Women’s tennis’s former world number one Caroline Wozniacki has laughed off recent speculation that she is set to tie the knot in a matter of a few weeks with the golfer boyfriend Rory McIlroy.
Speaking to reporters assembled in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur, the Danish tennis sensation stated that it is a question for the Northern Irishman himself to answer. Wozniacki is in the Malaysian capital to take part in the BMW Malaysian Open, where she is the top seed.
She stated that she is absolutely enjoying everything that is happening at the moment to her heart’s content and loves how things are right now. When asked about marriage, she stated that both of them are still quite young and added that they have a lot of years ahead of them. The 22 year old tennis ace fuelled speculation of an impending marriage to Rory McIlroy after she was spotted shopping in December wearing a large ring on her right ring finger, which seemed to be an engagement ring.
However, she has repeatedly denied since then that she and McIlroy have become engaged. According to a tradition in her native of Denmark, women are often seen wearing wedding rings on their right ring fingers. When the assembled journalists asked if she would accept a proposal from her boyfriend if McIlroy proposed right now, she burst into laughter, stating that things were getting a bit personal.
The 10th ranked Dane has 20 career titles to her name in the WTA Tour but she has failed to make a mark this year. Rory McIlroy has suffered a drop in his form as well, having not won a single title in 2013 with many critics blaming a change of clubs to Nike Golf at the end of last season for his stutter.
