Chris Evert’s recent marriage to Greg Norman … both have been world No. 1 in their respective sports, she an American tennis player and he an Australian golfer … brought to mind the fact that some of the very best athletes have chosen other top athletes to be their spouses. Something in common?
Chris takes the (wedding) cake in this regard, having done this not once, not twice, 스포츠중계 but three times with athletes of three different sports and three different nationalities. She tied the knot (rather loosely) before with British tennis player John Lloyd and American skier Andy Mill. It must have been true love with Evert and Norman as she paid Mill $7 million in their divorce settlement and Norman gave his ex a cool $128 million to free up.
