Bio She graduated from Northeast High School, St. Petersburg, Florida, in 2012. As a high school player, her junior ranking was good enough to get her a scholarship from the University of Florida. After her freshman year, she transferred to the University of Virginia (UVA). She won the NCAA singles title in her sophomore and senior years, in 2014 and 2016. Collins finished her career at Virginia in 2016 as the top-ranked collegiate player. She made a significant breakthrough in the WTA Tour when she reached the semifinals of the 2019 Australian Open.

In 2009, Collins played her first events on the ITF Women's Circuit. She won her first ITF singles title in 2011. Although, She did not play any professional matches in 2013 and 2015.

Collins made her WTA Tour main-draw debut as a wildcard at the 2014 US Open in the Arthur Ashe Stadium, where she forced second seed Simona Halep to a third-setter in the first round.

In mid-2016, she turned fully professional, and until 2017, she won a total of three ITF singles titles.

Collins started the year reaching the third round of the qualifying rounds at the Australian Open before being outclassed by Denisa Allertová, in two sets. However, she received a wildcard at the WTA 125K tournament at Newport Beach, and claimed the title there, which saw her rise to a career-high ranking at that time of 120.

Another impressive run at another WTA 125K tournament, this time in Indian Wells, saw her reach the quarterfinals and thus earn a wildcard at the BNP Paribas Open, a Premier Mandatory tournament that also takes place in Indian Wells. There, she won her first ever WTA match against compatriot Taylor Townsend, before beating world No. 14 Madison Keys in straight sets, followed by a victory over Sofya Zhuk. Although her run ended in the fourth-round to former world No. 6 Carla Suárez Navarro, Collins made her top-100 debut, jumping from No. 117 to No. 93.

Getting through the qualifying rounds at the Miami Open, Collins beat world No. 37 Irina-Camelia Begu in straight sets before upsetting two-time major semifinalist CoCo Vandeweghe in three sets. Victories over Donna Vekić and Monica Puig followed, before she earned the biggest victory of her career, beating her idol, former world No. 1 and seven-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams, who was the eighth-ranked player coming into their encounter. With this win she became the first qualifier ever to reach the semifinals at the Miami Open. She then faced sixth seeded Jeļena Ostapenko and lost in straight sets, despite having a set point in the first set. Making it to the quarterfinals in Monterrey, Collins broke into the top 50 for the first time.

In 2019, her rise continued at the Australian Open. Prior to the tournament, she had never won a match at a major event. After upsetting 14th seed Julia Goerges in a tough first-round match, Collins won her next three matches in straight sets; first against Sachia Vickery, then against 19th seed Caroline Garcia. In the round of 16, Collins pulled off the biggest upset of the tournament, dominating the second seed and three-time major champion Angelique Kerber in straight sets. She thus reached the quarterfinals, where she defeated Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in three sets. In the semifinals, she lost to eighth seed Petra Kvitová in two sets.
