Has anyone seen the movie "Battle of the Sexes"? It's based on the early 70's tennis match between Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King. Riggs boasted that a man would easily beat a woman, but King won the match in 3 sets, albeit Riggs was a senior player at the time and King was in her prime. That match was quite an event back in the day, and had a lot riding on it, though some say it was staged, but the publicity definitely made great strides in gaining acceptance for women's tennis.
