Billie Jean’s list of pioneering accomplishments is long. Billie Jean might be most famous for crushing former Wimbledon champion Bobby Riggs in the “Battle of the Sexes.” The experience is being captured in two upcoming movies, one with Paul Giamatti and Elizabeth Banks and another with Steve Carell and Emma Stone. Before their showdown, the then 55-year-old Riggs was very vocal about his opinion that women could never beat men at tennis and Billie Jean made it her mission to prove him wrong.
Serbian tennis star Ana Ivanovic is entering the US Open today with confidence. “Obviously, there is a little bit of nerves involved, but I really feel like I’ve been playing well the last few weeks,” she tells Yahoo Beauty. Currently ranked No. 7, the 27-year-old already has a French Open win and previous No. 1 ranking under her belt, and is psyched to take on Serena Williams this week. At just five years old Ivanovic already knew she wanted to be a tennis star, but she didn’t anticipate being pushed into the spotlight.

So you can see why, over the weekend, Williams didn't pay any mind to a senseless commentator that tweeted that “she is built like a man” attached to a photo of her in a curve-hugging red dress and sky high Christian Louboutin heels. While Williams paved her way to victory, she found an unexpected ally in author JK Rowling, who shut down the ignorant detractor. "Yeah, my husband looks just like this in a dress. Of course Williams then went on to rack up another damning win in the style department — she wore a peach-colored gown to the Wimbledon Ball that she had bought and packed “just in case.” The long silk gown featured a bejeweled bodice, and the champion was practically glowing with glee.
Wimbledon's sartorial standards are strict — both on and off the court. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge graced the grounds with their royal presence, with Kate's red L.K. Bennett dress matching Prince William's tie, and David Beckham brought along his son Romeo, both wore matching linen blazers.
