The US Open began this week and lesbian icon Martina Navratilova is covering it for the Tennis Channel. Martina 3_8_08_070.jpgEarlier this year, the sports channel put together a documentary exploring her history with the sport. The doc is not only compelling and moving but captures Martina talking honestly and candidly about her coming out process.

This week we're giving away an autographed copy of The Tennis Channel's Signature Series: Martina Navratilova in conjunction with the US Open. There's a schedule for the Tennis Channel's live coverage after the jump.

To win, just leave a comment below. The winner will be drawn at random. Contest closes at 9:30am Eastern Time on Thursday, September 2, 2009. Contributors are not eligible to win. Be sure you use a valid e-mail address so I can contact you if you win.

Good luck!

Ummm, Uhh, OK, I hope I win the DVD

I would love to win this DVD!

I never win anything but it doesn't hurt to try. :)

Ew, me, me, me! waving hand

I grew up with the US Open.

Perhaps her commentary will even include some tips on how to cheat your spouses out of alimony by exploiting anti-gay laws.

Your comments are absolutely appropriate and I agree with them. And yet you've now entered the contest in order to make them.

Fingers crossed!!!

Tennis is my favorite sport and I love Martina.

Martina has been a hero of mine ever since I watched her duels with Chris Evert.

I would be thrilled to win!

Can our entries be rank ordered by the number of minutes we've spent watching the US Open so far???

The contest is now closed. Thanks for participating.

I love Martina!!!!! I'm 53 and I've been a fan throughout her career. She helped so many of us when she came out. If I don't win, please tell her I said "THANK YOU".
