September 20 Battle of the Sexes, Houston, Texas, United States (Indoors)
Venue: The Astrodome

Billie Jean King d. Bobby Riggs 6-4 6-3 6-3

Only an exhibition in theory, this match remains to this day the most heavily covered and attended (30, 472 watched-a record for one match) in tennis history. Billie Jean went from star to a mega-star overnight. ABC bid $700,000 to televise the affair, selling commercial time at $85,000 per minute.

The match itself was anticlimatic after the introductions, when "Sugar Daddy" Riggs was brought on court by a bevy of beautiful babes. Billie Jean was carried in on a litter by topless muscled hunks. She gave "the male chauvanist pig" a toy piggy, then gave him the boot in straight sets. The match helped propel the U.S. tennis boom of the 1970s
