    During her entire career, she won only one singles title.
    When Bud Collins tried to nickname her 'Big Bad Betty,' she picked him up, flipped him over ,and told him to never call her that again.
    She celebrated a World Team Tennis victory by picking up partner Chris Evert and twirling her around in the air (1976).
    In the late 1960s, a malfunctioning thyroid gland sidelined her for 18 months; although she was told she should never play tennis again, she came back and had her best years on the circuit.
    She was a versatile doubles player, winning tournaments partnered with, among others, Billie Jean King, Margaret Court Smith, Martina Navratilova, Chris Evert, Evonne Goolagong, Tracy Austin and Pam Shriver.
    After retiring from tennis, she became a successful photographer.
    She inspired the name of the Dutch indie rock band Bettie Serveert ('Betty Serves').
