34. Remember the flak over Dr. Renée Richards playing women's tennis?



Renée Richards (born Richard Raskind August 19, 1934, in New York City) is a physician and professional tennis player.

In 1975 she underwent sex reassignment surgery.

In 1976 the United States Tennis Association denied her entrance into the U.S. Open. She challenged the ban, and the New York Supreme Court ruled in her favor in 1977.
