Joelle King is the leading New Zealander on the PSA World Tour and has done well to come back from a serious Achilles injury sustained in 2014.
She won her first Tour title in 2008 at the North Island Championships and followed that up with three further titles a year later.
2010 was a fine year for King who won the prestigious Texas Open and claimed gold and silver medals at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
She was elevated into the world's top 10 for the first time in 2011 and moved into the top five while also claiming the Macau Open in 2012.
A quiet year followed but she made a winning start to 2014 as she captured the Greenwich Open in January 2014 after a hard-fought victory over Low Wee Wern.
A ruptured achilles tendon saw her fall outside the world’s top 50 - but she made her return to the Tour after a year out in 2015's British Open where she lost out to Laura Massaro in the quarter-final.
She won the Australian Open three months later and followed that up by reaching the final of the Carol Weymuller Open in October 2015, eventually breaking back into the world’s top 10 in April 2016.
King rounded off the 2015/16 season by downing Joshna Chinappa to win the HKFC International and started the 2016/17 campaign in strong fashion after lifting the Macau Open crown in September 2016.
King backed this up with semi-final appearances at the Netsuite Open, where she was beaten by Laura Massaro and at the Texas Open where she came up short against Australian Donna Urquhart.
