Martina Navratilova Is First Contestant Eliminated On 'Dancing with the Stars'

Tennis legend Martina Navratilova, 55 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 after struggling with her jive.

She said: “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.”

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.”
