Chris Evert relives the regret she had for leaving Andy Mill for Greg Norman

The American tennis player married her first husband John Lloyd in 1979, however, they got divorced in 1987. After that, she married Alpine skier Andy Mill in 1988 and she had three kids with him before eventually getting divorced in 2006. This was because she had been smitten by Australian golfer Greg Norman. And the American player has time and again accepted that she should not have done that.

Recently, she commented on an old comment that reminded her of the mistake she did. He had commented on a picture where Andy Mill had accompanied Evert for her second chemotherapy in February. The fan tweeted, “You never should have left him,” in February. Evert replied to the tweet stating, “You’re right…”

The divorce from her second husband was something that eventually took a toll on her mental health. After she divorced Greg Norman after two years of their marriage, she was suffering mentally.

The American player took professional help to get through that and now is on cordial terms with Andy Mill, who lives 15 minutes from her home.

Evert on her mental strength

Evert boasted about her mental strength on the court because that was something she felt she was born with. This might not be incorrect too because the ‘Ice Maiden’ did not get phased by any situation in the court, no matter how severe it was. She stayed calm and hardly showed any emotions on the court. And this led her to become one of the most decorated tennis players of all time.
