|Billie Jean King||Participant|
Billie Jean King became one of the few female sports stars who transcended her sport to become a cultural icon, thanks in large part to her victory over Bobby Jones in the famous tennis "Battle of the Sexes." Legends of Wimbledon: Billie Jean King documents her phenomenal success at the sport-s most historic tournament. In additin to footage of her playing, the video features interviews by other champions discussing her influence.

Billie Jean King, throughout her life, has done more to change the landscape of athletics. She may not have been the greatest athlete, yet she stands in same field with Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Roberto Clemente, and Muhammad Ali. And for a female athlete who has transcended the boundaries of their profession it is only fitting that people (even those - like myself - who have never watched her play) can remember her just by watching this DVD. It is a reminder of what children can do in their lives if they could just dream a dream that Billie Jean has lived, and they can accomplish a lot.
