Chat with Billie Jean King!
Widely considered one of the greatest tennis players of all time, King won 12 Grand Slam singles finals, including Wimbledon six times and the U.S. Open four times. A pioneer in women's tennis, King's win over Bobby Riggs in the "Battle of the Sexes" was a major event in the development of the sport as a whole.
King will also be on hand to answer questions about the BNP Paribas Showdown for the Billie Jean King Cup. The event is a one-night only special tournament, featuring a showdown at Madison Square Garden between Ana Ivanovic, Jelena Jankovic, Serena Williams, and Venus Williams. Designed to honor King's place in tennis history and promote youth tennis as part of "Tennis Night in America", the Showdown will be broadcast live on HBO at 7:30 PM ET on March 2, 2009.
