About Billie Jean King

Former American professional tennis player, Billie Jean King has an estimated net worth $20 million. She won 12 Grand Slam singles titles, 16 Grand Slam women's doubles titles, and 11 Grand Slam mixed doubles titles.

Billie Jean King dominated women's tennis for nearly two decades, retiring from professional play in 1984. She won her first Wimbledon title in 1962, beating top-seeded Margaret Smith. King won 20 Wimbledon titles, 6 of them singles. In 1973 she played men's player Bobby Riggs, who had publicly proclaimed no woman could beat him (the previous year he had beaten Court). The stunt was dubbed "The Battle of the Sexes," and when King trounced Riggs she became a feminist icon. Since retiring she's worked as a coach, television commentator and businesswoman.

King has been an advocate against sexism in sports and society. Born on November 22, 1943 in Long Beach, California, United States.
