The 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs became the most watched televised sports event of all time. Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs were on opposites sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. 

With her husband urging her to fight for equal pay, the private King was also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, while Riggs gambled his legacy and reputation in a bid to relive the glories of his past.

The true story of the legendary 1973 tennis match billed as the "Battle of the Sexes" starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell premieres on MTN TV on Sunday 8 July at 22:00 (Novacinema1).
