Exclamation Breaking News! Chris Evert Divorcing!

Evert to Divorce Husband of 18 Years
Tennis Great Is Married to Former Olympic Skier


BOCA RATON, Fla. (Oct. 20) - Former tennis star Chris Evert and husband Andy Mill said Friday that they're divorcing after 18 years of marriage.

Evert to Divorce Husband. "We are confirming that, after 18 years of marriage, we have decided to get divorced. The decision is mutual, and our main concern is for our three sons," the couple said in a statement. "We know we have some difficult times ahead, together and apart, and hope that our family's privacy will be respected."

Evert, tied for fourth on the career list with 18 Grand Slam singles titles, married Mill, an Olympic skier from Colorado, in 1988.

Evert was previously married to English tennis player John Lloyd.

Funny that she has a magazine that puts everybody else's business on front street, but when it comes to her life she wants her family's privacy respected. You gotta give it to get it.

She's the editor of a tennis magazine, of course she's gonna write about other people's business (related to tennis, obviously).

I'm sorry to hear that theyre splitting. 18 years is a pretty large chunk of time. Shame it had to happen. Good luck to Chrissie in whatever the rest of her life brings her.

Um, ok. Yes, the press will release an article that says they're divorcing. However they shouldnt, and probably wont, get into the story beyond that. That's Chris' business and I think she's respected enough as a person and an athlete for the media to realize that. Besides, it's not like she's an A-list celebrity that's in tabloids every week anyway, so whatever.

Writing about one's tennis career and one's personal life are totally different things, so I dont quite get your initial argument. You're saying she deserves to have all aspects of her life released for the public's entertainment because she writes about other people in a tennis magazine? Okay.

Why is that some people are so happy in others misery? I never quite understood that. Even the most ardent Evert critic would show some sympathy for an 18 year marriage ending...especially since Chris is well-known for putting her best into everything she did.

Chris Evert brought professionalism and optimism to the sport of tennis and will always be cherished and loved by millions for that. Only the lunatic fringe would dare punch her during a time like this. Well, at least she never tried to hide her boyfriends while she played tennis.

Lol @ at you thinking the press has respect for anybody. If there's a story they can create they will, trust.

That's completely true. However, I think the press has other more juicy stuff to feed everyone. Tis all.
