It is no longer “love all” for tennis ace Caroline Wozniacki and golf star Rory McIlroy.
“There is no right way to end a relationship that has been so important to two people,” McIlroy, 25, said in a statement reported by CNN. “The problem is mine. The wedding invitations issued at the weekend made me realize that I wasn’t ready for all that marriage entails.”
Continued McIlroy, currently ranked 10th in the world: “I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we’ve had. I will not be saying anything more about our relationship in any setting.”
The three-year relationship between the Irishman and the 23-year-old Danish beauty, who was formerly the world’s top player, was often dogged by rumors of trouble. But the couple seemed happy as recently as Sunday, when McIlroy Tweeted a photo of the two enjoying a beautiful waterfront dinner.
“Nice view for dinner with @CaroWozniacki at Nobu Monte Carlo,” he wrote, even adding a smiley face to the message.
