As a child Billie Jean King dreamt of winning the most prestigious tennis championship in the world. This was the beginning of a sporting career that would ultimately change the standing of women in society for ever.

Legends of Wimbledon - Billie Jean King chronicles the career of Americans crusading athlete whose contribution to Wimbledon during the late sixties and early seventies was immense. The influence she had on the tennis world was significant. After almost thirty years of competition on the manicured lawns of Wimbledon, Billie Jean retired with a total of twenty Wimbledon titles to her credit, more than any other player in the history of The Championships.

In this video Billie Jean King shares her experiences of taking on the worlds best as a teenager and the lessons she learnt on the way. Fellow Wimbledon Championships such as Ann Jones, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova and Pat Cash reveal the intensity and determination that brought such remarkable success. Today, Billie Jean remains an icon and continued to play an active part during the Wimbledon fortnight as a television commentator.

Legends of Wimbledon - Billie Jean King is a special portrait of one of the most courageous and extraordinary competitors of the 20th century, and captures the most endearing moments of her life, both on and off the tennis court.
