In February 2006, she won seven successive matches to come through qualifying and reached the semifinals of the $10k event at Portimão, Portugal, and in May 2006, she reached her first $10k final at Kiev, Ukraine. In 2007, she reached the semifinals at Stockholm-Salk ($25k level); Monzón, Spain ($75k level); Moscow ($25k level); and Podolsk, Russia ($25k level). In September 2007, she made it to the finals at the $100k tournament inn Kharkiv, Ukraine.
In 2008, she qualified for her third career WTA Tour main draw at Pattaya, defeated fifth-seeded Angelique Kerber of Germany with the loss of only three games, and reached her first WTA Tour quarterfinals.
In July 2012, she won her second career title in Donetsk.
Dolonc began her season at the Brisbane International. She lost in the first round of qualifying to María José Martínez Sánchez. Despite qualifying for the Australian Open, Dolonc was defeated in the second round by eleventh seed Marion Bartoli.
In Paris at the Open GdF Suez, Dolonc lost in the final round of qualifying to Monica Niculescu. During the Fed Cup tie versus Slovakia, Dolonc won her first rubber when Dominika Cibulková retired due to a leg muscle strain. In her second rubber, she was defeated by Daniela Hantuchová. Slovakia ended up winning the tie 3-2.
Dolonc announced her retirement from pro circuit on 14 February 2017 (her last match she played in November 2016).

- 1 The first Premier 5 event of the year has switched back and forth between the Dubai Tennis Championships and the Qatar Open since 2009. The Dubai Championships were classified as a Premier 5 event from 2009–2011 before being succeeded by the Qatar Open for the 2012–2014 period. In 2015, the Dubai Championships regained its Premier 5 status while the Qatar Open was demoted to Premier status. The two tournaments have since alternated status every year.
- 2 WTA Tier I held until 2008 (8, 9 or 10 tournaments per year), after this split up between Premier Mandatory (4 per year) and Premier 5 tournaments (5 per year)
