Love match over for Chris Evert after 15 months of marriage

Monday October 5, 2009

Just over a year after their romantic June 2008 wedding in the Bahamas, tennis star Chris Evert and golfer Greg Norman have announced their separation. 
 
In a statement released Friday, the couple said they "will remain friends and supportive of one another's families."

Greg and Chris were one of sports' most high-profile couples, often pictured together at top events such as last year's British Open.

Sources close to the couple have revealed they had recently been living separately because they couldn't agree where to live.

It is thought that although Greg wanted his wife to move into his £35 million mansion on the exclusive Jupiter Island, she refused to give up her £1.5 million home an hour's drive away.

The couple have requested privacy for their families at this time.
