The 26-year-old played in the inaugural United Cup, defeating Maddison Inglis and giving Jessica Pegula a good run for her money. In the Australian Open, her campaign ended with a first-round loss. She suffered the same fate at the subsequent Thailand Open where Bianca Andreescu ousted her in the first round. In the Qatar Open, she lost to Karolina Pliskova in the second qualifying round.

Dart’s results didn’t get better in Dubai as she crashed out in the first round of qualifying. She recently played in the ATX Open where she lost to Erika Andreeva in the round of 32 in a closely contested clash.
