People Magazine ^ | 10-2-09 | Eunice Oh

Posted on 10/02/2009 7:36:58 PM PDT by Justaham

Chris Evert and Greg Norman have separated after 15 months of marriage, reps for the couple confirm to PEOPLE.

"Chris and Greg will remain friends and supportive of one another's family," Evert's rep, Tammy Starr, told PEOPLE Friday. Norman's rep also confirmed the split.

The tennis champ and golf legend, both 54, tied the knot in a sunset ceremony in the Bahamas on June 28, 2008 and got engaged in December 2007 in South Africa.

Chris has been through a few fellow tennis player, a skier, and a golfer. I guess a bowler is next.

All athletes, all have ended badly. Maybe she needs a nerd.

Me neither! I thought she was married to the guy who was a 3rd baseman for the Reds.

Damn, that's what I get for not subscribing to People Magazine. I'm out of touch! ;~))

I thought it odd they hooked up originally - but hoped the best for them. It’s sad. Perhaps 1 too many Alpha’s in the room??

At 54, expectations for ???? are ?????

Been on the wedding-go-round a few times and no matter how great things are initially - the buzz quiets. I’ve always been okay with that, but the male seems to want to keep hunting for more.

Is that reality or just perception?

So did I. I thought all female tennis players are. So does that really mean that Greg Norman is really Norma Gregg?

Norman was coming off an ugly divorce from Laura Andrassy, the mother of his two children, which ended in a settlement that paid her just over $100 million. Evert was married twice previously, most recently to Olympic downhill skier Andy Mill, with whom she had three children. They were divorced in December 2006.

Two totally self absorbed people, no wonder it didn’t work.
Liked Chrissy, hated Norman after that drunken affair with President Clinton where Clinton was injured and they Norman and Clinton both had diffierent tales of what happened and the two of them made fools of themselves.

That’s exactly what it means, Greg Norman=Norma Gregg.
DOn’t you remember that time Clinton went down and visited ole Greg, when we thought it was a cover to get his willie straightened out so it wouldn’t conform to the Paula Jones description? Is it all becoming clear to you now?

Okay, now. He lost many tournaments because someone made some incredible shot - nothing he could do about that.

Chris and I are the same age. I fell in love with her when I saw her win in 1971 (I also played tennis then, but not as good as the jocks that chased after her)...

Why even bother getting married if they couldn’t even commit to marriage longer than 15 months.

No kidding? The black guy? I thought that Barbra Walters chick from ABC had dibs on him.

Man, you can't tell the players without a scorecard anymore.

I got to start getting People. My dentist doesn't have it anymore.

He was and still is a very good golfer. Almost won the British Open in 2008 except Padraig played great.

Neither one of them are very pleasant people. She came off as a cold witch when follow him around after marriage. Maybe she was jealous of the limelight. He was a skirt chaser and always somewhat unpleasant. People said Faldo was cold and aloof but a lot of people like him now. They had great battles.

Wow, that’s too bad, they seemed to be crazy about each other, she even caddied for him at the Par-3 Masters tourney, and he credited her with his inspiration for playing so great at the British Open last year.

Usually the first 6-12 months are blissful, too bad, they seemed like a good couple.

What happened is that Clinton tried to hit on Norman’s wife, I believe, and I think Norman hit him or knocked him over.
