Billie Jean King would like to correct Obama

Posted By: Staff

Washington, Aug.13 (ANI): Tennis legend Billie Jean King has said that President Obama got it all wrong about her accomplishments when he said that she had won 12 Grand Slam titles, 101 doubles titles, 67 singles titles.

King, who was presented with the Medal of Freedom Wednesday, said Obama didn't get any of it right.

"They didn't get any of my facts right. Did you see all the - how many titles I won? I was cracking up," said King. "I thought it was adorable," she said.

Asked what Obama got wrong, she said, "Well the Grand Slam's at 39 not at 12."

"That's not what's important," she explained. So when Obama got it wrong, "I thought even was more cute...I go, 'Oh that's really sweet.' Like, just move on, get off the tennis stuff. Tennis was a platform." (ANI)
