French Open
which she lost in two sets to Timea Bacsinszky. She reached her career-high ranking of #41 later that year, in October. However, a growth on her right ankle resulted in her missing a number of tournaments in the 2016 clay court season, including the 2016 French Open, and her failure to defend her quarterfinalist points from 2015 caused her to fall out of the top 100 in June 2016.[6] WTA career finals[edit] Singles: 2 (2 titles)[edit]
