The tennis champ was eliminated from the TV dance competition Tuesday and became the first star dismissed from the series' new season.

She came into the results episode in last place and was disappointed, but apparently not surprised, at her dismissal. She said she gave it everything she had but confessed that she made mistakes during her jive routine Monday.

Navratilova, Roshon Fegan and Gavin DeGraw were all told during Tuesday night's results show - the first of this season - that they were in jeopardy of being eliminated. However, it was Martina that ended up being sent home.

Returning to compete next week will be actors Jaleel White, Roshon Fagan, William Levy, Jack Wagner and Melissa Gilbert; singers Gladys Knight, Gavin DeGraw and Katherine Jenkins; TV personalities Maria Menounos and Sherri Shepherd; and football star Donald Driver.

Next week's episode will see the remaining contestants tell a story through dance.
