Which song did Elton John write as a tribute to tennis legend Billie Jean King?

Answer:

"Philadelphia Freedom"

"Philadelphia Freedom" is a song released by Elton John in 1975. The song was written as a tribute to Elton John's friend, tennis star Billie Jean King, who was a member of the Philadelphia Freedoms professional tennis team. At the time, King had just been ranked the "World Number 1 women's player" for the fifth time in the previous seven years. The label on the vinyl for this record reads "With Love to B.J.K. and the sound of Philadelphia." Although the song was released in 1975, the patriotic and uplifting lyrics meshed perfectly with the U.S. gearing up for the country's bicentennial celebration in July 1976.
