Billie Jean King – a Force for Good
Published to Wimbledon on July 4, 2018
In ideal world, everyone on the planet would get to meet Billie Jean King. In fact, everyone on the planet would have 10 minutes of one-to-one chat with her. Unfortunately, with a world population of 7.6 billion, that would take – I think – 144,596 years, so it’s not terribly likely. That is a great pity, because to meet Billie Jean is to experience her greatest gift – greater, astonishingly, than the tennis which earned her 12 Grand Slam singles titles, including six at Wimbledon between 1966 and 1975.
