Re: Billie Jean Moffitt King career results

Sometime after Billie Jean lost to Evonne Goolagong in the 1971 Wimbledon semifinals, she said, "I'm head and shoulders above her and everyone else. Now I just have to prove it." Does anyone know where this quote appeared?

Re: Billie Jean Moffitt King career results

I think this comment was made towards the end of the year, when Evonne got the number one world ranking and Billie Jean was placed at number two. Of course, this was before computer rankings, so the year-end world rankings were selected by journalists. Can anyone help me locate this quote?
