Maria Sharapova serves up a lot of leg at Battle of the Sexes premiere

09.18.2017by: Cherry Liquor
I don't watch a lot of tennis, so I'm mostly familiar with Maria Sharapova from the troubles she's had in recent years due to the drug testing that uncovered the medication she allegedly takes for a heart condition is also used for performance enhancement, which lead to her being suspended from playing for 2 years. One year has so far passed and Sharapova is still heavily sought after for everything other than playing tennis, posing for magazines and appearing at movie premieres. This particular premiere makes more sense for her to attend, considering that BATTLE OF THE SEXES is about the headline grabbing 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. King has always been a fascinating person, capturing attention with her fight for gender equality in her sport (when she won Wimbledon, she took home less than half what the male winner did), forming her own tennis league (listen to Elton John's "Philadelphia Freedom" and she's what he's singing about) to coming out in a time when it would break your career. I love that King was especially excited that Emma Stone was cast to play her in the movie, sounding like us Stone fan girls/boys do. So while I might not watch a lot of tennis, I'm definitely going to watch the movie.
