If pressure is a privilege—and surely it is—Billie Jean King has not slowed down since her monumental defeat of Bobby Riggs in the historic, so-called "Battle of the Sexes" 40 years ago. Here's a sampling of the notable tweets (or tweets from notables) that she received on Friday, September 20—or, in Maria Sharapova's case, a day later but meaning no less than the rest.

What's your favorite among the tweets? Says here Coco Vandeweghe captured the seriousness of the milestone moment and the playful wit of Billie Jean herself in just one tweet.
