A former junior Us Open finalist, Caroline Garcia made WTA and Grand Slam main draw debut at 2011 Australian Open, advancing to the second round. She won maiden singles title at 2014 Bogotá (d. Jankovic in F) and won the doubles (w/Arruabarrena), resulting the first player to win singles and doubles at same event since S.Williams at 2012 Olympics.

In 2015 Garcia reached her only finals in consecutive weeks, in Acapulco and Monterrey (l. Bacsinszky in both), and played the WTA Finals Rising Stars Invitational where she also qualified in doubles (w/Srebotnik – lost in RR stage).

She posted a third successive Top 40 season in 2016, as she won two WTA singles titles in Strasbourg (d. Lucic‐Baroni in F) and Mallorca (d. Sevastova in F) and reached the first Premier‐level SF of her career in Dubai (l. eventual finalist Strycova). Member of the French Fed Cup Team that advanced to 2016 final against Czech Republic, she went 2‐0 in singles, posting wins over Ka.Pliskova and Kvitova, although the Czechs won the tie 3‐2.

In 2017 she played the maiden Grand Slam quarterfinal at Roland Garros. She then became the first player to win back-to-back titles in Wuhan and Beijing, the first Premier-5 and Premier-Mandatory triumphs of her career. As a consequence, she became the first Frenchwoman to qualify for WTA Finals in 11 years, after Mauresmo in 2006.
