“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Bobby Riggs (American Athlete)
Robert Larimore Riggs was a 1930s–40s tennis player who was the World No. 1 or the co-World No. 1 player for three years, first as an amateur in 1941, then as a professional in 1946 and 1947. It is quite possible that he was also, unofficially, the best player in 1945 as well. He played his first professional tennis match on December 26, 1941.
After being mostly forgotten for many years, he gained far more fame in 1973 at the age of 55 by challenge matches against two of the top female players in the world. "The Battle of the Sexes" match against Billie Jean King was one of the most famous tennis events of all time.
