Published to Sports on Earth on July 6, 2017
LONDON — The movie about Billie Jean King and her match against Bobby Riggs in 1973, about what was — at the time and maybe now — the most famous moment of a great American life, has its premiere in London on Sunday. Emma Stone plays Billie Jean. Steve Carell plays Riggs. It’s called “Battle of the Sexes,” just because that’s what King vs. Riggs was, a tennis match that rallied and roused and inspired women at that time in America.
