LOVE what Billie-Jean said about Rios!!!
Channel Seven had a little interview with Billie-Jean King today before the women's match, and the subject of Rios' comments on the game came up.
Well, Billie-Jean was nice and direct, telling the reporter that he is a player who has not fulfilled his potential, and that often when a player of his low calibre are frustrated with their game, they take it out on others.
She pointed out that the real champions in sport lift everyone a level higher, not try to down-grade one sex to a lower level as Rios has so pathetically attempted to do, whether he consiously tried to or not.
Gotta love Billie-Jean!
