There, Rus scored wins against two top-100 players Magdaléna Rybáriková and Anna Karolína Schmiedlová. The Netherlands went on to win the tie 4-1 and moved on to the World Group playoffs. Playing the World Group playoffs against Australia and on indoor clay again, Rus, ranked 217th in the world, lost her first match against Casey Dellacqua, but beat 48th-ranked Jarmila Gajdošová in a three-set match, ultimately helping the Netherlands get the win and a pass to the Fed Cup World Group for the first time since 1998. As a result of her performance, she was nominated for a Heart Award by the Fed Cup, ultimately losing to Romania's Irina-Camelia Begu.

2016

Rus's low ranking meant she had to qualify for several ITF tournaments, successfully doing so seven times out of seven throughout the season. In February, she played on indoor carpet at $25k Altenkirchen, Germany, winning two qualifying rounds to enter the main draw, and winning another four matches to reach the final where she lost to Ysaline Bonaventure. In July, she reached the semifinals of a $50k clay-court tournament in Rome where she lost to Laura Pous Tió. Rus reached the semifinals of another two $25k tournaments, both played on outdoor clay, in Aschaffenburg (where she had to win three qualifying rounds) and Leipzig, losing both times at that stage. In October, she won back to back $25k titles in Thailand and France. Rus reached the singles quarterfinals or better at eleven ITF tournaments this year. She also won three doubles titles.

Rus won 39 singles matches on the ITF Circuit, and with a 39–21 win/loss ratio she finished the year in the top 200 for the first time since 2013, as the 174th singles player in the rankings, moving 115 spots up from the previous year.

2017: First WTA Tour doubles title and WTA 125 singles final

For the first time since 2014, Rus played the qualifying rounds of a major, at the Australian Open, losing in the first round to Romanian Ana Bogdan in three sets. In March, she reached the quarterfinals of the $60k hardcourt event in Zhuhai, China.

She started for the Netherlands in Fed Cup, pairing with Cindy Burger. Both times they played, it was a dead rubber. The Netherlands lost their first round in the World Group to Belarus, but beat Slovakia in the playoffs, for staying in the World Group in 2018.

Rus went on a three-match losing streak, which included a qualifying round at the Morocco Open. She broke this streak at the singles qualifying at the French Open, where she won her first two matches against Viktoriya Tomova and Antonia Lottner. She lost the last qualification match against compatriot Quirine Lemoine in three sets, despite having a match point.

Rus received a wildcard for the Rosmalen Championships, her WTA Tour home tournament. It was her first grass-court tournament since 2014. In round one, she upset 36th-ranked Tímea Babos in a three-setter, and won her second-round match against Andrea Hlaváčková, in straight sets. In the quarterfinals, she lost to eventual runner-up, Natalia Vikhlyantseva, in straight sets. This performance marked Rus's first wins at tour-level since the 2013 Gastein Ladies where she also had reached the quarterfinals. This also marked the first time Rus winning a main-draw grass-court match since the 2012 Wimbledon Championships. As a result, she moved up 25 spots in the WTA rankings from world No. 183 to No. 158, her highest rank in almost three years.

She won her first WTA Tour title in the Swedish Open at Båstad, partnering Quirine Lemoine. In the on-court television interview after the win, Lemoine explained that it was even more special because the two had been friends since they were ten years old.

2018: Return to French Open

She returned to the French Open after four years of absence at Roland Garros.

2019: Record ITF titles in a calendar year

After winning the $25k event in Orlando, Florida in November, Arantxa Rus created history by claiming her tenth ITF singles title of the year, the most in any one calendar year for men or women.
