Caroline Wozniacki was dumped by fiancé Rory McIlroy back in May with little more than a phone call as warning, and the tennis pro has shed a little more light on the infamous breakup.

Wozniacki told Graham Bensinger that the phone call came out of the blue.

"I was shocked. I thought at least it would be face-to-face or something but there was nothing," said the 24-year-old Dane. "It was a phone call and I didn't hear from him again."

It was very hard because he made it very public from the start," she continued. "He put out a press release and all of that so it just got put in my face."

McIlroy, 25, proposed to the Danish beauty on New Year's Eve in Sydney. The couple planned to be married in November, until the the young golf pro changed his mind in May, issuing a statement that read, "The wedding invitations issued at the weekend made me realize that I wasn't ready for all that marriage entails."

"I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we've had," he added at the time. "I will not be saying anything more about our relationship in any setting."

Wozniacki hasn't let the obvious pain of that phone call get her down indefinitely. In fact, the statuesque tennis pro has already decided what she wants in her next romantic interest.

"I would like a taller guy so I can wear heels," she said, eluding to the fact that she is an inch taller than her former fiancé. "I'm pretty strict with my box ticking. I look for someone who is honest, fun to be around and doesn't take himself too seriously."
