Not a great name if you are male

I will always see Billie Jean King as a man hating feminist.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Re: Billie Jean King National Tennis Center

Re: Billie Jean King National Tennis Center

You see it as ruining the name, just because her name is long? Do you realize how ridiculous that sounds?

Oy, I don't have the time for this. Carry on
