2016: First WTA Tour singles title and top 100 of the WTA singles ranking
Dodin won her maiden singles title on the WTA Tour – the 2016 Coupe Banque Nationale in Quebec City – by defeating Lauren Davis in the final. Coming into the Quebec City tournament, Dodin was ranked 132nd in the WTA 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 Sep 19, right after her Quebec City singles tournament victory, she broke into the top 100 of the WTA singles rankings for the first time in her career. At the WTA Tour tournament held in October in Linz, Dodin won three singles qualifying matches to reach the main draw, where she was defeated in the quarterfinals by Madison Keys.
2017: Early struggles and first career singles win against a player ranked in the top 10 of the WTA singles rankings
Dodin started the year with first round losses in qualifying to Aleksandra Krunić in Brisbane and Irina Falconi in Sydney. She then entered the main draw of the Australian Open, beating Çağla Büyükakçay, before falling to the 21st seed and fellow Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia in the second round. Dodin then entered qualifying of the Qatar Total Open, falling to Evgeniya Rodina in her first match. At the Hungarian Ladies 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 WTA Premier Mandatory tournaments. This was followed by another main draw first round exit, this time to Magdaléna Rybáriková, at the $60,000 ITF Womens's Circuit 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 straight sets in the second round.
Dodin was eliminated in qualifying in the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix held at the start of the european clay court season; 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 Mutua Madrid Open, she won two qualifying matches to qualify for the singles main draw. In the Madrid Open singles main draw, she beat Andrea Petkovic in the first round and world number 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 singles win against a player ranked in the top 10 of the WTA singles rankings and coming into the Madrid Open tournament she had defeated only two players (Jelena Janković at the 2015 US Open and Alison Riske at the 2015 Australian Open) ranked in the top 50 of the WTA singles rankings in her singles career.
