Martina Trevisan was born on November 3, 1993, in Florence, Italy, to Claudio and Martina Trevisan. Her father was a professional football player in the Italian second league (Serie B), while her mother was a tennis coach. She has a brother named Matteo, who is also a professional tennis player.

Trevisan came onto the WTA Tour later than many other players. By the end of 2019, she had only won two WTA matches, although she did claim nine titles on the ITF Circuit during this period. The Italian became noticed in the tennis world after a shock run to the quarterfinal of the 2020 Roland Garros.

As a qualifier, she beat future US Open champion Coco Gauff, and Maria Sakkari during her run to that stage before being stopped by the eventual champion, Iga Swiatek. Trevisan then struggled to build on that success in 2021. This led to her ending the year ranked outside the Top 100 once again, having started the season at No. 84.

However, Trevisan had an amazing clay court season in 2022. She claimed a maiden WTA title at the Morocco Open in Rabat in May 2022. Her run to the final included a triumph against the former Wimbledon and French Open winner Garbine Muguruza. Trevisan then easily beat Claire Liu 6-2, 6-1 in the final.

A few weeks later, the Italian had had an even better run than two years ago at the French Open. She began with a thrilling 3-6, 7-6, 7-5 victory against the sixth seed Ons Jabeur. That was followed by wins against Magda Linette and Daria Saville. Trevisan then reached her maiden Grand Slam semifinal by prevailing against Aliaksandra Sasnovich and Leylah Fernandez. She was denied a place in the final by a clinical Coco Gauff in the semifinal.

The Italian had some solid results at the WTA 1000 level in 2023. For instance, she reached the quarterfinal at the Miami Open and the Guadalajara Open, where she was beaten by Elena Rybakina and Caroline Dolehide, respectively.

Trevisan ended 2023 by being a runner-up at the Billie Jean King Cup with Italy. She won all three of her singles matches in the group stage and semifinal, but in the final against Canada, she suffered a shock defeat to Marina Stakusic.
