NEW YORK, NY, USA - She's had amazing memories at the US Open, but this one may top them all. Martina Navratilova proposed to girlfriend Julia Lemigova during a break in the Tennis Channel broadcast on Saturday, getting down on one knee, fighting back tears and popping the question.
Lemigova said yes.
"I was very nervous, but it came off, and she said yes, and I was flying high," Navratilova said.
"It was like an out of body experience because you see people propose at sporting events before. You watch it in movies and in real life, and here it was happening to me. It was pretty cool."
Navratilova and Lemigova have been together for more than six years.
Thanks everyone for your good wishes- I am very happy, so is Julia and our whole family:)
