Riggs payed tribute to Court's "sportsmanship" and babbled on for nearly an hour about the consequences of the match and his future. Some of it was even coherent.
"I'm like a fire horse when the alarm goes off in a battle against a woman," he said. "Don't ever count me out. Now I want King bad. I'll play her on clay, grass, wood, cement, marble or roller skates. We got to keep this sex thing going. I'm a woman specialist now. I'm going around the world to challenge all the woman champions. England, France, Czechoslovakia, everywhere. Me against them, sex battles. I've found a whole different life."
Whether he knew it or not, Bobby Riggs also had created a brand new term—Male Chauvinist Hustler.
