PAARL, South Africa -- Chris Evert and Greg Norman are engaged, less than a year after divorces from longtime spouses.

The couple got engaged Sunday night, said Tami Starr, director of Chris Evert Charities in Boca Raton, Fla.

"They're not sure of a wedding date yet," Starr said. "They're both extremely happy they've found each other."

Evert, who won 18 Grand Slam singles titles, wore a large diamond on her ring finger at a news conference Friday to announce a new tennis center at Pearl Valley Golf Estates, which is hosting the South African Open. Norman is playing in the tournament.

Evert and former husband Andy Mill, a World Cup and Olympic skier from Colorado, divorced last December after 18 years of marriage. The 52-year-old tennis great was previously married to British tennis player John Lloyd.

In September, Norman reached a multimillion-dollar divorce settlement with his wife of 26 years, Laura Andrassy. The 52-year-old Australian won the British Open in 1986 and 1993.
