Riggs v Court[ edit ] Riggs had been one of the world’s top tennis players in the s; he once held the top ranking and had won six major titles during his career. After he retired from professional tennis in , Riggs remained a master promoter of himself and of tennis. At the time in , Court was 30 years old and the top female player in the world. On the day of their match on May 13, [9] 5, fans came to a Mother’s Day match in Ramona, California. His quick victory 6—2, 6—1 landed Riggs on the cover of both Sports Illustrated and Time.

Riggs v King[ edit ] Paraphernalia from the Billie Jean King vs Bobby Riggs match Suddenly in the national limelight following his win over Court, Riggs taunted all female tennis players, prompting King to accept a lucrative financial offer to play Riggs in a nationally televised match in prime time on ABC that the promoters dubbed the “Battle of the Sexes. Riggs also placed many bets on and invested a lot of money in the match. At this point, King realized that she “had to win” given the importance of the match, [25] and broke right back and again in the tenth game to close out the set.

Rather than playing her own usual aggressive game, King mostly stayed at the baseline , easily handling Riggs’s lobs and soft shots, making him cover the entire court as she ran him from side to side and beat him at his own defensive style of play. After quickly failing from the baseline, where he had intended to play, Riggs dropped his comedic effect and showed a more serious demeanor, as he was forced to change to a serve-and-volley game. She hit a lot of short balls which Bobby could have taken advantage of had he been in shape.

I would never take anything away from Billie Jean—because she was smart enough to prepare herself properly—but it might have been different if Riggs hadn’t kept running around.
