In her first professional match since the 2014 US Open, Ash Barty has scored a win.
The Australian teen, making a comeback to tennis after a 17-month hiatus, teamed with Jess Moore to beat Sally Peers and Barbora Stefkova 6-2 6-2 in the first round of the $25,000 Perth Tennis International #1 ITF event.
Barty is expected to make her singles comeback at a $25,000 event in Mildura later in February.
