Magdalena Frech is a Polish professional tennis player who was born on December 15, 1997, in Lodz, Poland. She started the sport at a young age, 6, and she had dreams of conquering the world of tennis.

Despite making her WTA doubles debut in 2013, she would have to wait until the following season to repeat the feat in singles. Her first taste of a WTA main draw tournament came in her home country at the Katowice Open, where she ended up bowing out to sixth seed Yvonne Meusburger in the first round.

Progress after that appearance did not come as quickly as the Pole would have hoped. She spent the next few years gaining experience on the ITF Tour, gradually getting deeper and deeper at tournaments, winning more points, in preparation to give the full-time WTA Tour a crack.

2018 was the year things started to change for her, with her making her Grand Slam debut early in the season at the Australian Open. These rankings points did wonders for her access to other tournaments, with her entering the qualifying for numerous events in the following months.

Her first victory at Grand Slam level came at the 2018 French Open, where she beat Ekaterina Alexandrova in a tight first-round contest. It was more of the same in 2019, with the Pole not able to regularly get past first-round appearance at WTA level.

This started to change in 2020, with her reaching her first quarterfinal at the Prague Open, only to be beaten by number 1 seed Simona Halep. The following year was a testament to all her hard work, with the woman from Lodz claiming her first WTA Challenger title when she beat Zarazua in the final of the Thoreau Tennis Open.

She backed this performance up later on in the season with her first win at the WTA 1000 level. This progress multiplied in the following years, with her reaching the third round at Wimbledon in 2022, before going on to reach the fourth round at the Australian Open in 2024. This good run saw her reach her break into the world's Top 45.
