The USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center

I must have have my head up my butt for quite some time. I just now found out that the USTA named the National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows after Billie Jean King! I know that they had been discussing it and that there was some concern over the possibility of selling the naming rights, but I had not realized that they had gone done it!
I think it's great! It's about time that they've done something like this to honour her!
