Martić also made it to the semifinals of Bogota (lost to Dominguez Lino) and Copenhagen (lost to Hradecka) and beat Vesnina and Vickmayer to reach the third round of Cincinnati. She finished the year in top 50 for the first time in her career.

Martić started the 2012 season losing in the first rounds of several tournaments including the Australian Open, Doha, and Dubai.

It was the first meeting between the two and the second top-ten victory of the year for Martić.

The next four years of her career were plagued by injuries and poor form. In 2013, Martić made it to the third round of a WTA tournament only twice, at Katowice and Wimbledon. She also won the 2013 ITF Nottingham (def. Karolina Pliskova in the final), but dropped out of the top 100 by the end of the year.

Suffering from a major back injury (disc protrusion in her lower back), Martić was not sure if she would play competitive tennis again.

After a ten-month injury lay-off, she made a come-back at $25,000 event at Santa Margherita di Pula. Ranked No. 659, Martić had to go through qualifying, and in the end, won the tournament (def. von Deichmann in the final). She then went on a 17–3 run leading up to 2017 French Open, where she qualified (despite being down a match point in the third round of qualifying against Maryna Zanevska), and won three rounds in the main draw, losing to Elina Svitolina after being up 5–2 in the third set. Along the way, she defeated Madison Keys and Anastasija Sevastova - her first top-20 victories in five years. At Wimbledon, she again went through qualifying rounds and upset Daria Gavrilova on her way to her second consecutive fourth-round appearance at a Grand Slam (and third overall). After Wimbledon, Martić played only four more tournaments, going 2–4, but finished the year in top 100 for the first time since 2012.

Continuing her success from 2017, Martić made it to the fourth round of the 2018 Australian Open (lost to Elise Mertens 6–7, 5–7), and reached her first quarterfinal at a Premier Mandatory in Indian Wells (def.

Then she followed it with her first WTA trophy at İstanbul Cup, defeating M. Vondrousova in the final, after losing the first set 1–6. Martic then made it to the quarterfinals of the Madrid Open, defeating Muguruza and Vekic along the way. In April, she was nominated for the WTA Player of the Month. On the 13th of May, she entered the top 30 for the first time in her career - 7 years, 7 months and 18 days after first entering the top 50.

At the French Open, seeded 31st, she defeated Ons Jabeur and Kristina Mladenovic to reach the third round where she upset second seed Karolína Plíšková. She defeated Kaia Kanepi in the fourth round to reach her first ever Grand Slam quarterfinal. There, she was defeated by Markéta Vondroušová.
