A fascinating look at a sporting event that actually mattered. It's easy to be appalled by Riggs chauvinism now so it's a shame the film makes little effort to show if this was normal behaviour for the time (sadly it probably was). It's also depressing that very little has improved in 40 years (especially in the technology sector where I work and this kind of sexism is still rife). A lot of the film isn't really about tennis until the end which focuses solely on the match which feels like a shame.
