On May 13, 1973, tennis stars Bobby Riggs and Margaret Court face off in a $10,000 winner-take-all challenge match.

The 55-year-old Riggs, a tennis champion from the late 1930s and 40s who was notoriously skeptical of women’s talents on the tennis court, branded the contest a “battle of the sexes.”
