Tennis legend Martina Navratilova proposed to her longtime girlfriend Julia Lemigova at the US Open on Saturday.

Navratilova popped the question during a break from her commenting duties for the Tennis Channel.

"We've been together six years and I can't imagine my life without you," she said on bended knee."Please marry me?"

The New York Post's Page Six reported that Navratilova, 57, presented Lemigova, 42, with a three carat diamond engagement ring.

The crowd roared when the moment was broadcast on the jumbotrons at the Arthur Ashe Stadium where the US Open is taking place.

A source said the couple plans to marry in Miami-Dade, Florida.

"Martina wants to hold the wedding there to campaign for gay marriage equality in Florida and elsewhere," the source said.

Lemigova, a former beauty queen, has two children from a previous marriage and is the founder and CEO of luxury skincare line Russie Blance.
