Martina Navratilova and her partner Tony Dovolani said adios last night from the dancing competition. Martina told E! News, "I'm devastated for Tony because he put in so much hard work. He hasn't had great partners in the past. He wanted an athlete, he got an athlete, but an athlete blew it yesterday. We couldn't make up with the popular vote for the judging yesterday."

Actually, Tony had the same sentiments and respect for his partner. "I wanted America to get to know Martina," he said. "I'm just devastated that I couldn't do that for her."
