Tennis career[edit]

Early years[edit]

Partnering Jan Abaza, Chirico won her first $50,000 ITF tournament at the 2013 Audi Melbourne Pro Tennis Classic, defeating Asia Muhammad and Allie Will in the final.

Chirico made her Grand Slam debut at the 2015 French Open after being awarded a wild card into the event by the USTA.[2] She lost in the first round to ninth seed Ekaterina Makarova in straight sets.

Chirico won her first WTA Tour match at the 2015 Citi Open where she defeated Briton Heather Watson. She then beat top-30 player Alizé Cornet in a third-set tie-break but lost to compatriot Sloane Stephens in the quarterfinals.

2016[edit]

In May 2016, Chirico won five qualifier and main-draw matches at the Madrid Open to reach the semifinals.[3] Later that month, she reached the main draw of the French Open through three qualifying wins and made it through to the second round.[4]
