Professional career

2014: Professional debut

Zidan?ek made a perfect professional debut in 2014 at her home in Velenje, passing three qualifying rounds to go in the main draw and claim her first title on the pro-level at the age of 16.[2]

2021: First singles major semifinal, top 50 debut, first top-10 win & first WTA singles title

She reached the semifinals of a Grand Slam championship for the first time at the 2021 French Open, defeating Sorana Cîrstea in straight sets[3] and Paula Badosa in three sets.[4] These wins made her the first Slovenian female player to accomplish this since the country became independent in 1991. As a result, Zidan?ek entered the top 50 for the first time. She also scored her first top-ten win in the first round, against the No. 6 seed, Bianca Andreescu.[5] In the semifinal, Zidan?ek was defeated by Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, in straight sets.

At the Ladies Open Lausanne, as the top seed, Zidansek beat Marina Melnikova, Mandy Minella, Lucia Bronzetti, Maryna Zanevska and Clara Burel to win her first WTA Tour title.

2022

Seeded 29th at the Australian Open, she reached the third round for the first time, but lost to Alizé Cornet. At the French Open, Zidansek was beaten in the third round by Jessica Pegula, in straight sets.

Coaching

Zidan?ek was coached by Zoran Krajnc until April 2021. In May 2021, her team, led by Marjan ?uk, signed with Pancho Alvariño from Spain.
