Three weeks later at the US OpenKing retired from her fourth-round match with Julie Heldman while ill  and suffering from the oppressive heat and humidity.

King won her first and second round matches three days before playing Riggs, defeated Riggs, won her quarterfinal match the day after the Riggs match, and then lost the following day to Casals in the semifinals 7—6, 6—1.
According to King, "I had nothing left to give. Riggs had been a top men's player in the s and s in both the amateur and professional ranks. He won the Wimbledon men's singles title inand was considered the World No. He then became a self-described tennis "hustler" who played in promotional challenge matches.
Claiming that the women's game was so inferior to the men's game that even a year-old like himself could beat the current top female players, he challenged and defeated Margaret Court 6—2, 6—1. The match garnered huge publicity. In front of 30, spectators and a television audience estimated at 50 million people U.
The match is considered a very significant event in developing greater recognition and respect for women's tennis. King said, "I thought it would set us back 50 years if I didn't win that match. It would ruin the women's [tennis] tour and affect all women's self-esteem,"  and that "To beat a year-old guy was no thrill for me. The thrill was exposing a lot of new people to tennis.

The following week, King won the Sarasota, Florida tournament, defeating Evert in the final 6—3, 6—2. Evert said immediately after the final, which was her thirteenth career match with King, "I think that's the best that Billie Jean has ever played. I hit some great shots but they just kept coming back at me. Out of frustration comes creativity.
As King was serving for the match at 6—5 in the third set, a disputed line call went in Evert's favor. King said after the match that she was cheated out of the match and that she had never been angrier about a match. Seeded third at Wimbledon, King defeated seventh seeded Morozova in the quarterfinals 6—3, 6—3 and then top seeded Evert in the semifinals 2—6, 6—2, 6—3 after being down 3—0 40—15 in the final set.
King, however, believes that the match turned around because King planned for and totally prepared for Wimbledon that year and told herself when she was on the verge of defeat, "Hey, Billie Jean, this is ridiculous.

King won 0—6, 7—6, 6—2. She defeated another clay court specialist, Virginia Ruziciin the second round before winning only one game from Evert in the final. At Wimbledon in the third round, King played Maria Bueno for the last time, with King winning 6—2, 7—5. In the quarterfinals, Evert defeated King for the first time at a Grand Slam singles tournament and for the first time on grass 6—1, 6—2 in just 46 minutes.
Evert said it was the best match she had ever played on grass up to that point in her career,  and King said, "No excuses.
Let's forget knees, ankles, toes, everything else. She just played beautiful tennis. I don't think many players would've beaten her today. At this stage, just playing, that's winning enough for me. You gotta be kidding. It just means I've got a lot more work. I've got to make myself match tough I gotta go out and kill myself for the next six months. It's a long, arduous process. But I will be back. From her debut in untilshe had played in the final of one of the three championship events for women every year.
