Trailblazers : the unmatched story of women's tennis

King, Billie Jean (author.). Starr, Cynthia, (author.).

Summary: "In celebration of the Women's Tennis Association's 50th anniversary, this updated and expanded edition--based on the 1988 original We Have Come a Long Way: The Story of Women's Tennis--includes more than 250 photographs and 33 years' worth of stories about inspiring women and their achievements. The book arrives 53 years after King and eight other women players broke with the male tennis establishment and launched their own professional tour. With this gorgeous, photographically forward, and deeply moving ode to women's tennis, King and coauathor Cynthia Star will continue the remarkable story in which King has played such an integral role, shedding new light on barriers that were overcome and milestones that were achieved. Women's tennis today has never been more popular across the globe and, as this book demonstrates, has never been more diverse and inclusive."
