Tennis worldâ€™s No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki and US Open champion Rory Mcllroy are being linked romantically now that Mcllroy has officially broken up with his former girlfriend Holly Sweeney. Mcllroy and Sweeney are childhood sweethearts. The split-up was confirmed by McIlroy’s management company. The International Sports Management released a statement saying, “Rory McIlroy’s long-time relationship with Sweeney came to an amicable end before the Open Championship.”
Wozniacki and Mcllroy were spotted having dinner in London after the latter did not get his back-to-back majors at Sandwich. Wozniacki on the other hand is having a photoshoot in UK for her sponsors Stella McCartney and Adidas.
The two sports winners may have started seeing eye-to-eye when Mcllroy guested in the Royal Box at Wimbledon. They met again when Wladimir Klitschko defeated David Haye in Hamburg last July 2. After the fight, Wozniacki tweeted “Fantastic fight! Also met Rory McIlory, who was sitting just behind me:) Really down to earth great guy.”
Since then, the two have been exchanging tweets. In one of his tweets, Mcllroy congratulated the Dane on her 21st birthday. Mcllroy wrote on his Tweeter, â€œYouâ€™re getting old.â€
“At least now you will be able to buy me a drink in the US,â€ Wozniacki then replied through her Tweeter account. â€œNot only in Hamburg,â€ she wrote.
