Chris Evert misses ex-husband, children

GEORGINA ROBINSON

July 5, 2010

Former tennis star Chris Evert says she had "no idea" her divorce from Australian golf great Greg Norman was coming.

Evert, 55, married Norman in a lavish ceremony in the Bahamas in June 2008. They were divorced 18 months later.

"I had no idea it was coming," she told Woman's Day magazine, adding that the pair had agreed not to go into the details of their split in public.

"It wasn't talked about, ever.

"Never in a million years did I imagine it would end up like this."

The couple announced their engagement two years after Evert's 2006 divorce from American ski champion Andy Mill, to whom she was married for 20 years.

Norman divorced his wife of 25 years, Laura Andrassy, also in 2006.

Evert, who has been in counselling since the separation, said she thought her love with Norman would last forever but they turned out to be "just very different people".

"It was our priorities and our lifestyles," she said.

"I wanted roots and he wanted wings."

The former world No.1 with 18 grand slam singles titles to her name said she spent far too much time away from her three teenage sons after marrying Norman.

"I am the first to admit I need to hold myself accountable and responsible, which I am doing," she said.

"But Greg needs to take accountability for the promises he made and the way he left."

Evert also said guilt played a part in their marriage breakdown.

"I still had an enormous amount of guilt," she said.

"I brought that into my marriage with Greg and I allowed it to have an effect.

"I've also learned, chances are, any relationship that starts out in a dishonest way is not going to work.

"It already had a strike against it."

Evert was asked if she missed Norman.

"I miss my family time with Andy and the kids," she replied.

"That was 20 years of history. Probably the best years of my life.

"I also really miss Greg's parents. The best part about him are his parents.

"They are great people. They're very down to earth and level headed.

"I always got along great with them."

Norman was Evert's third husband.

She married English tennis player John Lloyd in 1979 and they divorced in 1987.

A year later, she married Mill, an Olympic downhill skier. The couple had three sons - Alexander, 18, Nicholas, 16 and Colton, 14.

They divorced in December 2006.

Evert said there was a part of her that was still "angry and hurt" but she was working hard on "healing and accepting".

"I blame nobody but me for leaving my marriage [to Mill]," she said.

"But I have been trying to figure out why I crossed that line.

"What was it in me that I allowed myself to fall in love with another man when I was in a marriage?"

Evert said she had not dated since the divorce and wasn't looking for another relationship.

"I'm in the best place possible for me - to be living alone this summer with access to my kids and spending time with my sister in such a beautiful setting," she said.

"This is the first time in many years that I've been alone.

"It's a time for self reflection, reading a lot of books, doing yoga and hiking."

Lovely phony and fake interview. It's not even funny.

Re: Chris Evert misses ex-husband, children

It seems like her first two marriages ended because of her affairs. Who divorces one year just to get married the next (or two years later-but it's obvious she and Norman were dating at the time of both of their divorces, i.e affairs). Who knew she was so slutty?

Never chase love, affection or attention. If it isn't given to you freely by another person, then it isn't worth having.

Re: Chris Evert misses ex-husband, children

I'm surprised how much she revealed in that article, bs included. Maybe she needs to start getting headlines again to get some tennis gigs to earn back that $7 million she had to pay to Andy.

As different as she and Martina were on court, they both get into bad relationships that cost them plenty!

Chrissie is not "slutty" she's "popular.". Kind of like Joan Crawford was "popular."

I knew about her failed marriages, but I'm really just not enough of a fan of hers to follower her life details. I don't find her that interesting..her nor Martina. I do feel bad for Andy and her kids, but heck. It sounded like she was still married before she started fucking him as well.. Woman, just make up your mind! Husband #4 will be a fool to marry her.

Re: Chris Evert misses ex-husband, children

I can't believe she's turning into this pathetic Tiger Woods behaviour - admitting the interview is not a fake. Come on Chris, have more sex, break some other marriage. But please come back a little to commentating tennis just a little in you spare time.

Re: Chris Evert misses ex-husband, children

Well, the grass always seems greener on the other side. After 20 years of marriage things can get boring and once Chrissy had the opportunity to go outside the marriage she did and was blind to the fact that when you start a relationship with dishonesty it's not going to last. I don't feel sorry for her.

Next time close your legs to married men Chrissy.

Re: Chris Evert misses ex-husband, children

Well, perhaps I am too old to understand what these nasty comments are about. I was never a Chris Evert fan, but I think that in this article, she is a rather sympathetic person. I think she realizes she made a big mistake leaving Andy, especially for Greg and is an unhappy lonely woman. As for her being slutty, LET THEM WHO ARE WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONES!! Considering the vile filthy comments here on a constant basis, I doubt there are many here superior to Chris when it comes to morality. I seriously doubt she is saying these things for financial reasons, but more for self therapy.

I agree.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Chris there is nothing to figure out....you a hoe. You like the feeling of being in lust with someone and you get bored with it after a while. There is nothing wrong with that. Society just makes people feel guilty about it. I think she is taking the wrong approach. She is a single woman now, she should be living it up right now, not locking it down.

I am not conceited, I am just convinced
