How about the time my friend's and I were at a WTT Sets match and had the audacity to chear for the other team and get on the Sets? Ms. King, the person all for crowd noise and fan involvement, sent a couple of "team officials" aka goons, up to tell us to shut up. Don't remember the year but probably 1975.
As for King v Court, as far as I know they have always pretty much hated each other. They were top rivals for years but on top of that they also both despised everything the other stood for. King was big in the founding of the Slims tour, Court wanted no part of it. King was the leader of the "alternative life style" crowd, Court is straight. King is still somewhat in the public eye so she has more of a forum for her views. As for making excuses, the top players for excuses over the last 30 years - King, Navratilova, Mandlikova and Graf. Court and Evert, when they lost they did so with dignity and class. Also part of being the greatest of all-time.
