Caroline Wozniacki and Rory Mcilroy–one of the golden couples of sports– have reportedly broken up, and at least one source says it’s because of a photo that Wozniacki posted on her Twitter account.
According to the Irish Independent, the couple began having problems after Wozniacki posted a photo of her beau sleeping with his mouth open, with the caption “Jetlag? Lol”.
“Rory was very upset by it and even Serena Williams pointed out – albeit in a joking way – it was a pretty mean thing to do,” a source told the paper.
Wozniacki is one of the top figures in tennis, while Mcilroy is a well-known golf star who once unseated Tiger Woods from the number one spot; the couple have been dating for two years. World Golf Hall of Fame member Gary Player recently weighed in on the breakup, saying that Mcilroy needs to focus on his game with the help of a woman who can dedicate herself to him without the worry of her own career.
“If you’re a young man like Rory, you can’t play with worries,” Player said. “You can’t have managerial problems, you can’t have women problems. You’ve got to be out there and have a free mind. And that’s why Arnold [Palmer], Jack [Nicklaus] and I won something like 55 majors between us. Because we had three wives that were very, very special. I can tell you, many of the pros that have done well divorced several times and they never quite reached the heights they could have if they had the wives that we had. So I’ve experienced this and seen this. Now I think he’s on the road to success. He’s got to find himself a wife that’ll help him, actually almost dedicate her life to him being a success. And that’s hard to find today, because women are extremely independent today. It’s a very different time than when we were around.”
