2023: Drop in results

Martincová at the 2023 French Open.

After two successful years, during the 2023 season she made significant drop. She started season with three first round losses at the Australian Tour - ASB Classic, Hobart International and Australian Open, respectively. No progress were seen at the following tournaments such as no passing qualifying at the WTA 1000 Qatar Open & Indian Wells Open. She then recorded her first year tour level win at the Miami Open. There she defeated Tamara Korpatsch but then lost to Beatriz Haddad Maia. Both mathes were played in the three sets.

Due to weak tour level performances, she was forced to also play some ITF tournaments. As her preparation for the following clay season, she played at the $80k Zaragoza tournament, where she was advanced to the final. Despite losing to Viktoriya Tomova in the final, it was her first significant result of the year. Still, she continued to struggle with results, since she was eliminated in the qualifying of the Madrid Open, reaching only first round of the Italian Open and losing in the first round of the French Open. During the grass season, she recorded her second tour win of the year at the Birmingham Classic. After main-draw first round loss at Wimbledon, she started with some better results. First, she reached semifinal of the WTA Challenger Grand Est. She followed up this with second round of the Warsaw Open, quarterfinals at the Prague Open and another quarterfinal at the WTA Challenger Polish Open.
