Bio Atkinson was the daughter of a Brooklyn, New York physician. What she lacked in size-only five feet tall - Juliette Atkinson more than compensated for with wonderful court sense, exquisite timing, and surpassing power. Altogether, she had her name engraved on ten United States Championship trophies, winning the singles three times and the doubles on seven occasions.

She won five U.S. Championships doubles titles in a row with three different partners. Both natives of Maplewood, New Jersey, she and her sister Kathleen Atkinson partnered to win the last two titles. Also the sisters twice faced each other in the semi finals of the singles competition, the first sisters to do so before the Williams sisters' final in 2001. She won three mixed doubles titles with Edwin P. Fischer.
In 1897 and 1898, she virtually dominated women's tennis in America. Her run of success did not stop there as Atkinson continued securing important doubles titles during the early years of a new century

In 1896 and 1898 she won the Niagara International Tennis Tournament. She won the Canadian Championships three times in a row, 1896, 1897 and 1898.

In both 1899 and 1901, Atkinson won the doubles title and reached the singles final at the tournament now known as the Cincinnati Masters. She won the 1899 doubles title with Myrtle McAteer (falling to McAteer that year in the singles final) and the 1901 doubles title with Marion Jones Farquhar (falling in the singles final to Winona Closterman).

She was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1974.
