Tennis Legend Chris Evert Says Menopause Ruined Her Marriage

Breaking News

Tennis great Chris Evert says menopause is at least partly to blame for the demise of her marriage to Olympian Andy Mill ... insinuating the hormonal change had a major impact on the relationship. 

61-year-old Evert opened up about the situation on Lance Armstrong's "The Forward Podcast" -- when the two were talking about the positive relationships they have with their exes ... including Mill. 

FYI, Evert and Mill had 3 kids together before they divorced in 2006. Two years later, she married Andy's friend, Greg Norman (the golfer). They broke up 15 months after that. 

"[Andy and I] had a rough couple of years," Evert said ... "because I married Greg Norman who was Andy’s friend, and that was … I don’t know, I was going through menopausal stuff."

Evert didn't expand on exactly how menopause affected the relationship -- but said the condition ("what women go through at 50ish") doesn't get talked about enough. 

According to the WebMD, menopause can cause major psychological symptoms in women -- including anxiety, irritability, mood changes, feelings of sadness and aggressiveness. 

The good news for Evert -- she says she's on great terms with Mill and considers him family.
