There was a time when Billie Jean King was one of the biggest sports stars on the planet.

The tennis great won countless tournaments, including 39 Grand Slam titles. In 1973, a goofy exhibition with 55-year-old Bobby Riggs was one of the hugest events of the decade, and they made a movie about it a few years ago.

She has done so much for women’s sports over the years. 

King is still making appearances and trying to promote women’s sports as much as she can.
