Billie Jean King Day

One of the all-time tennis greats helped the Austin Aces kick off their second season of World Team Tennis. King is a co-founder of the league.

King had some fun with Mayor Steve Adler at City Hall and for all that she has accomplished, she accepted the honor with a humble spirit.

King says, "Well Mayor Adler surprised me when he did a Proclamation Day and named it Billie Jean King Day, that's really unbelievable, so I kind of went into shock...Anytime my name is mentioned or I see my name on something, then it equals responsibility. I'm still not finished, I got a lot to do."
