Tennis career

2008–2009

Moore reached the second round of the 2008 Australian Open, where lost to Israeli 17th seed Shahar Pe'er. This made her the youngest Australian to win a match at the Australian Open since Jelena Dokić in 1999. Moore also reached the final of the 2008 Australian Open girls' singles, defeating future world No. 1 Simona Halep in the semifinals. In the final, she lost to Arantxa Rus. She was the first Australian to make the final in 13 years. [1]

After recovering from a shoulder injury, Moore won both the French Open and Wimbledon junior doubles titles with Slovenia's Polona Hercog. At the final Grand Slam tournament of the year, she reached the second round of the US Open after defeating American wildcard Melanie Oudin. However, she lost in the second round to Anna-Lena Grönefeld of Germany.

Moore was awarded a wildcard into the 2009 Australian Open after improving her ranking up 230 places to 140 in 2008. [2] In the first round she defeated fellow wildcard Christina McHale, before losing to 12th seed Flavia Pennetta.

2011

In February, Moore and Noppawan Lertcheewakarn reached the final of the Malaysian Open where they lost to Dinara Safina and Galina Voskoboeva. This was Moore's first WTA final.

Moore then competed in WTA Tour qualifying events and $100,000 and $50,000 ITF events up until July with a win-loss record of 10 wins to 12 losses. She then decided that after a few years of constantly being on the road, she decided to take an indefinite break and experience what it was like to live an ordinary life. [3]

Since 2015

Moore commenced 2015 by losing in qualifying rounds of the Apia International Sydney and Australian Open before returning to the Australian ITF circuit, where she made three consecutive quarterfinals in Clare, Port Pirie and Mildura (in February and March). Moore then headed to the USA and continues to play on the ITF circuit. Following a quarterfinal result at Indian Harbour Beach, Moore's ranking re-entered the top 300. [4]

In July 2016, she finally realized her first WTA title. Partnering Varatchaya Wongteanchai from Thailand, she won the title at the Bucharest Open, defeating Romanian Alexandra Cadanțu and Katarzyna Piter from Poland in the final in straight sets.
