Musgrave was born in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia. Although she won the Junior Australian Open Singles title in 1994 (the same year that Martina Hingis won the French and Wimbledon Junior titles), Trudi is a doubles specialist, having been a finalist at the Wimbledon Girls Doubles in 1995. Her highest ranking in doubles was 62 (in 2003).

At the peak of her career, in 2004 Trudi suffered a catastrophic knee injury while on the court during a doubles final. Most doctors thought she would not recover. A full knee reconstruction and intense physiotherapy meant that she was able to resume her career at the Australian Open in January 2005. Despite having access to a 'special ranking' that allowed her to enter major tournaments using her ranking at the time of her injury, she was unable to immediately return to the level she was before her injury. However, she has begun to regain some of her momentum and has won 2 ITF doubles titles in 2006 with a 20–10 win–loss record for the year.

Because Trudi is based in Newcastle (a city where there no major tournaments are played), she spends up to 40 weeks a year living out of a suitcase on the circuit. When she is away from home, to make the most of her time she usually plays in a tournament every week with only an occasional rest break. Because of this, most years Trudi has played the most, or has been among those who have played the most, tournaments of any of the women on the women's tennis circuit in a 12-month period.

As of 6 April 2008, Trudi has won 39 ITF doubles titles in her career and 3 ITF singles titles.

Trudi retired in February 2008, Trudi coached for 1 year at the cessnock tennis club in the Hunter Valley, NSW. But did not return for the 2009 season.

Trudi retired from tennis 2011.
