Tennis legend Billie Jean King is being inducted into the Rogers Cup Tennis Hall of Fame. It’s been forty years since she put women’s tennis on the map by beating Bobby Riggs in the legendary Battle of the Sexes and forty years since she started the Women’s Tennis Association. King says there are still battles to be won. She says even if things were perfect for both genders, they’d still want to make things better. For instance; she says the battle for equal prize money for both sexes at tennis tournaments is not about the money, it’s about the message of equality that it sends.
