With 67 appearances overall, she ranks ninth, and her 64 consecutive Grand Slam appearances set a record. Because of her three victories over Serena Williams, the world’s best player, Cornet rose to fame in 2014.

She overcame a set deficit to defeat Williams in the third round of the Wimbledon Championships in July, bringing the American her earliest elimination from the competition since 2005. Later that year, when Williams retired due to sickness, she earned her third victory in the second round in Wuhan.

At the German Open in June 2021, at the start of the grass-court season, Cornet advanced to the semifinals by defeating the third-seeded Bianca Andreescu (her first top-10 win for 2021) and the sixth-seeded Garbie Muguruza in a close three-set battle. In the semifinal, she was defeated by Belinda Bencic. In the first round of Wimbledon, she overcame fifth-seeded Andreescu once more, earning her second top-10 victory of the year. Cornet competed in the first Chicago Women’s Open in August, making it to the final where she was defeated by Elina Svitolina.

She defeated the number one player in the world, Iga Witek, in the third round, snapping a 37-match winning streak. She defeated the current world No. 1 for the second time at Wimbledon with this victory (after Serena Williams in 2014).
