Ashleigh Barty's amazing tribute to Jessica Moore

Asheligh Barty also won her doubles match at the Australian Open 2020, with Julia Goerges. They defeated the Australian Astra Sharma and Jessica Moore in straight sets, with the final score of 6-2 6-3. At the end of the match, Barty made an amazing tribute to her retiring countrywoman Jessica Moore: "A lot of you may not know but Jess is finishing up after the Australian Open.

It was really exciting for me to be able to share this moment with her. Jess got me back into the sport. She was my first partner when I came back a few years ago." Moore replied: "I really appreciate Ash's kind words.

It's an absolute pleasure to share the court with her. Obviously I would prefer as her partner. She's an unreal chick and it's unbelievable for us to have someone like her to look up to."
