Elton Plays Tennis Every Day While on Tour

Tennis-loving pop star Sir Elton John has called game, set and match on his regular court battles with former champion Billie Jean King - because she's no longer a challenge for him.
The racket-wielding rocker is obsessed with the sport and makes sure he plays a few sets every morning, even when he is on tour.
But his games with former professional King are no longer a regular feature - because Sir Elton is too competitive and tries to beat her each time.
King, who won 12 Grand Slam singles titles during her career, tells the New York Daily News, "He has a great forehand. I don't think a lot of people realize that he plays on tour every morning.
"I don't play with him anymore because he doesn't like to hit it back and forth with me. He always wants to hit it away from you and he wants to challenge you. He's very crafty and mean."
