The idea of the movie
In the history of tennis were a lot of events, objects and personalities who have changed the understanding of the sport and the sport itself forced to change. The American edition “Tennis” sums up the past fifty years, noting the most striking and important objects. Tennis commentator Steve Tinor tells about the most significant match in the US, and perhaps the world’s history.
September 20, 1973, at the Astrodome stadium 30 thousand people watched as in the exhibition match Billie Jean creates history, throwing Bobby Riggs by balls. More ninety million people sited in front of their TV sets around the world. No one tennis match before or after do not collect such an audience. We can safely say forty years later that there is no so well discussed match.
As the basis was taken men’s size — five sets. By meeting with Riggs, Billy Jean was preparing more than seriously. In addition to the desire to make money, Billie Jean moved even sexist sentiment. One of the strongest tennis players of all time already openly showed their feminist views and struggled for so-called gender equality in the professional tour. All this together and give the result.
Riggs again tried to play virtually on one spot, but King that September night in Houston was unstoppable. She was not required five sets to win — 6: 4, 6: 3, 6: 3. Thus, King drew a line under the “battle of the sexes” — the organizer of the games, the famous Jack Kramer turned the shop. But if the success of a veteran in the game with King, Chris Evert was waiting for him whose prize fund would be equal to one million dollars already.
The accusations that it was a trick repeatedly hit on Riggs. The first one was announced a few hours after the completion of the match, and it is difficult to tell the year in which there was not a new one. The peak of the hype, raised around the “Battle of the Sexes” came in the mid-seventies but its echoes are heard now. Many fans still cannot believe what was happened on court and how the woman could beat the man on the court. Perhaps this is why Billie Jean is not shy to remind it to the international tennis community.
Interesting, both athletes early in career were motivated by the one person — P. Jones. Perry was called as the king of tennis. Jones loved his best players. E. Weiss and J. Kramer were high and nicely dressed, and, importantly, were born in California. King and Riggs did not fit under any of the items of the list. Perry did not hesitate to tell them that in person. Not surprisingly, both reacted the same way.
They said that he is a terrible man “He was more worried about the bloodline and suit of the beginner than his gaming skills. I was short, I did not have enough inventory shine, but I was never afraid to express my opinion to Perry about discrimination.
Even in the early eighties, Riggs tried to get revenge as told Billie Jean. However, the answer has always been strong “NO”. However, King valued determination.
“I like him, I really do” — says athlete. “Bobby is not letting up”
44 years later, it becomes clear that it is this trait united both of them.
