In her legendary tennis career, King captured 39 Grand Slam singles, doubles and mixed doubles titles, including a record 20 Wimbledon Championships.
The Billie Jean King Cup is the world's largest annual international competition in women’s sports, and is often called the world cup of women’s tennis. The Cup was formerly known as the Federation Cup, then the Fed Cup, and had its origins in 1963, the 50th anniversary of the International Tennis Federation. The Cup was renamed in 2020, making it the first global team event named after a woman.
