Now McIlroy linked with Wozniacki

Reports are circulating that romatically link Rory McIlroy with tennis world No 1 Caroline Wozniacki.

US Open champion Rory McIlroy, who has split with childhood sweetheart Holly Sweeney, has now been romantically linked with tennis world No 1 Caroline Wozniacki.

Just hours after McIlroy failed to win back-to-back majors at Sandwich, he was reported to have attempted to put his disappointment behind him with a dinner date with Wozniacki in London.

The Danish tennis ace was in the UK for a photo shoot for two of her sponsors Adidas, and Stella McCartney.

A statement released by McIlroy’s management company on Monday confirmed that the 22-year-old Northern Ireland native had split with childhood sweetheart Sweeney on the eve of the Open Championship at Sandwich.

“Rory McIlroy’s long-time relationship with Sweeney came to an amicable end before the Open Championship,” the International Sports Management statement read.

Wozniacki may have caught McIlroy’s eye while he was a guest in the Royal Box at Wimbledon during his month-long break from competitive golf after his record-breaking US Open triumph.

The pair met just a few days later when Wladimir Klitschko’s defeated David Haye in their heavyweight title fight in Hamburg on July 2.
