New York, May 29: Rory McIlroy reportedly ended the relationship with fiance Caroline Wozniacki in a brief three-minute phone call, which she thought was a joke.
According to a UK publication, the 25-year old golf player had declared his love to the tennis ace in the previous call, which was less than a day before the ‘break up call’, the New York Post reports.
Earlier, it was reported that the sports pair, who had been dating since 2011 and split only days before their wedding, had parted ways ‘mutually’.
Danish tennis ace Caroline Wozniacki has said that she ‘just has to move on’ after losing in the first round of the French Open following the end of her engagement to Northern Irish golfer Rory McIlroy
Wozniacki, who lost in her first match after her split with McIlroy, was beaten 7-6 (7-5), 4-6, 6-2 by Belgium’s Yanina Wickmayer on Tuesday.
According to the BBC, the 13th seed, whose end of engagement followed McIlroy’s winning the PGA Championship at Wentworth, thanked her fans for their ‘support and sweet messages’, although she said that she wants to keep her relationship details between the ‘closest people around her’.
Wozniacki further said that she was not at full fitness following a knee injury, and was unsure of her exact plans in the weeks ahead. Her next scheduled event is the grass-court tournament at Eastbourne in June, the report added.
