A cultural spectacle that resonates far beyond the tennis court.

With the rise of the sexual revolution and the women’s movement, the 1973 tennis match between World number one Billie Jean King and ex-champion player and hustler Bobby Riggs became one of the most watched sports events of all time.

In the meantime, off-court, each was fighting their own personal and complex battles; King with her sexuality and Riggs with his gambling demons.
