches in the main draw to Pauline Parmentier (both in straight sets) at the Indian Wells and Miami Premier Mandatory tournaments. This was followed by another main draw first round exit, this time to Magdaléna Rybáriková, at the $60,000 ITF tournament in Croissy-Beauborg, marking a four-match losing streak. Dodin ended her four-match losing streak at the Ladies Open Biel Bienne, where she defeated Hsieh Su-wei in the first round of the main draw before losing to Julia Görges in straight sets in the second round.
Dodin was eliminated in the qualifying event at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix held at the start of the European clay-court season in the last week of April; she won her first-round match against Katarzyna Piter before losing to Tamara Korpatsch in her second-round match during which she held match points. In the main draw of the WTA Tour tournament in Prague, Dodin defeated Annika Beck in the first round before falling victim to eventual champion Mona Barthel in the second round. At the Mutua Madrid Open, she won two qualifying matches to qualify for the main draw. In the Madrid Open singles main draw, she beat Andrea Petkovic in the first round and world No. 5 Dominika Cibulková in the second round before losing to Kristina Mladenovic in the third round. Dodin's win over Cibulková was her first career win over a player ranked in the top 10 of the WTA singles rankings and coming into the Madrid Open tournament she had defeated only two players (Jelena Janković at the 2015 US Open and Alison Riske at the 2015 Australian Open) ranked in the top 50 in her career. Dodin reached the second round of the French Open for the first time, where she lost narrowly in three sets to the No. 8 seed Svetlana Kuznetsova. On June 12, one day after the conclusion of the French Open, she reached a career-high ranking of 46. Dodin made her Wimbledon main-draw singles debut, losing in the first round to the No. 32 seed Lucie Šafářová 2–6, 2–6. She made her doubles debut at the Wimbledon, partnering Tatjana Maria; they won their first-round match before losing to second-seeded Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina 4–6, 3–6. Before then, Dodin had played only one doubles event on the circuit, a $10,000 tournament in the Turkish city of Antalya in May 2014; in that tournament she and her partner withdrew from their quarterfinal match after winning in the first round.
Dodin, seeded No. 5, lost in semifinals of the Citi Open to the No. 7 seed Ekaterina Makarova in three sets, after having saved three match points in her second round match against Sara Errani. She lost in the first round of her next two singles events, the Premier-5 tournaments in Toronto and Cincinnati. She defeated her countrywoman Pauline Parmentier in the first round before losing to ninth-seeded Venus Williams in the second round of the US Open. At the Coupe Banque Nationale, Dodin was the defending champion and seeded No. 2; she won her first-round match against qualifier Gabriela Dabrowski but had to withdraw from her second-round match against another qualifier, Caroline Dolehide, due to dizziness. That was Dodin's last international circuit tournament of 2017.
At the Australian Open, she lost to the unseeded Eugenie Bouchard 3–6, 6–7 in the first round. In her next two tournaments, Dodin was defeated in the second round (by Vera Lapko) and first round (by Kristína Kučová) of the qualifying draw in St. Petersburg and Doha respectively. In her next tournament in Budapest, she lost in the first round to Alison Van Uytvanck. In the second and final-round qualifying match against Alison Riske at the Miami Open in March, Dodin lost the first set 1-6 and was forced to retire at the start of the second set. She was heading to the airport when she was offered to enter the main draw as a lucky loser, which she accepted. Dodin finally won her first WTA main-draw singles match of the year (in her fifth tournament of 2018) when she defeated the unseeded Verónica Cepede Royg 6–4, 6–7, 6–3. In the second-round match against the top seed and reigning world No. 1 Simona Halep, Dodin was leading by a break at 4–2 in the final set but Halep won the match 3–6, 6–3, 7–5.
Dodin registered a singles match record of two wins and five losses in her next five WTA/ITF tournaments, all of them played on clay courts in Europe - Lugano, Stuttgart, Prague, Cagnes-sur-Mer and Saint-Gaudens. She received a wildcard for the main draw of the French Open, where she lost in the first round to the unseeded Heather Watson 3–6, 0–6. Dodin won three qualifying matches (including a win over top-seeded Camila Giorgi in the second round) to reach the main draw in Birmingham (her first grass-court tournament of the year), where she lost in the first round to Ashleigh Barty 4–6, 3–6. Dodin had to enter the singles qualifying event for her next tournament (Wimbledon) because of her low singles ranking; she was defeated in the second qualifying round there 6–3, 1–6, 8–6 by Mona Barthel. On 11 July, Dodin was forced to retire because of health problems from her opening match against her compatriot Amandine Hesse at the tournament in Contrexéville. On 6 August, her WTA singles ranking fell to world No. 231.
In the first half of April, Dodin entered the singles main draw of the $25,000 ITF tournament in Sunderland, where she lost in the quarterfinals to Tara Moore; that was Dodin's first international circuit tournament since the July 2018 Contrexéville tournament.
