Martina Navratilova eliminated from 'Dancing With the Stars'

Washington, Mar 28 (ANI): Martina Navratilova became the first competitor to be eliminated from season 14 of 'Dancing With the Stars' on Tuesday night.

The tennis champion and singer Gavin DeGraw were both in danger after ending up with the lowest scores after audience votes and points from the judges were combined.

The 75-year-old looked visibly disappointed when she learned she was going home.

"It was an amazing experience," the ABC News quoted her as saying on the show, after hugging partner Tony Dovolani.

"I just wish it had lasted longer. I gave it everything I had but I blew it yesterday and it cost me," she said.

The Czech American also wished the other competitors "great luck."

Navratilova's combined score from performances on Monday night and March 19 landed her on the bottom of the leader board.

Welsh opera singer Katherine Jenkins was the top-scorer on both nights.

The tennis star had missed some of the steps during her jive on Monday, and her foxtrot from the season debut, while thought to be elegant and refined, was "too careful," head judge Len Goodman told her.

Elimination in the competition results from a combination of judges' scores and audience votes.

The celebrity with the lowest combined scores is sent home, until three stars remain.
