thanks for the thread....there were quite few of these battles played in the past, but it seems that they are not so popular nowadays...the King vs Riggs was one of the most successfull events ever shown on TV !

Mexico is my house, Italy is my heart....

Bobby Riggs def. Margaret Court
6-2, 6-1
May 13, 1973

This "Mother's Day Massacre" spurred BJ King to take on Riggs herself in her own historic match.

Ike Turner used to beat Tina all the time, until she dug one of her pumps into his crotch in the back of a car in Dallas, Texas and ran away to Cher's apartment in LA. Now she's retired and living in a beautiful house in Provence, and one of the most well-respected performers of our lifetime. I'd say she won that match.

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.
