Julia Lemigova accepted a marriage proposal from tennis ace Martina Navratilova at US Open 2014.
It was caught on the television screen amidst much hubbub and uproar. Martina Navratilova’s proposal to Julia Lemigova was aired on the big screen after the Saturday's match of Novak Djokovic vs. Kei Nishikori at the U.S. Open 2014.

And 42-year-old Julia Lemigova gave the affirmative. According to nine-time Wimbledon champion Martina, she had a case of the collywobbles and was very excited when Lemigova finally said yes.
"I was very nervous. It came off, and she said yes. It was kind of an out-of-body experience. You’ve seen people propose at sporting events before, in movies, in real life, and here it was happening to me. So I was like watching myself do that. It was cool," Navratilova said.
This sort of thing had often happened before in countless other venues but it had failed in the case of many others. But in case of Martina and Lemigova, it proved to be the perfect match. The two kissed after Lemigova said yes. Martina didn’t want to affect the action that was taking place on the court.
"I have been waiting for the right time to ask Julia to marry me," 57-year-old Navratilova later said. "I thought this was the right place and the right time to pop the question and thankfully I got a yes."
The proposal game began in the manner of a process and Navratilova went about it very carefully so as not to disturb any sensibilities in the process. Same sex marriages may be allowed in some states but it is still looked down upon in many places as too risqué and advanced for our current Zeitgeist’s morality.
Although Lemigova and Navratilova had been living together for a couple of years now, they had not tied the knot. Lemigova already has two kids. And in the capacity of two lesbians they are crazily in love with each other.
Thanks everyone for your good wishes- I am very happy, so is Julia and our whole family:)— Martina Navratilova (@Martina) September 6, 2014
Some facts about Lemigova may surprise you. She won the Miss Universe contest back in 1991 and represented the USSR before its debacle. She used to be in love with a French banker and had a kid with him out of wedlock.
But the baby died at the age of 5 months. To this day Lemigova suspects that his nanny killed him. As for the French banker, he too died later on in a sadomasochistic session in his apartment that went too far.
It was half a decade ago that the secret relationship between Lemigova and Martina became public news. As for the current situation, Martina’s proposal was reported out loud in Arthur Ashe Stadium.
It’s going to be a Sapphic marriage and all you homophobes better watch out since Martina and Lemigova will be living their lifestyle their way whether you approve of it or not!
