CareerEdit

2014Edit

In 2013, Tomic mainly played on the junior circuit. She was given wildcards into the 2014 Apia International Sydney, 2014 Australian Open and 2014 McDonald's Burnie International where she lost in first rounds. In the junior events she won a Grade 4 event in Kawana and a Grade B2 event in Lautoka, Fiji. She was also runners-up in a Grade 3 in Beijing and a Grade 4 in Burleigh Waters. She won two doubles titles partnering Xu Shilin including the Grade A Osaka Mayor's Cup and a Grade B1 in Seogwipo.

2015Edit

In 2015, Tomic had received wildcards into the 2015 Apia International Sydney losing to Alexandra Dulgheru in the first round. She was then awarded another qualifying and doubles wildcard into the 2015 Australian Open where she lost to Ekaterina Bychkova in three sets in the first round. In the doubles event she partnered Naiktha Bains where they lost to Anastasia Rodionova and Arina Rodionova in the first round. At the junior Australian Open, Tomic reached the third round where she lost to eventual champion Tereza Mihalíková and she also reached the semifinals of the doubles event partnering Xu Shilin.

Tomic then decided to focus on the pro circuit instead, winning her first title at $10,000 Sharm el-Sheikh in July and boosting her ranking into the 500s.
