  • Biography

    Since playing her first WSA World Tour event back in 2004 at the age of 15, King quickly set about establishing herself as a genuinely promising talent.  She broke into the world’s top 100 in her first year of competition, but it was in 2008 that she really began to make large strides up the rankings.  In June of that year, she claimed her first WSA title, winning the North Island Championship in her home country of New Zealand.  She followed this with an excellent Australian Open run, in which she reached the semi-finals as No8 seed, to ensure a top50 place at the end of the year. 

       The following summer, King claimed an impressive four titles wins in succession. She won a national event in New Zealand, followed by the NSW Open, Victorian Open and Australian Open.  In the past two years King had risen over 60 ranking places, and her progress did not look to be slowing.  2010 saw the young player win the Texas Open as a non-seeded entry, beating well known faces Tania Bailey, Donna Urquhart, Dominique Lloyd-Walter and No1 seed Rachael Grinham in a startling title run, during which she dropped just two games. 

      King has had further impressive title challenges, finishing runner-up in the Greenwich Open in 2011 and 2012 against seeding, runner-up in the Atwater Cup in 2011 and reached the quarter-finals of the 2011 Malaysian Open as a qualifier, all of which has boosted the player to just shy of the WSA Top10. 

      An excellent 2012 saw the Kiwi has seen her steadily hold her position just outside the Top10 thanks to finishing runner-up in the Greenwich, Texas and Matamata Opens, as well as reaching the quarters of the British Open in May.  She continued to see improved results as the year progressed and the qualifier took the US Open by storm as she reached the semi-finals where she was just four-points short of beating Nicol David.  Following that, she won the Macau Open title and finished runner-up to Low Wee Wern in the following China Open.  After a positive year for the Kiwi, in which she has reached and held a career high of No.5 in the world rankings, she will be have been disappointed on her second round elimination in the World Open in December.

       2013 has been solid so far for King. Quarter final finishes at the Cleveland Classic & Allam British Open as well as reaching the Semi finals at the Texas Open and CIMB KL Open have helped maintain her ranking at No.5. She recently retained her New Zealand national title for a fourth year in a row.
