Billie Jean King's Height
5ft 4 ¼ (163.2 cm)
Former American Tennis player. In a newspaper (Eugene Registrar Guard, November 1972) she is quoted saying: "I used to tell people I was 5 foot 6 but then I got measured and found out I'm only about 5-4". In 2007 when asked how tall, she said "I’m not sure. I think I’m 5’5”. I’m probably shrinking, too".

Most professional athletes are generally cognizant of their peak height, especially because they’re measured by physicians ‘more frequently’ than most non-athletes are throughout their careers. Most female tennis players retire young, well before the age they begin to shrink. Billie Jean King was 5’6” (peak) while she played tennis. Sometime after she retired she had a double knee replacement. She’s probably 5’3” to 5’4” today.

I remember reading that she was 5'6" at her peak. It must have been because she gave the wrong information.

I would have said 5ft 4, Evonne Goolagong who played when she did was even smaller I think, I wonder if they would stand a chance against the tall women players of today?
