It is the chemistry between Billie Jean King and Rosie Casals that made them a legendary duo.

Together, King and Casals, a San Francisco native whose family came from El Salvador, won seven major titles, including five at Wimbledon.

But their chemistry went beyond the tennis court. King and Casals helped spearhead a group of nine women players who helped start the professional women’s tennis tour, which has evolved today into the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA).

For National Hispanic Heritage Month, Casals talks about what made her and King so special.
