BJK doc.

Hey all, Just wondering if anyone had seen the new Billie Jean King documetary on HBO?! Interested to hear people's opinions if they had seen it. I just watched it early this morning and I thought it was great! I knew what a pioneer she was but I really didn't know all of the specific things she did! Plus I had forgotten how gorgeous Chrissie was when she was young...WOW>P

I saw it. I thought it was really good and very enjoyable. And you don't have to be into tennis to like it; you just have to care about what happens to women.

Is this an old documentary or a new one, there was a documentary of her a few years ago for British TV.
There was an interview with her and also her parents, I remember Chrissie and Rosie Casels were in it too.
It was a very enjoyable Documentary.

I saw it and it was really good. I saw one a few years ago for BBC and they're pretty much the same thing. It was nice to see something about her.

It was wonderful, very inspirational and gave me an even greater respect for the woman who really put women's tennis together

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier
NEVER say "I don't care who wins, I just want good tennis"
