On September 20, 1973 Billie Jean King played a tennis match against Bobby Riggs. The match was called "The Battle of the Sexes". The match was played in Texas at the Houston Astrodome. Riggs had publicly stated that women's tennis was inferior to men's tennis and that no women could beat him in tennis. The prize money for the match was $100,000 with the entire amount going to the winner. King easily defeated Riggs and became a hero in women's tennis.
