Transcript NOW BROADSIDE HOUSTON CHAPTER NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN Vol. 4, No. 10 BROADSIDE October 1973 BILLIE JEAN DOES IT! (Riggs lacks balls to beat King) The Battle of the Sexes is over. In one of the most publicized sports events in history, Billie Jean King trounced Bobby Riggs in three straight sets, 6-4, 6-3, 6-3. Over 30,000 people were on hand at the Astrodome to witness the event and it was seen by millions on television throughout the world. King scored points in the opening ceremony. To the accompaniment of a loud fanfare, she was borne into the arena in a sedan chair carried by four somewhat musclebound men clad only in brief white skirts and sandals. The sedan chair was preceded by another man carrying a large jeweled feather fan. Riggs made his entry in a ricksha pulled by several women. The two contestants exchanged gifts at courtside prior to the match. Riggs presented King with a large Sugar Daddy (a giant candy sucker) and King reciprocated by giving Riggs a baby pig. The players exchanged a few practice shots and the match began. King won the first game but Riggs came back strong and led 3-2 at the end of the fifth game. However, he was beginning to sweat profusely and, during breaks in the game, his right hand repeatedly went down to hover protectively over his genitals. King went on to win the first set and from then on it was just a matter of time. Riggs used all his trick shots (lobs, spins, corkscrews or whatever) only to find King returning the shots with a power he could not match. Several times she placed her shots so beautifully that she caught him across court, running the wrong way. King treated the audience to a display of superb skill. She used the best backhand in the business to great advantage. Unfortunately, Riggs' performance didn't live up to his advance publicity. At one point during the third set Riggs failed to return to the court, complaining of hand cramps. After being soundly booed by the audience he returned, only to miss thirteen of his first serves during the last three games. He was clearly exhausted and King won the match easily. continued
