In Sanchez's first full season on tour, she climbed over 530 spots in the WTA world rankings. Her first sign of promise came at The Bahamas Women's Open $100,000 ITF in February, where, as a wildcard entry, she took out Urszula Radwańska and Eva Birnerová before falling to Bojana Jovanovski in the quarter-finals. Sanchez went on to reach the 2012 Audi Melbourne Pro Tennis Classic $50,000 ITF final, losing to Grace Min and finishing runner-up to Melanie Oudin in the race for the USTA 2012 French Open main draw wildcard. A few weeks later, Sanchez captured the 2012 FSP Gold River Women's Challenger $50,000 title in front of friends and family in Northern California, defeating Jessica Pegula in a three-set final. The win marked Sanchez's first pro title. Sanchez quickly added a second title at the Coleman Vision Championships $75,000 ITF event in Albuquerque, New Mexico in September, where she defeated American teenager Lauren Davis 6–1, 6–1.
