Bio Lauren Davis (born October 9, 1993) is an American professional tennis player. Known for her aggressive backhand, quickness, and clay-court ability, she won her first Women's Tennis Association (WTA) title at the ASB Classic in Auckland and reached her career-high singles ranking of world No. 26 in May 2017. Davis has also won eight singles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit. She began playing tennis at age 9. Upon turning 16, she left her hometown for training at the Evert Tennis Academy.
Davis made her junior debut via wild card at the 2008 US Open, losing to Ajla Tomljanović.

After a third-round appearance in a Grade 1 tournament in Carson, California, she won her first junior tournament at a Grade 3 tournament in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, defeating Brooke Bolender in three sets. She finished 2009 with a quarter-final appearance at the US Open, before a third-round loss at the Dunlop Orange Bowl.

In 2010, Davis reached one quarter-final in the first four months, before reaching the final of the Easter Bowl, losing to Krista Hardebeck. She again lost in the final of a tournament, this time in the 51st Trofeo Bonfiglio to Beatrice Capra. In November 2010, she went on an 18-match winning streak, winning the Grade 1 tournaments Yucatán World Cup and the Eddie Herr youth tournament, as well as the Grade A Orange Bowl tournament. She finished the year a career-high world number three on the junior tour.

While still a junior, Davis won her first professional title on clay at a United States Tennis Association tournament in Williamsburg, Virginia in 2010. She then went on a 27-match win streak and won her second pro title in Puerto Rico. She ended her junior career after a third-round appearance at the 2011 Australian Open.

Davis was awarded a wildcard into the Australian Open, where she lost her first Grand Slam appearance against fifth-seeded Samantha Stosur in the first round. She officially turned professional in 2011 and won her first WTA match at the 2011 Miami Masters qualifiers by beating Jill Craybas in three sets. She then lost to Anastasiya Yakimova.
Davis made it through the qualifying rounds to get her into the main draw of the 2012 French Open, where she won her first main draw Grand Slam match against 30th seed Mona Barthel in straight sets. In the second round, she lost to compatriot Christina McHale in straight sets.
In 2014, at the Australian Open, Davis beat Julia Goerges to advance to the third round of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time. At Wimbledon, Davis upset Flavia Pennetta in straight sets and advanced to the third round of the tournament for the first time. She ended the year ranked world number 57.
In 2016, Davis reached her first WTA final at the 2016 Citi Open, where she was runner-up against Yanina Wickmayer. She reached her second career final at the Coupe Banque Nationale in September and was runner-up to Océane Dodin.
In 2017, Davis won her first WTA title at the 2017 ASB Classic in Auckland, defeating Ana Konjuh in the final. She was also part of the United States team that reached the Fed Cup final with a victory over the Czech Republic. In May, she reached her career-best ranking of world number 26.
At 2018 Australian Open, in round three she had three match points against Simona Halep in a match lasting 3:45 hours, losing the third set 13–15. The match equalled the Australian Open record for most games played in a women's singles draw match at 48 — equaling Chanda Rubin's 1996 quarterfinal win over Arantxa Sánchez Vicario.
Clay is one of her best surfaces.
