In May, Mladenovic reached the singles semi finals of a WTA Tour event, The Internationaux de Strasbourg, but lost to Mirjana Lučić-Baroni.

At the French Open, Mladenovic won her 1st round match against the 2010 French Open singles champion Francesca Schiavone, and defeated her former doubles partner Tímea Babos in the 2nd round.

Mladenovic won the women's doubles event partnering Caroline Garcia, beating Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina in the final. It was the first Grand Slam women's doubles crown for Garcia and Mladenovic and they became the first all-French pair to win the French Open women's doubles title since Gail Chanfreau and Françoise Dürr in 1971.[22]

In June, Mladenovic reached her second career WTA Tour singles final at the Rosmalen Grass Court Championships. She lost her final match to Coco Vandeweghe 7-5,7-5.

Mladenovic participated in the women's singles and doubles events of the 2016 Summer Olympics. In singles, Mladenovic was defeated in the second round by Madison Keys. In doubles, Mladenovic partnered with countrywoman Caroline Garcia, with whom she had won the French Open a few months prior. Despite being the number 2 seed, Mladenovic and Garcia lost in the first round.

At the 2016 US Open singles event, Mladenovic passed the first round before falling to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. In the doubles event, Mladenovic (partnered with Garcia) reached the final, during which the French team was defeated by the American Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Czech Lucie Safarova. This allowed Garcia and Mladenovic to qualify for the 2016 WTA Finals, becoming the second doubles team yet to do so.

Mladenovic moved on to the Asian swing, starting at the Korea Open. Seeded no. 4, Mladenovic had a surprise loss against Sara Sorribes Tormo, the 139th player in the world. Next, at the Wuhan Open, Mladenovic faced world no. 1 Angelique Kerber in the second round. Kerber won the match, although Mladenovic captured the first set. In doubles, Mladenovic partnered with Garcia again, and the team was seeded no. 1. Despite this, the Frenchwomen lost their opening match against Christina McHale and Peng Shuai. In Beijing, Mladenovic defeated former number 1 Jelena Jankovic in the first round, before coming across 8th seed Madison Keys. Keys won in straight sets. In doubles, Mladenovic and Garcia, once again no. 1 seed, made their way to the final, in which they faced Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Lucie Safarova, in a rematch of the US Open final a few weeks earlier. Mattek-Sands and Safarova would win, 4-6, 4-6.

Mladenovic had success in singles at the 2016 Hong Kong Tennis Open. An unseeded player, she reached the semifinals after defeating doubles rival Bethanie Mattek-Sands in the quarterfinals. She passed no. 8 seed Daria Gavrilova to reach her second singles final of the year. She was defeated by former no. 1 Caroline Wozniacki in the final.

Shortly before heading into the 2016 WTA Doubles Finals, Mladenovic and Caroline Garcia received the WTA Award for Best Doubles Team of the Year. During the WTA Finals, the Frenchwomen defeated Julia Görges and Karolína Plíšková in the quarterfinals, but fell to Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Lucie Šafářová in the semifinals.

During the 2016 Fed Cup final between France and the Czech Republic, Mladenovic lost the first rubber narrowly against Karolína Plíšková, 3-6, 6-4, 14-16, a match that lasted 3 hours and 48 minutes. She later played doubles with Garcia in the fifth and decisive rubber against Plíšková and Barbora Strýcová, which they lost 5-7, 5-7, enabling the Czechs to win the Fed Cup for the fifth time in six years.

In December, Garcia and Mladenovic were named the doubles ITF World Champions of 2016. Mladenovic ended the year ranked no. 42 in singles, and tied no. 2 in doubles (with Garcia).

2017: Hopman Cup Champion, First WTA and Premier Title[edit]

Mladenovic began the year by playing at the 2017 Hopman Cup alongside Richard Gasquet. The pair won their first tie against Germany's Andrea Petkovic and Alexander Zverev 2-1 (Mladenovic lost her match against Petkovic), and their second tie against Daniel Evans and Heather Watson 3-0. In a decisive tie against Switzerland which would decide which team went on to the final, Mladenovic (following Gasquet's defeat to Roger Federer) defeated Belinda Bencic and triumphed with Gasquet against the Swiss pair in mixed doubles, winning the tie. In the final, Mladenovic and Gasquet faced Americans Jack Sock and Coco Vandeweghe. Although Mladenovic lost her match, the French duo won the decisive mixed doubles match, meaning that France was the 2017 Hopman Cup champion.

Mladenovic had a disappointing run at the Australian Open in singles, losing in the first round to Ana Konjuh. However, in doubles, Mladenovic, reuniting with parter Caroline Garcia, reached the semifinals of the event. Their run was stopped by Andrea Hlavackova and Peng Shuai.

At the St. Petersburg Ladies Trophy, Mladenovic won her first round match against Elise Mertens before upsetting Australian Open finalist Venus Williams to reach the quarterfinals. She continued her fabulous form against no. 6 seed and defending champion Roberta Vinci, defeating the Italian veteran in straight sets. In the semifinals, the Frenchwoman defeated rising player Natalia Vikhlyantseva to reach the first Premier final of her career. In a tense final, Mladenovic defeated Yulia Putintseva, 6-2, 6-7(3-7), 6-4, winning the first WTA title of her career. Mladenovic became the first French woman to win a Premier title since Marion Bartoli in 2011. In addition, Mladenovic competed in doubles with Daria Gavrilova; this was the first time Mladenovic played with someone other than Garcia in over a year. The pair were defeated in the semifinals.

During the Fed Cup first round, in which France plays against Switzerland, Mladenovic won her first match against Belinda Bencic. However, she then lost to Timea Bacsinszky in her next rubber, resulting in Switzerland winning the tie and France having to play in the World Group Play-offs for a chance to enter the World Group again in 2018.[23]

At the Dubai Tennis Championships, the first a Premier 5 event of the season, Mladenovic defeated Katerina Siniakova before scoring a big win over world no. 3 Karolína Plíšková in the second round.[24] She then lost to Wang Qiang in the next round. Mladenovic's good form continued at the Mexican Open, where she stormed past Varvara Lepchenko before winning a marathon match against Heather Watson to reach the quarterfinals, in which she defeated Kirsten Flipkens. Mladenovic then won her semifinal encounter with Christina McHale, reaching her second WTA final of 2017.[25] Though she did end up losing to Lesia Tsurenko in the final, her success in February allowed Mladenovic to reach a career-high ranking of 26. Additionally, Mladenovic was nominated for February's WTA Shot of the Month, WTA Breakthrough Player of the Month, and WTA Player of the Month (winning Breakthrough Player of the Month).[26]

Prior to the 2017 BNP Paribas Open, Mladenovic announced that her partnership with Caroline Garcia would end, per Garcia's request.[27] Mladenovic instead competes with Svetlana Kuznetsova in the doubles draw of Indian Wells. Meanwhile, in singles, the Frenchwoman received a bye into the second round, being seeded no. 28. She had a strong opening, defeating Annika Beck of Germany.
