Rory McIlroy receives dig from ex-girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki

Published 3 Comments

Caroline Wozniacki is currently in danger of being remembered as a personality better suited to sport's version of TOWIE, especially after her latest stint in the headlines.

The Danish hitter has posted a controversial picture - which has since been deleted - onto her Instagram account in which she wears high-heels. Shock, scandal or lock her up are probably thoughts that you aren't thinking. However, it is the caption which has caused a stir.


"Out and about in Istanbul. It's been three years since I have worn high heels on a normal day out. #feelsgood #looksgood #shopping #highheels #sun," she said to her fans.

This is of course in reference to her ex-fiancé Rory McIlroy. Hell hath no fury like a women scorned; the Northern Irishman is most likely understanding that saying now.

McIlroy digs

The golfing star was shorter than his 23-year-old partner and her shoe choice was clearly cut as a result - now the former world no.1 wants everybody to know.

It could be worse I guess, Wozniacki could be throwing her high-heels - with force - at McIlroy after what happened. (Note to prospective grooms; don't cancel the wedding - especially don't do it after sending the invites!)

Understandably the break-up hit Wozniacki - a former Grand Slam finalist - quite hard. She struggled at the French Open in the immediate aftermath and failed to make amends with a notable time at Wimbledon a few weeks later.

Silly situation

However, the longer this sort of silly tittle-tattle continues, the longer it will affect the game of the world no.15.

It's all becoming a bit like playground chit-chat. Journalists weren't allowed to mention McIlroy's name at Wimbledon but stories of a potential romance with Feliciano Lopez and other romance debates have surfaced. It's all a bit boring.


Caroline Wozniacki is a superb player, and you'd think that'd be her desired legacy rather than the off-court celebrity who's unlucky in love.

Of course, like anybody, she is deserving of a husband, a great guy - she seems like a lovely girl - but there's a time and a place to focus on it, and the public eye isn't such place.

Tennis careers are short and Wozniacki will do well to remember that. Maybe her master-plan is to establish herself as the queen bee of the sport, a David Beckham-type character if you like. But she will need to win a major or doing something significant if she wants to remain in the headlines after her career. Otherwise, like I said at the top of this article, she's in danger of becoming a TOWIE-like Big Brother wannabe.
