Baylon started playing tennis at age five.
Baylon's best result at a Grand Slam singles event was reaching the quarterfinal on four occasions. At the 1964 Wimbledon Championships she reached her first quarterfinal after defeating seventh-seeded Jan Lehane in the third round but retired against first-seeded Margaret Smith. At the 1965 French Championships she was seeded ninth and lost in the quarterfinal to Smith in two sets. Later that year at the U.S. National Championships Baylon was seeded eighth and was defeated in the quarterfinal by third-seeded Nancy Richey. At the 1966 U.S. National Championships Baylon was seeded sixth and again reached the quarterfinals in which she won just a single game against second-seeded and eventual champion Maria Bueno.
Between 1964 and 1966 she played in four ties for the Argentine Fed Cup team winning three matches and losing four.
In 1967 she married Peruvian Bartolomé Puiggros and subsequently lived in Peru for 25 years. The couple had three sons.
