Venus campaigned for equal prize money; it's so fitting that she wins the title..

...of it's first year. Venus acknowledged Billie Jean King's fight for equal prize money all those years and to finally have it happened is great.

Yep, and the fact that Billie was sitting right there was even better.

A cool £700,000 I believe...

'I had plenty of boyfriends and lots of affairs, but they got furious when I made my name. People would ring up and ask me out. I'd say: "But I'm writing." 'And they'd say: "I see. You're too grand for us now." 'And I'd say: "Actually, I've always been too grand for you."

How fitting and well deserved!! Couldn't happen to a sweeter person. Great that she also acknowledged BJK's long fought campaign and the AEAC club.

The two weeks anxiety and nervous tension was all worth it!!

I agree, it is fitting that she won plus that classic match she played against Lindsay possibly helped with the campaign also.
