Sun 7 Sep 2014 In: International News View at Wayback

Tennis superstar Martina Navratilova has proposed to her girlfriend at the US Open, in a romantic moment which was shown on the big screen. The 57-year-old asked Julia Lemigova, 42, to marry her during a break in play at the tournament at New York's Arthur Ashe stadium. Lemigova had tears in her eyes as she said yes, and the couple then popped champagne to celebrate. The pair has been together since 2006. Navratilova is regarded as one of the greatest tennis players of all time. She came out in 1981, shortly after becoming a US citizen.
