Tennis Player
    (September 16, 1948- )
    Born in San Francisco, California
    Highest singles ranking: #3 (1970)
    Two-time runner-up at the US Open (1970-71)
    In women's doubles, won Wimbledon five times (1967-68,1970-71.1973) and the US Open four times (1967,1971,1974,1982)

    She was overshadowed by Billie Jean King, both as her frequent doubles partner and as a fellow advocate for paying female players the same prize money as male players.
    She called King 'the old lady' despite being her junior by only five years.
    Asked if she felt good about having helped make it possible for, say, Venus Williams to receive $2 million for winning a Grand Slam tournament, she replied, 'No, I'd rather have the $2 million myself.'
    She and her sister were raised by their great-uncle and aunt after their parents, immigrants from El Salvador, concluded they were financially unable to care for their children.
    Chris Evert said, 'She is the mother hen on the tour who organizes everything from breakfasts to Scrabble tournaments. She'd give you the shirt off her back if she liked you.'
    She said, 'I've always been a fighter, on and off the court. So I came at the right time in the mid-60s and 70s, when there was so much going on for women.'
