The Tennis Pro Who Wouldn’t Give Up: 

Did you know that Wimbledon was the last of the four grand slam tennis championships to grant equal pay for women and that a five-time Wimbledon champion, Venus Williams, worked relentlessly to make it happen?  With the 2013 US Open tennis championships (granted equal pay in 1973) starting in just a few days, we thought it was worthy to peek back at how she did it and to honor her for playing a role in ensuring that women got equal pay at the pro level.  She proved that when a door shuts in your face again and again, you should never give up.  All you have to do is follow the three R’s: Regroup, Retool, Re-strategize and try again until it lets you in!

Good luck to all the men and women playing in the 2013 US Open tennis championships!  We’ll be watching, will you?
