Chris's Wimbledon days are over, but she hasn't left the court. Chris and her family now run the Evert Tennis Academy in Florida, where Chris is mentoring a new generation of champions. "This has been a dream of mine to have a tennis academy," she says. "It gives me enormous satisfaction when I drive up here and I see the kids passionate about a sport that I was passionate about."

Although she doesn't play tennis every day, Chris is still in great shape. "First of all, it's genetic. My mom is 80, and she looks 50. So let's just get that out of the way. And second of all, you know, I used every part of my body since I've been 6 years old, I've been a tennis player. I get all my cardio three or four times a week on the tennis court for two hours."

Chris was back in the headlines in 2006 when she went through a divorce from Andy Mill. Now, Chris has happy news—she is engaged to golf legend Greg Norman and says she has no doubts. "I think that both of us have lived long enough to know when you're ready, you're ready—when you find this connection, mentally and physically at the same time."
