Career[edit]

Kulichkova made her WTA tour main draw debut at the 2014 İstanbul Cup as a qualifier. Having defeated Nadiia Kichenok and Melinda Czink in the preliminary rounds, she lost to Shahar Pe'er in round one. Further first round exits followed in Hong Kong and Seoul before once again coming through qualifying in Tianjin, where she defeated Sílvia Soler Espinosa, before losing to Peng Shuai in the second round.

Kulichkova made her major debut at the 2015 Wimbledon Championships by defeating (3–6, 7–68–6, 10–8) Yanina Wickmayer before losing (4–6, 6–73–7) to further quarterfinalist Madison Keys in the second round. Then, she reached semifinals in Bursa, and in Baku she was close to defeat, in the first round, seed no.1 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, but she lost the final tie-breaker (6–3, 2–6, 6–74–7).

For the first time Kulichkova was nominated for the Team Russia at the 2016 Fed Cup against Belarus in the World Group play-offs, where she should have played the last dead rubber with Elena Vesnina, but she was replaced by Daria Kasatkina.
