Hobbs represented Great Britain in the Wightman Cup and Federation Cup from 1978 to 1989. She was ranked as the top British player for periods during her 12-year career and achieved a best WTA ranking of 33 in singles and 6 in doubles.

Although primarily a doubles specialist, reaching the final of the Australian Open in 1983 and the US Open in 1984 with Wendy Turnbull and the Australian Open Mixed Doubles in 1987 with Andrew Castle, she won singles titles at Indianapolis in 1983 and in Auckland in 1985 and the British Closed in 1985.

Hobbs' industrious serve and volley game earned her singles victories over Virginia Wade, Rosie Casals, Jo Durie, Carling Bassett, and Zina Garrison, among other top ranked players of her time. She now works as a tennis coach and consultant in the area of sports psychology.
