2011: Billie Jean King Interview

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011

Hey Tennis Friends!

During this past World Team Tennis season, I included excerpts from an interview that I had with the legendary Billie Jean King.

In this report, I am including the expanded version of that interview, as it included Billie Jean’s insight into sports franchise ownership, the Royal Family at Wimbledon, and, even how our current Presidential Family embraces our sport!

Billie Jean King is knows her place in history, but, is refreshingly modest. When I had mentioned that I was slightly intimidated sitting so close to such a legend, she calmly said,
“Just think of me as a little public park kid from Long Beach. I’m a little eleven year old going ‘Which end of the racket do I hold?’ ”

Classic BJK!

The WTT season is over for 2011. Don’t miss out on next year’s season!
