She is a three-time Grand Slam champion, having won the 2011 French Open and 2013 US Open alongside compatriot Andrea Hlavá?ková in women's doubles, as well as the 2013 French Open with Franti?ek ?ermák in mixed doubles. Hradecká also finished runner-up at the 2012 Wimbledon Championships, 2012 US Open, 2016 Australian Open and 2017 US Open in women's doubles, and the 2013 Australian Open and 2015 French Open in mixed doubles.
She reached her career-high doubles ranking of world No. 4 on 22 October 2012, and has won 26 doubles titles on the WTA Tour, including three at WTA 1000 level. Hradecká also won Olympic silver in 2012 alongside Hlavá?ková in women's doubles, and bronze in 2016 with Radek ?t?pánek in mixed doubles. She has won the Fed Cup on five occasions as part of the Czech team.
In singles, Hradecká reached her highest ranking of world No. 41 in June 2011, and has reached seven tour-level finals. Her best result at Grand Slam level was at the 2015 Australian Open, where she defeated former world No. 1 Ana Ivanovic en route to the third round.
She won her first doubles title on the WTA Tour in 2006 at Portoro? with partner Renata Vorá?ová, as the fourth-seeded team. In the final, the Czech team defeated Eva Birnerová and Émilie Loit, the second seeds, by walkover. They also had a victory over the top-seeds Maria Elena Camerin and Emmanuelle Gagliardi in the semifinal.
As qualifiers, she reached the third round of doubles competition with Hana ?romová at the 2006 Wimbledon Championships before going down to fifth seeds Meghann Shaughnessy and Anna-Lena Grönefeld. En route they defeated 12th-seeds Svetlana Kuznetsova and Amélie Mauresmo, both Grand Slam singles champions at the time and the previous year's Wimbledon doubles runner-ups by walkover.
In 2007, she made the doubles semifinals of the Indian Wells Masters tournament with Vorá?ová. En route, the team defeated Janette Husárová and Meghann Shaughnessy, the seventh seeds, in the first round, and legendary team and third-seeded Virginia Ruano Pascual and Paola Suárez in three sets in the quarterfinals, before losing to top seeds Lisa Raymond and Samantha Stosur.
Later that year, Hradecká and Vorá?ová won at Bad Gastein beating Ágnes Szávay and Vladimíra Uhlí?ová. She again won the 2007 Portoro? title with Vorá?ová, beating Elena Likhovtseva and Andreja Klepa? in the final.
Hradecká reached her very first singles final at Bad Gastein in July 2008, where, as a qualifier, she got to the final, but lost to the fourth-seed Pauline Parmentier 4-6, 4-6, after leading 4-1 in the first set. She also reached the doubles final.
At her home tournament, the 2010 ECM Prague Open, Hradecká pleased her fans with a dramatic comeback to defeat Stefanie Vögele in the first round. She came back from 1-5 down in the first set to win 7-6, 6-2. In the second round she crushed fellow double-hander Monica Niculescu, 6-2, 6-1, and reached the semifinals before losing to Ágnes Szávay. A year later at the same tournament, Hradecká was the winner, defeating qualifier Paula Ormaechea in the final.
Lucie kicked off the 2012 season at the ASB Classic in Auckland. She defeated Alberta Brianti and upset second seed Peng Shuai to book a place in the quarterfinals, where she fell to eventual champion Zheng Jie. Then, Lucie went to the Moorilla International, where she was overpowered by Shahar Pe'er in round one.
Going into the Australian Open, Hradecká crushed Evgeniya Rodina in the first round. She lost to Vera Zvonareva in the second. Next, at the Tennis Classic in Midland, she made it to the quarterfinals, where she lost to Jamie Hampton. At the Cellular South Cup in Memphis, Hradecká defeated Anna Tatishvili before falling to Lesia Tsurenko.
She then suffered two-first round defeats at the Premier Mandatory events BNP Paribas Open and the Sony Ericsson Open, falling to Zheng Jie and Irina-Camelia Begu, respectively. Then, at the Oaks Club Challenger in Osprey, Florida, she made it to the quarterfinals, with wins over Melinda Czink and Eugenie Bouchard, where she was beaten by Edina Gallovits-Hall. Next, Hradecká went on to beat Urszula Radwa?ska in the first round of the Family Circle Cup in Charleston, before losing to Stefanie Vögele.
After losing early in Estoril, Hradecká qualified for Madrid. She caused the two biggest upsets in the tournament by beating both the world No. 4, Petra Kvitová (who also was the defending champion) and the world No. 5, Samantha Stosur, on the way to her first ever semifinals appearance at the Premier level, where she lost to Serena Williams in straight sets, 6-7(5-7), 0-6 and won just six points in the second set.
Lucie and Andrea Hlavá?ková reached their second Grand Slam final at Wimbledon, losing to the Williams sisters. At the Summer Olympics in London, she and Radek ?t?pánek lost in the first round of the mixed doubles, but she and Andrea Hlavá?ková were much more successful, winning the silver medal.
Hradecká started 2015 ranked 141st in the world, and thus had to qualify for the main draw of the Australian Open, which she successfully did with three wins in the qualifying rounds. The first round saw her pitted against world No. 5 Ana Ivanovic. After losing the first set winning only one game, Hradecká would come back to win this match in three sets, marking the biggest victory of her career thus far. She would go on to reach as far as the third round defeating Polona Hercog before falling to Julia Georges as her best career showing in singles at any Grand Slam.
Only main-draw results in WTA Tour, Grand Slam tournaments, Fed Cup/Billie Jean King Cup and Olympic Games are included in win-loss records.
