Billie Jean King is making some news this week. 

The tennis icon is out and about discussing her long-time friendship with singer Elton John. Her trending status on the internet reminded us of when TheStreet talked with her late last year.

Meanwhile, check out our recent interview with Nascar's Danica Patrick on the topic of workplace diversity.
