Billie Jean King’s US Open about much more than tennis
Published to USA Today on September 6, 2018
Billie Jean King is good at many things. Getting enough sleep isn’t one of them. “When I sleep in now, I’m still catching up from the 1970s,” she says.
The other night, King spoke at three corporate events at the US Open at the national tennis center that bears her name, then went home, saw that Rafael Nadal was still playing but had lost the first set, 6-0, to Austria’s Dominic Thiem, and turned off the light, intending to go to sleep.
