It was until the age of 15 that she began playing tennis competitively.
Gerulaitis and her brother teamed up at the 1975 US Open to make the quarter-finals of the mixed doubles.
Her best performance in a grand slam tournament came at the 1979 French Open, where she was a singles quarter-finalist. Beating Chris O'Neil in the first round, she started her second round match with a 6–0 first set against 14th seed Ilana Kloss, before her South African opponent retired hurt. In the third round she upset eighth seed Betty Stöve in straight sets, then was beaten in the quarter-finals by the only other American remaining in the draw, eventual tournament champion Chris Evert.
She competed on the WTA Tour until 1980.
