If there are any members of public hoping to find Caroline Wozniacki on a dating website, I'm afraid to say you will be left disappointed, there could be somebody else on the single star's radar.

The Danish star progressed into round two of Wimbledon with an easy 6-3 6-0 victory over lowly Israeli Yuichi Sugita, and then took some questions on her love-life in the press conference afterwards.

McIlroy

It hasn't been too long since she was involved in a high-profile break-up with golfer Rory McIlroy - the man from Northern Ireland cancelled their wedding having already sent out the invitations.

Interest in a sporting couple is always likely to be high, but while journalists are banned from asking questions about McIlroy, Wozniacki did talk about her future love-life and revealed that she was aware of Feliciano Lopez's presence at some of her recent matches.

The Spanish star, who has reached the quarter-final stage at Wimbledon three times in the past, is a keen fan of the former world No.1. He also sailed past the first round at SW19 in straight sets, courtesy of three tie-breaks against Yuichi Sugita.

Lopez courtship?

After having it pointed out that Lopez was a fan and already knew her father, Wozniacki responded, smiling: "He's already making his way in through my dad?

"I noticed he was on the sidelines in Eastbourne. No, he's a great guy. Playing well. This is very awkward."

While Lopez might be trying his best to woo the 23-year-old, he won't face any competition from eligible bachelors on the internet, with the Dane revealing it would be hard for any man to sweep her off her feet.

No internet dating

"I think I'm not that desperate," she said on the prospect of appearing on sites such as 'Tinder'.

"To be honest, you know, I'll just see what happens. I'm perfectly fine being single at the moment. It's pretty hard to sweep me off my feet. It would have to take someone very special. You know, you never know. I guess when you least expect it, it's going to come.

"Right now I'm just into my tennis. And playing here, it's great. That's what I'm focused on."

It had been a difficult time for Wozniacki in the immediate aftermath of her split with McIlroy. While the golfer won the US Open, his former fiance struggled at Roland Garros and departed in a first round shock.

Serena Williams

However, the world No.16, who won tennis' equivalent of the US Open in 2009, found a friend in Serena Williams. The 17-time major champion, who also lost early in Paris, helped Wozniacki through her tough spell as they partied together in Miami. 

The break appears to have rejuvenated Wozniacki as she returned to form on her way to a semi-final showing in Eastbourne as a warm-up to Wimbledon.

She has always struggled in the only Grand Slam played on grass, however, having never surpassed the fourth round at SW19. British youngster Naomi Broady is her next opponent on Wednesday. 

If Wozniacki is to break that run and go all the way this year, it'd mean that she would most-likely have to beat her friend Serena en-route to glory.

The more successful half of the Williams sisters, in front of Venus, has won the tournament five times in the past. The American's biggest competition is likely to come in the form of 2014 French Open champion Maria Sharapova, with the 27-year-old looking repeat her famous Wimbledon win from 10 years ago.
