Fruhvirtova had a strong junior career and climbed to fourth in the ITF Junior rankings in 2021. Before this feat, the Czech player won several events at various junior levels. One of her first titles came when she was 10 years old at the under-12s Eddie Herr tournament.

During her junior years, Fruhvirtova played at three girls' Roland Garros finals but failed to progress past the first round. However, at the 2020 Junior French Open, Fruhvirtova was the youngest player in the competition, aged just 13.

In 2021, Fruhvirtova made her professional debut at the Seoul 125K event. She earned her first WTA points at the competition, too, after beating Jeong Moon in the first round. An impressive 2022 season followed as Fruhvirtova dominated several ITF junior events.

Throughout the season, the Czech player won eight titles on the ITF Circuit. In addition, she made her WTA Tour debut at the Guadalajara Open but lost against Sloane Stephens in round one. Following a breakthrough season in 2022, Fruhvirtova made bigger strides in the 2023 season.

In January, the Czech player made her Grand Slam debut at the Australian Open and became the youngest player since 2018 to navigate qualifying at the event. However, Fruhvirtova lost against Aliaksandra Sasnovich in round one. Fruhvirtova bounced back by making the Miami Open main draw in April for her Masters debut.

She then made another Grand Slam appearance at the 2023 Roland Garros after progressing through the qualifying rounds. But Fruhvirtova lost against Elena Rybakina in round one. Fruhvirtova returned to the Australian Open main draw in 2024 and recovered her first-ever Grand Slam victory. She defeated Ana Bogdan in the first round - a result which launched Fruhvirtova into the WTA top 100 for the first time.
