Jessica Moore (born 16 August 1990) is an Australian professional tennis player.

Moore has won one doubles titles on the WTA tour, as well as 4 singles and 24 doubles titles on the ITF circuit in her career. On 27 October 2008, she reached her best singles ranking of world number 132. On 18 July 2006, she peaked at world number 88 in the doubles rankings.[1]

Playing for Australia at the Fed Cup, Moore has a win–loss record of 1–2.[2]

Tennis career[edit]

2008–2009[edit]

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, in which she lost to Arantxa Rus. She was the first Australian to make the final in 13 years.[3]

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, Moore reached the second round of the 2008 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 wilcard into the 2009 Australian Open after improving her ranking up 230 places to 140 in 2008.[4] In the first round she defeated fellow wildcard Christina McHale, before losing to twelfth seed Flavia Pennetta.

2011[edit]

In February Moore and Noppawan Lertcheewakarn reached the final of the 2011 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 ten wins to twelve losses. Moore 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.[5]

2015[edit]

Moore commenced 2015 by losing in qualifying rounds of the 2015 Apia International Sydney and 2015 Australian Open before returning to the Australian ITF circuit, where she made 3 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 quarter final result at Indian Harbour Beach, Moore's ranking re-entered the top 300.[6]
