Former world number one and 18-time Grand Slam winner Martina Navratilova proposes to her girlfriend Julia Lemigova at the US Open.
The 57-year-old's proposal was shown live on the Arthur Ashe stadium big screen following Kei Nishikori's surprise win over world number one Novak Djokovic.
The couple hope to marry in Florida, where a federal judge has ruled that the state's ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional.
