Leilani Rorani, 2002

Leilani Rorani winds up her smash against Australia's Rachael Grinham in the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester. Although she lost the women's singles match pictured, Rorani shared gold at the games in both the women's doubles (with Carol Owens) and mixed doubles (with Glen Wilson). In 2002 she also retired from professional play, married and became Leilani Rorani rather than Leilani Joyce.
