Description:
BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES (RECENT) (REUTERS) (SOUNDBITE) (English) BILLIE JEAN KING, ON LACK OF INVESTMENT IN WOMEN'S SPORTS, SAYING: "The men, in particular, do not want to invest in us, we need men and women who will be willing to invest long-term, who will be willing to lose money the way they do in men's sports, for us to do it. And what happens in women's sports, they'll give us a couple years, and if we don't make money right away, they go, 'we're dropping it'. Well, you look at men's soccer, they've been losing money forever, and maybe they're making money now, but (Philip) Anschutz (billionaire sports mogul who founded Major League Soccer and multiple teams in the league), and all the people who are willing to lose millions and millions and millions on it, to see it actually happen. And they'll persevere year after year after year after year to do this. We don't have that in women's sports. We need women to step up and and invest in us."
