Emma Stone & Steve Carell Go Head-To-Head In The First Battle Of The Sexes Trailer — WATCH!

no title

This is gonna be fantastic!

Emma Stone and Steve Carell's newest film, Battle Of The Sexes, takes us back to the early '70s when tennis legend Billie Jean King faced off with ex-champion Bobby Riggs for a contentious match that sparked a national conversation about gender equality.

It may be 40 years later, but this really couldn't have come at a better time!

The film's synopsis explains:

"Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs were on opposite sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. With a supportive husband urging her to fight the Establishment for equal pay, the fiercely private King was also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, while Riggs gambled his legacy and reputation in a bid to relive the glories of his past. Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis courts and animated the discussions between men and women in bedrooms and boardrooms around the world."

Ch-ch-check out the first official trailer for the movie directed by Little Miss Sunshine's Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton (below)!!

Shouldn't people know better by now than to insult Serena Williams??? She ALWAYS claps back in the best way!

Well, the 35-year-old was quick to put him in his place, saying:

"I think that's a very negative thing to say. Are you serious? Well, you should've been out there. That wasn't very kind. You should apologize."

Apparently, he was serious, which is ridiculous, considering Serena had just won! In fact, the recently engaged athlete was also quick to ask for an apology, saying "Do you want to apologize?"

Queen!

After receiving the apology, and thanking the reporter for it, the class act went on to praise Safarova's performance:

This is terrifying!!

Two-time Wimbledon champ Petra Kvitova was injured by a knife-wielding burglar in her home in the eastern Czech Republic town of Prostejov on Tuesday morning.

The 26-year-old tennis player took to Twitter shortly after the attack to let her fans know that she was "badly injured" on her left hand, but is "fortunate to be alive."

It's unclear how the attack will affect Kvitova's play, as she is left-handed.
