I have several times quoted from an old Cindy Schmerler article she did in WorldTennis just before it crashed at the beginning of the 90s. In it, she asked a very nice cross-section of women tennis greats who they most hated to play, and why. The answer I have quoted more than once in previous threads was that of Martina Navratilova: "Billie Jean King knew exactly what to do to pick my game apart, and she did it!"


Interestingly, Billie Jean King's response was: "Margaret Court and Chris Evert, just because they were who they were."

That answer leads me to believe she's not saying the she couldn't beat them, or that they knew how to pick her game apart, etc., but that they were the only players who could, simply through their presence on the other side of the net, actually have an effect on Billie Jean's play. It takes a lot to get this kind of response out of the pround champion that Ms. King is, and I think it's a pretty fair assessment.

The racquet, which cost $8, was purchased from Brown's Sporting Goods on Atlantic Avenue in Long Beach. <LI style="LEFT: -20px; POSITION: relative">At age 11, Betty picked Billie Jean up from a free tennis lesson at Houghton Park in Long Beach and Billie told her "I am going to be No. 1 in the world." Betty thought that was nice and then reminded Billie Jean she had homework to complete and piano lessons to practice. <LI style="LEFT: -20px; POSITION: relative">Playing in a tournament at the Los Angeles Tennis Club in 1955, Billie Jean was barred from posing for a group picture of junior tennis players because she was wearing tennis shorts and not a tennis skirt. <LI style="LEFT: -20px; POSITION: relative">King was one of nine players who broke away from the tennis establishment and accepted $1 contracts from tennis promoter Gladys Hellman in Houston in 1970.

This year's event celebrates 25 years of equal prize money at the US Open. <LI style="LEFT: -20px; POSITION: relative">Life Magazine named Billie Jean one of the 100 most important Americans of the 20th Century.

This thread is woefully shy on photos of the legendary Billie Jean. I've decided to do something about it:

Alfa-by the looks of it it's Billie Jean playing either Wightman or Fed Cup, circa 1976-78. The pocket flags are very cool.

It was from Fed Cup, and is actually a photo they used to advertise Fed Cup in a magazine quite a few years ago. I'm going through my stack of old magazines in storage, and picking out good photos and then just tossing them. They've been cluttering up my storage space for too long now!

and engaged in her favorite thing to do on a tennis court- rushing the net:

Those horn rimmed glasses are A RIOT. When Billie Jean first became a star and then married Larry King she got a lot of headlines like "Queen of the Courts Meets her King", etc.

There is a new book out which explores the whole King-Riggs match and it's impact on society. It's called

I'm reading bits and pieces of Necessary Spectacle at the moment.


The book shows how important the King-Riggs match was for tennis and equal rights in the 1970s; but whar I like is how it while it lauds Billie; it doesn't make villains out of Bobby (one seriously funny man) and Margaret Court.

Billie Jean has a had the same girlfriend for more than twenty years-Ilana Kloss. I wasn't surprised at that (King and Kloss looked like a pair when Alfa and I saw them at trhe Philly event in 2004); but I was surprised at how long lasting their relationship had been.

Reading the book you get the sense BJK finally is at peace with herself.

Good for her

She's also going to be at the Gay Games in Chicago this July. At first people thought she was an early sign-on because they saw "Billy Bean" the gay baseball player's name, but the Chicago native has now officially signed on:

I posted this in the thread about her upcoming HBO special-but this is such a good pic it's worth posting twice. She has a Lily Tomlin-like look in this one.
