After Hy-Boulais did it in 1992, Canada did not have another woman to survive into the second week at the French Open until Aleksandra Wozniak did it in 2009.[1]

Hy-Boulais represented her new country at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, where she was eliminated in the second round by the number one seed Monica Seles. Hy-Boulais reached her highest ranking in the WTA Tour on March 8, 1993, when she became the number 28 of the world.

Hy-Boulais's daughter Isabelle is a top Canadian tennis prospect.[2]
