Csurgó won six singles and 17 doubles titles on the ITF tour in her career. On 20 November 1995, she reached her best singles ranking of world number 160. On 21 September 1998, she peaked at world number 84 in the doubles rankings.

Csurgó reached the second round in both women's singles and doubles at the 1996 Summer Olympics.[1] She wasn't originally entered in the singles event but was added when another competitor had to withdraw at the last minute. With only five minutes to take the court, she arrived at the match wearing her practice shorts and a T-shirt, and went on to defeat Aleksandra Olsza before falling to Kimiko Date in the second round.[citation needed]

Csurgó also reached the second round in three Grand Slam doubles tournaments. She made 16 appearances for the Hungary Fed Cup team.
