Martina Navratilova - Game, Set, Match: Martina Navratilova Leaves Dancing With The Stars

You might've expected that tennis great Martina Navratilova would've brought the steely competitiveness that swept her to the top of the racketed sport in the 80s to Dancing With The Stars. However, the retired sports star has rarely looked like being in the competition's final stages from the off and it's no surprise that it was she who was the first to be eliminated after a lacklustre display this week.
The 55 year-old wound up in the bottom two alongside the singer Gavin Degraw - a fate we wouldn't wish on anyone - on Monday night following performances in the quickstep and the jive and ultimately was voted the weaker of the pair, with the judges unimpressed. Len Goodman called Navratilova's performance too "careful" and "insular" while Bruno Tonioli quipped "My darling, I think that serve went into the net."
Navratilova blamed herself for her exit, citing her jive as the reason she went. "I gave it everything I had, but I blew it yesterday and it cost me, unfortunately," she said, adding "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."
