"I was eleven when I took up tennis at the public parks in Long Beach, California. The first day I hit the tennis ball I knew I’d found what I loved doing. There was something special about hitting the ball, the way it felt. There wasn’t a doubt in my mind."
– Billie Jean King, from 'Particular Passions: Talks with Women Who Shaped Our Times'
