A precocious competitor, Moore made it to the final of the 1892 U.S. Championships at the age of 16, losing to Mabel Cahill in the first fiveset match contested between two women. In 1896, she collected the first of her four titles in that tournament. Few women players were as successful as Moore at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth centuries. She made her presence known in singles, doubles and mixed doubles, and established herself as one of the premier players of her time.
