Florida (US), Nov.6 (ANI): Former US tennis champion Chris Evert has revealed that she separated from golfing great Greg Norman because she wanted to be "at home being a mum".

Evert stepped into the public spotlight to promote her annual two-day Chris Evert/Raymond James Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic in Florida.

Norman and Evert announced on October 2 they were separating just 15 months into their marriage.

"I've been through good times and bad times and have had ... the press follow me around and that's again, the price you pay and it's fine," Evert told WPTV.

"I have great kids and I'm where I want to be right now. I want to be at home being a mum ... not travelling, and I'm where I should be in my life right now," The Daily Telegraph quoted 54-year-old Evert, who has been married thrice, as saying.

Evert said during her stellar tennis career, which included 18 Grand Slam singles titles, she was "self-absorbed", but that changed after she retired and started a family.

"I think that I realised that my life as a tennis pro was very self-absorbed, and it was all about me and it was all about what do I need to do to be number one in the world and what do I need with my training?" she told WPTV. (ANI)
