Martina Navratilova Voted Off DWTS
Martina Navratilova became the first contestant to leave the latest series of Dancing with the Stars last night.
The 55-year-old tennis legend - who made up the bottom two with 35-year-old singer Gavin DeGraw - blamed herself for her exit, saying she "blew it" on the show on Monday night after struggling with her jive.
"I gave it everything I had, but I blew it yesterday and it cost me, unfortunately. Hopefully I get to the do the jive the last week here. I look forward to coming back and I wish everybody good luck. It was an amazing experience. I just wish that it had lasted longer," she said.
The judges were also unimpressed with Martina and professional partner Tony Dovolani's performance with Len Goodman saying it was "too careful" and "insular" while Bruno Tonioli added, "My darling, I think that serve went into the net."
The top scorers based on the judges' ratings over the opening two weeks were Welsh opera singer Katherine Jenkins, Disney Channel star Roshon Fegen and telenovela actor William Levy. The remaining contestants include Gladys Knight, Maria Menounos, Sherri Shepherd, Jack Wagner, Donald Driver, Melissa Gilbert, and Jaleel White.
