LOS ANGELES, March 28 (UPI) -- U.S. tennis great Martina Navratilova and her professional dance partner Tony Dovolani were the first couple axed from Season 14 of "Dancing with the Stars."

Their elimination was the result of low scores from the judges combined with too few votes from television viewers.

"It was an amazing experience. I just wish it could have lasted longer. I'd give anything I had, but I blew it yesterday and it cost me, unfortunately," Navratilova said on Tuesday night's results show. "I wish everybody great luck."

Still in the running for the coveted mirrorball trophy are TV personality Sherri Shepherd, TV stars Melissa Gilbert, Jaleel White and Jack Wagner, football player Donald Driver, "Extra" host Maria Menounos, Disney Channel star Roshon Fegan, actor, model William Levy, and singers Gladys Knight, Gavin DeGraw and Katherine Jenkins.
