Career

Ponchet did not play any ITF junior tournaments, plunging straight into the ITF Women's Circuit at the age of 14.[1]

2011-2013

Ponchet played the singles events of four tournaments and the doubles event of one tournament on the 2011 ITF Women's Circuit, starting with a $100,000 tournament held in early July in the French city of Biarritz. She played a total of eleven and eighteen ITF tournaments in 2012 and 2013 respectively.[2]

2014-2015

Ponchet played a total of 17 ITF tournaments in 2014. She suffered a major setback when torn knee ligaments forced her to miss tournaments in the first eight months of 2015. She played the singles events of seven tournaments and the doubles event of one tournament on the 2015 ITF Women's Circuit.[1][2]

2016

Ponchet played a total of 22 ITF tournaments in 2016.[2]

2017

Ponchet made her Grand Slam and WTA Tour singles debut at the French Open after receiving a singles qualifying wild card; in the qualifying event, she defeated Dalma Gálfi (the 2015 ITF World Champion in the girls' combined category) in the first round before losing to the No. 4 seed Richèl Hogenkamp in the second round.[2][3]

Ponchet made her WTA 125K series debut at the Open de Limoges, entering only its singles event. She received a wild card for the main draw, where she defeated her compatriot Chloé Paquet in the first round and lost to the No. 7 seed Kaia Kanepi in the second round.[2][3]

Ponchet finished 2017 with a final win/loss record of 42-24 for singles matches.[1]

2018

Ponchet made her Grand Slam and WTA Tour singles main-draw debut at the Australian Open after receiving a wild card for the main draw,[4] where she lost in the first round to the No. 3 seed Garbiñe Muguruza. Prior to the Australian Open, Ponchet had in her entire career played in the singles main-draw event of just one tournament that was at a higher level than the ITF Women's Circuit (the 2017 Open de Limoges) and had never even faced a player ranked in the top 100 of WTA singles rankings.[5]

Ponchet made French Open singles main-draw debut after receiving a wild card for the main draw, where she lost in the first round to the unseeded Lucie ?afá?ová in straight sets.

2019

At the Australian Open, Ponchet reached the singles main draw where she lost in the first round to 19th-seeded Caroline Garcia, after winning all her three qualifying matches without dropping a set.

On 9 April, in her first-round match of the $25,000 ITF tournament in Sunderland, Ponchet was leading Tara Moore 6-0, 5-0 and had a match point to achieve a double bagel, but Moore staged a comeback to win 0-6, 7-6, 6-3.[6]
