Born in Mannheim, Frankl began competing on the WTA Tour in 1988.

Frankl broke into the top 100 of the singles rankings for the first time in 1993 and made the third round of the 1993 French Open.

In 1994 she reached her best ranking of 67, with her performances including making the semi-finals at the Prague Open, a win over 14th seed Zina Garrison at the French Open and a third round appearance at Wimbledon.[2][3]
