Golfer Rory McIlroy and tennis star Caroline Wozniaki have broken up their relationship after an ongoing spate of split rumors and following an embarrassing Twitter pic of Rory, posted by Caroline back in September. Even her friends thought it was “mean” to show the world a photo of Rory sleeping with his mouth open, reports the Huffington Post on Monday, Oct, 14, as the paper goes on to re-publish the pic.
"Rory was very upset by it,” said one source. Serena Williams is reported to have joked about it. "There were a lot of tears,” the source went on. “[Caroline] still has her profile picture on her social-networking site set as the two of them in happier times, but I can tell you the pair are no longer an item.” It sounds as if that would be a given.
Actually, the Caroline Wozniacki, Rory McIlroy breakup may have been predicted in advance by Rory’s side of the coin. Golf commentators began talking about the young golfer’s love-life, and how hard that is on a career. In July, Johnny Miller partially blamed McIlroy's bad golf with: “I think he's in love for the first time. It's a wonderful feeling, and it's distracting.”
Well, so much for that. It’s back to work for both athletes.
