Billie Jean has done so much for tennis and I idolize her! She is my all time favorite! I am hoping that she has some other fans here!
Love her or hate her-King has been the most influential tennis personality EVERWhat a competitor. What an inspiration. What a bitch
She has done sooo much for Womens tennis/tennis in general. She definately gets a CHEER FROM US!:worship:Rollo said:Funny how views change isn't it Tennisvideos? By the time I found tennis King was past her prime, so I always cheered for her. Her upset of Tracy Austin at Wimbledon in 1982 was a feast of contrasts in age and palying style, the type we don't see today. Then she went on and almost beat Chris Evert in the semis!
My all-time LOL quote about Billie Jean comes from Pam Shriver's 'Passing Shots".

I'll look through my old World Tennis magazines- it seems to me I read something on that recently- I'm always reading and re-reading the old magazines. It's so much more interesting than today's fluff. World Tennis was great!Andy T said:BJK said one of her most satistying moments in tennis was winning her first VS tournament in Richmond in the autumn of 1970. Does anyone have any details about this?
