Océane Dodin (French pronunciation: ​[?sean d?d]; born 24 October 1996) is a French professional tennis player.

She has a career-high WTA singles ranking of world No. 46, attained on 12 June 2017. Dodin has won one singles title on the WTA Tour - the 2016 Coupe Banque Nationale. In addition, she has won eleven singles titles on the ITF Circuit.



Dodin played only the singles events of four tournaments on the 2011 ITF Women's Circuit, starting with a $10k tournament held in early July in the Spanish city of Valladolid.[1] In 2012, she played only the singles events of 12 ITF Circuit tournaments.[1]


Dodin played only the singles events of eleven tournaments on the ITF Circuit.[1] In late April, she reached her first career ITF Circuit singles final at the $10K tournament in Les Franqueses del Vallès, defeating Tess Sugnaux in the final. Dodin made her WTA Tour singles debut at the French Open, where as a wildcard she lost in the singles qualifying first round to Teliana Pereira.


Dodin reached the singles final of six ITF tournaments (including the $100k Internationaux de la Vienne), winning four of them. She lost in the semifinals of the Open de Limoges (her first ever appearance in a WTA Challenger tournament) to Kristina Mladenovic. Dodin lost in the singles qualifying first round of the Luxembourg Open to Ivana Jorovi?, the only WTA Tour tournament that she played in 2014.


Dodin made her first appearance in the singles main draw of a Grand Slam event at the Australian Open after she was selected by the Fédération Française de Tennis to receive a wildcard. She defeated Alison Riske in the first-round match before losing to the No. 22 seed, Karolína Plí?ková, in three sets in the second round.[2] Dodin made her French Open main-draw debut thanks to a wildcard, losing in the first round to the unseeded Kurumi Nara in three sets. As a wildcard, Dodin defeated the No. 21 seed, Jelena Jankovi?, in the first round of the US Open before losing to Mariana Duque Mariño.

In October, Dodin entered the main draw of a WTA Tour tournament for the sixth and final time in 2015 at the Luxembourg Open; she was defeated in the third qualifying round by Jana ?epelová but entered the main draw as a lucky loser; however, she lost in the first round to the American qualifier Anna Tatishvili. Dodin had also suffered first-round exits in the singles tournaments in Strasbourg and Rosmalen held earlier in the year.

2016: First WTA singles title, entered top 100

Dodin, 2016

In April, she qualified for the singles main draw of two WTA clay-court tournaments in Europe, where she lost in the first round to Carla Suárez Navarro and Markéta Vondrou?ová in Stuttgart and Prague respectively.

Dodin lost her opening singles matches in three North American hard-court tournaments held in the summer - Washington, Montreal and the US Open.

Dodin won her maiden singles title on the WTA Tour - the Tournoi de Québec - by defeating Lauren Davis in the final. Coming into the tournament, Dodin was ranked 132nd in the singles rankings and had never won a WTA Tour main-draw singles match in her career other than the two first-round victories at the 2015 Australian Open and the 2015 US Open. On September 19, one day after her Quebec tournament victory, she broke into the top 100 of the WTA singles rankings for the first time in her career, attaining a career-high ranking of world No. 93.[3] At the WTA International tournament held in October in Linz, Dodin won three qualifying matches to reach the main-draw, where she was defeated in the quarterfinals by third seed Madison Keys. The following week, Dodin was beaten in the main-draw first round by qualifier Kristýna Plí?ková at the WTA International tournament in Luxembourg.

2017: First win over a top-10 player

Dodin started the year with first-round losses in the qualifying draw to Aleksandra Kruni? in Brisbane and Irina Falconi in Sydney. She then entered the main draw of the Australian Open, beating Ça?la Büyükakçay, before falling to the 21st seed and fellow Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia in the second round. Dodin then entered the qualifying draw of the Qatar Open, falling to Evgeniya Rodina in her first match. At the Hungarian Open, Dodin reached the quarterfinals, which was her best result to date in 2017; she defeated Dalma Gálfi in the first round and Tamara Korpatsch in the second round, both in straight sets, before losing in the quarterfinals to eventual champion Tímea Babos.

Dodin lost both her first-round matches in the main draw to Pauline Parmentier (both in straight sets) at the Indian Wells and Miami Premier Mandatory tournaments. This was followed by another main-draw first-round exit, this time to Magdaléna Rybáriková, at the 60k tournament in Croissy-Beauborg, marking a four-match losing streak. Dodin ended her four-match losing streak at the Ladies Open Biel Bienne, where she defeated Hsieh Su-wei in the first round of the main draw before losing to Julia Görges in the second, in straight sets.

Dodin was eliminated in the qualifying event at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix held at the start of the European clay-court season in the last week of April; she won her first-round match against Katarzyna Piter before losing to Tamara Korpatsch in her second-round match during which she held match points. In the main draw of the WTA Tour tournament in Prague, Dodin defeated Annika Beck in the first round before falling victim to eventual champion Mona Barthel in the second round. At the Madrid Open, she won two matches to qualify for the main draw. In the Madrid Open singles main draw, she beat Andrea Petkovic in the first round and world No. 5, Dominika Cibulková in the second round before losing to Kristina Mladenovic in the third round. Dodin's win over Cibulková was her first career win over a player ranked in the top 10 and coming into the Madrid Open tournament she had defeated only two players (Jelena Jankovi? at the 2015 US Open and Alison Riske at the 2015 Australian Open) ranked in the top 50 in her career.[4][5] Dodin reached the second round of the French Open for the first time, where she lost narrowly in three sets to the No. 8 seed, Svetlana Kuznetsova. On June 12, one day after the conclusion of the French Open, she reached a career-high singles ranking of world No. 46. Dodin made her Wimbledon main-draw singles debut, losing in the first round to the No. 32 seed Lucie ?afá?ová. She made her Grand Slam women's doubles debut at Wimbledon, partnering Tatjana Maria; they won their first-round match before losing to second-seeded Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina. Before that, Dodin had played only one doubles event on the circuit, a $10k tournament in Antalya in May 2014; but she and her partner withdrew from their quarterfinal match after winning in the first round.[1]

Dodin, seeded No. 5, lost in semifinals of the Citi Open to the No. 7 seed Ekaterina Makarova in three sets, after having saved three match points in her second round match against Sara Errani.[6] She lost in the first round of her next two singles events, the Premier-5 tournaments in Toronto and Cincinnati. She defeated her countrywoman Pauline Parmentier in the first round before losing to ninth-seeded Venus Williams in the second round of the US Open. At the Tournoi de Québec, Dodin was the defending champion and seeded No. 2; she won her first-round match against qualifier Gabriela Dabrowski but had to withdraw from her second-round match against another qualifier, Caroline Dolehide, due to dizziness. That was Dodin's last international circuit tournament of 2017.[7]


At the Australian Open, she lost to the unseeded Eugenie Bouchard in the first round. In her next two tournaments, Dodin was defeated in the second round (by Vera Lapko) and first round (by Kristína Ku?ová) of the qualifying draw in St. Petersburg and Doha respectively. In her next tournament in Budapest, she lost in the first round to Alison Van Uytvanck. In the final-round qualifying match against Alison Riske at the Miami Open in March, Dodin lost the first set 1-6 and was forced to retire at the start of the second set. She was heading to the airport when she was offered to enter the main draw as a lucky loser, which she accepted. Dodin finally won her first WTA main-draw singles match of the year (in her fifth tournament of 2018) when she defeated the unseeded Verónica Cepede Royg in three sets. In the second-round match against the top seed and reigning world No. 1, Simona Halep, Dodin was leading by a break at 4-2 in the final set but Halep won the match 3-6, 6-3, 7-5.[8][9]

Dodin registered a singles match-record of two wins and five losses in her next five WTA/ITF tournaments, all of them played on clay courts in Europe - Lugano, Stuttgart, Prague, Cagnes-sur-Mer and Saint-Gaudens. She received a wildcard for the main draw of the French Open, where she lost in the first round to the unseeded Heather Watson 3-6, 0-6. Dodin won three qualifying matches (including a win over top-seeded Camila Giorgi in the second round) to reach the main draw in Birmingham (her first grass-court tournament of the year), where she lost in the first round to Ashleigh Barty 4-6, 3-6. Dodin had to enter the singles qualifying event for her next tournament (Wimbledon) because of her low singles ranking; she was defeated in the second qualifying round there 6-3, 1-6, 8-6 by Mona Barthel. On 11 July, Dodin was forced to retire because of health problems from her opening match against her compatriot Amandine Hesse at the tournament in Contrexéville.[10] On 6 August, her WTA singles ranking fell to world No. 231.


In the first half of April, Dodin entered the singles main draw of a $25k tournament in Sunderland, where she lost in the quarterfinals to Tara Moore; that was Dodin's first ITF Circuit event since the July 2018 Contrexéville tournament.[11]

Style of play

Océane Dodin is known for her ball-hitting power. This is an attribute which is common in her game. Her favorite streak consists of hitting hard from the baseline and concluding the point with a minimum of rallies (3 maximum), a risky game causing her to produce a high number of winning shots but also unforced errors during a match.[12] She declares herself more at ease on hardcourt than on clay, a surface less suited to her game. Her game is also suited to her limited endurance, the repetition of exchanges leading her to have side points.[13] This style of play has been worked on since her early years in Villeneuve-d'Ascq targeting the glance and speed of execution.
