Apart from the thoroughly deserved respect that she garners due to her on-court achievements, the 67-year-old is also loved by many due to her mild-mannered nature. However, the 67-year-old at times gets annoyed by this assumption. Once in an interview, she spoke about how she dislikes carrying the good girl image.

“I know I’m no angel. I’m not as goody-two-shoes as people think, I’m a normal woman. I’ve dated a lot of guys, I’ve had a few drinks. I’ve told dirty jokes, I’ve cursed, I’ve been rude to my parents. There’s nothing in my life, no skeletons in my closet that people should be so shocked about. But I’ve lived a normal life,” she said.
