TRAILER: 'The Battle of the Sexes'

Absolutely cannot wait to see "The Battle of the Sexes," the just-released acclaimed documentary about the infamous 1973 match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs.Although I'm well-aware of the match and its significance, it was a little before my time -- I started watching tennis avidly when Tracy Austin made a splash at the 1977 U.S. Open -- so I can't wait to see it all on the big screen! Readers might remember I ball-boyed for Billie Jean in the early '80s and got to have a great chat with her at the airport a couple years ago. BTW: Andy Murray and Serena Williams are in the news this week for their proposed "battle of the sexes" (sort of), but for the uninitiated, you might find it interesting to know that Serena -- and Venus -- both got creamed by a man ranked  203 who drank and smoked before going on court. (It's about the disparity of strength.)
