Smitková has won one singles WTA 125K series title as well as seven singles and seven doubles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit. On 6 April 2015, she reached her best singles ranking of world No. 57. On 19 May 2014, she peaked at No. 184 in the WTA doubles rankings.

In June 2013, Smitková made her WTA Tour main-draw debut at the Nürnberger Versicherungscup.[1] After coming through all three qualifying rounds,[2] she lost to Julia Cohen in round one. A year later, she reached the third round of qualifying at the 2014 French Open, defeating 17th seed Victoria Duval in the first round and former top-20 player Anabel Medina Garrigues in the second.[3] She lost in the third round of qualifying to fifth seed Danka Kovinić.

In the qualifying tournament for Wimbledon in June 2014, Smitková again reached the third round,[4] this time defeating Madison Brengle in three sets to seal her maiden Grand Slam main-draw appearance. In the main draw, she defeated Hsieh Su-wei in the first round before upsetting grass-court specialist CoCo Vandeweghe, who was ranked world No. 51 and had won the Rosmalen Grass Court Championships the week before, in round two. In the third round, she defeated Bojana Jovanovski, in a match where Jovanovski served for the match twice and had held a match point on Smitková's serve.[5] Her run was over in round four, after losing to fellow Czech Lucie Šafářová in straight sets.[6]
