Now working as a commentator, Evert bought the house with her now ex-husband Andy Mill in 2003 for $2.8million.

She has sold the five-acre plot, in Boca Raton, for $4.99m (£4m).

Evert had raised her three boys at the home but decided to sell up as her sons are now all over 21 and have flown the nest.

The mansion boasts more than 12,000 square foot of living space and comes complete with a nine-car garage.

The luscious grounds have a swimming pool, a tennis court – of course – a football pitch, putting green and two guesthouses.

Inside the eight-bedroom, seven-bathroom mansion is a gourmet kitchen and stunningly decorated living spaces.

There is a full-size snooker table in one of the rooms and a beautiful terrace with seating and a mini-kitchen.

Evert's former home also has a complete gym and a home cinema.

Last month, the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) announced it would name its trophy for the top-ranked player of the year after Evert.

Evert was world No1 seven out of eight years from 1974 to 1981.

She also holds the record, for men and women, for best winning percentage in a career – winning 89.97 per cent (1,309) of her 1,455 matches.
