Gavrilova was chosen to represent Russia at the inaugural Youth Olympic Games held in Singapore. Despite entering the draw unseeded, Gavrilova progressed to the gold medal match, beating Stefanie Tan, top seed Elina Svitolina, Tang Haochen, and seventh seed Jana Čepelová. In the final, Gavrilova went a set down against Zheng Saisai of China, but rallied to win the Gold medal, 2–6, 6–2, 6–0. Following her win, Gavrilova became the top ranked junior player by the ITF.
In September, Gavrilova competed in the junior event at the US Open as the top seed. She progressed through the draw with wins over Lauren Davis, Caroline Price, Tang Haochen, Robin Anderson, and Sloane Stephens to set up an all-Russian final with compatriot Yulia Putintseva, ultimately emerging with her maiden grand slam title with a 6–2, 6–3 victory. In addition, Gavrilova competed in the doubles event with fellow Russian Irina Khromacheva, progressing to the semi-final, before losing to eventual champions Tímea Babos and Sloane Stephens.
Following her success in junior tennis, Gavrilova was awarded a wildcard into the main draw of the WTA event in her hometown of Moscow. She faced Ukraine's Alona Bondarenko and despite a spirited performance, ultimately lost her WTA debut 7–5, 6–1. She ended the year as the No. 1 junior player, and at No. 515 on the senior tour.
Gavrilova suffered disappointment in her attempts to become the first junior player since Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova to win two junior Grand Slam titles, with first round defeats at the Australian Open and Wimbledon events, a quarter-final defeat to eventual champion Ons Jabeur at the French Open and a second round defeat to American Victoria Duval in her defence of her US Open title. As the reigning junior champion, Gavrilova was awarded a wildcard into the qualifying draw for the senior event, but lost her first match against Kurumi Nara.
Beginning to compete in more professional events on the ITF tour, Gavrilova lost her first final in the $25k event in Moscow to Lyudmyla Kichenok, but later in the year, claimed her first professional title at the $10k event in Antalya, beating fellow Russian Ksenia Lykina in the final. Gavrilova ended the year ranked No. 383 on the senior tour.
In April, Gavrilova won her first professional doubles title, claiming the title at a $25k event in Chiasso, Switzerland, along with partner Irina Khromacheva. The pair continued their partnership at the junior event at the French Open and claimed the title over Montserrat González and Beatriz Haddad Maia.
In June, Gavrilova qualified for the main draw at a WTA event for the first time at the 2012 UNICEF Open in the Netherlands, beating higher ranked players Anastasia Rodionova and Yuliya Beygelzimer to progress to the first round. Gavrilova then earned her career best win, thrashing world No. 35 Yanina Wickmayer 6–1, 6–2 to set up a second round tie with fellow qualifier Kirsten Flipkens. Despite being a break up in the first set, and staging a comeback from 1–5 down in the second, Gavrilova lost a close match 7–5, 7–6, ending her participation in the tournament.
Gavrilova began her season by playing in the qualifying draw in Brisbane. She upset Mariana Duque-Marino in the first round, before losing to Vania King. At the Australian Open, Gavrilova earned a place in the qualifying draw based on her ranking for the first time. In the first round, she beat Stephanie Vogt 6–3, 6–4, before upsetting 24th seed Eugenie Bouchard 7–6, 7–6. In the final round of qualification, Gavrilova rallied from a set down to beat Zhou Yimiao 4–6, 6–4, 7–5, to earn a spot in the main draw of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time in her career. In the first round, she faced American Lauren Davis and won in three sets. Gavrilova's maiden slam run came to an end in the second round against fellow qualifier Lesia Tsurenko, losing 7–5, 6–3, despite taking a 4–0 first set lead.
In February, Gavrilova competed at the Qatar Total Open, a Premier Five level event. In the qualifying draw, Gavrilova defeated Kristina Barrois, before losing to Tadeja Majerič. However, following the withdrawal of Maria Kirilenko, Gavrilova returned to the draw as a lucky loser, and beat Anabel Medina Garrigues 4–6, 6–3, 6–3 in the first round. In the second round, Gavrilova played her first match against a top ten player in world number two Serena Williams and lost in straight sets.
