Yet their unlikely ‘courtship’, in the midst of a social revolution, captured the imaginations of people around the world, empowered a generation, and changed sport forever.
Plot: Tennis star and women’s rights activist Billie Jean King won a total of 39 Grand Slam titles, but the biggest match of her career took place in 1973 against former men’s champion Bobby Riggs, a self-proclaimed male chauvinist pig who declared that, even at the age of 55, he could beat any woman in the world.

Instructive Documentary
BATTLE OF THE SEXES sketches in the background to what is still the most-watched tennis match of all time – the 1973 clash between Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King. Staged at the Houston Astrodome, it was prompted by Riggs’ boasts that he could beat any of the leading female tennis players of the time, and thereby prove that men were ‘naturally’ superior to women. The documentary includes extensive footage of Riggs’ interviews before the match took place; his views on women now seem incongruously out of date. By contrast Billie Jean King maintained her dignity, by refusing to become involved in the verbal debates either before or after the match. James Erskine’s film makes some inflated claims – that the match provided inspiration for the feminist movement of the early Seventies – but covers far stronger ground in its analysis of the revolution in women’s tennis taking place at that time. We have to admire King and her fellow-players for setting up a rebel tennis tour, in opposition to the US Tennis Association, as they demanded equal pay with their male counterparts. Despite numerous setbacks, their initiative proved so successful that it led to the formation of the WTA (Women’s Tennis Association) in 1973. King herself comes across as both dedicated yet relentless – for her, the Riggs match was not just about vanquishing a buffoon-like male, but rather an opportunity to prove the strength of women’s tennis as a whole. On the other hand, we feel sorry for her fellow-tennis player Margaret Court, who was patently not ready for the publicity ballyhoo surrounding her clash with Riggs, and lost her match badly. BATTLE OF THE SEXES is certainly an historical document, but one can’t help feeling that, while Riggs’ views are not overtly expressed these days in the media, there are plenty of men who share his opinions, despite four decades of feminist reform.

Excellent documentary
This documentary gives an excellent window into an interesting era of women’s rights and international tennis. It would have been all too easy for the creators to have painted Bobby Riggs as the bad guy, or Billie Jean King as some righteous zealot, but to their credit, both come out looking very human and likable. The film shows what a true champion King was. Incredibly skillful, disciplined and super-fit, she was well equipped to take on Riggs in his bold bit to defeat her and bid to prove men were superior players. It’s fascinating that in Riggs’ previous match against Margaret Court, Court is completely psyched out by Riggs, making ridiculous mistakes despite her proved record as a champion. In the lead up to her own match against Riggs, King is having none of that, laughing off Riggs’ grand claims and put-downs and showing a freakish ability to focus on the task at hand. Riggs is shown to have hauled himself up from a background of poverty and obscurity — he’s pugnacious and resourceful and persistent. We must note that some of his comments about women are offensive, but often he comes across in this film more as someone who enjoys stirring the pot, hogging the limelight and having a bit of fun. And making some money, of course. There is some genuine affection in some of his exchanges at press conferences with King. I deliberately hadn’t researched who won the final match, so I was thrilled when King holds the trophy high. Well, I am female. Despite the silliness and the politics around the event, there is a sense of real achievement and joy. In addition, the film’s coverage of how the women’s international tennis organisation was formed, and King’s key role in it, is fascinating. Overall, this film is great entertainment.
