Career

2008-2015: ITF circuit

Golubic started playing on the ITF circuit in 2008 in Hungary and played her first two WTA qualifying tournaments in Budapest and Bad Gastein in 2010. She played her first match in the main draw of a WTA event in Bad Gastein in 2013, reaching the second round. However, all of her attempts to qualify for a Grand Slam failed.

2016: Fed Cup campaign; breakthrough

After winning her eighth ITF title, Golubic reached her first Grand Slam main draw at the Australian Open through qualifying and lost to Carla Suárez Navarro in the first round of the tournament. She then reached the quarterfinals of another ITF event before failing to reach the main draw of her next three tournaments. At the Katowice Open, Golubic entered the main draw as a qualifier and beat Paula Kania in the first round before losing to Tímea Babos.

At the Fed Cup semifinals, Golubic earned surprising wins over Karolína Plí?ková and Barbora Strýcová, defeating both in three sets. Although it was not enough for Switzerland to beat the Czech Republic, Golubic was praised for her performance.[2]

Prior to the French Open, Golubic played in the qualifying of the WTA Prague Open, where she lost to Viktória Ku?mová in the first round. After a quarterfinal appearance in Saint-Gaudens, she entered Roland Garros through qualifying and earned her first Grand Slam main-draw win with a three-set victory over Alison Riske. She lost to Lucie ?afá?ová in round two.

Golubic started her grass-court season at the Ricoh Open, entering the main draw as a qualifier and defeating Anna-Lena Friedsam and Risa Ozaki en route to her first WTA quarterfinal, losing to Belinda Bencic. Her next two tournaments (the Mallorca Open and Wimbledon) ended in qualifying. She also lost in the first round of her next ITF tournament in Budapest.

At the inaugural Ladies Championship Gstaad, Golubic beat No. 7 seed Mona Barthel, Evgeniya Rodina, Carina Witthöft and Rebeka Masarova en route to her first WTA final. She then defeated third seed Kiki Bertens to lift her first WTA trophy. With the title, Golubic entered the top 100 for the first time.[3] Golubic reached another final at the Linz Open, in which she was defeated by Dominika Cibulková. She ended the season as No. 57 in the WTA Rankings.

2017: Setback

In 2017, Golubic could not emulate her results of the previous year. She won only four matches in the first half of the season and subsequently dropped out of the top 100 again.

2019: First WTA 125k title

Golubic won her biggest title since 2016 at the Indian Wells Challenger, saving a championship point against Jennifer Brady in the finals. On her way to the title round, she knocked out top seed Wang Qiang to mark her first Top 20 win since October 2016.
