Caroline Wozniacki is finally moving on after her very publicized engagement to golfer Rory McIlroy came to a sudden and jarring end. The 23 year old blonde made her return to the tennis court last Tuesday to partake in the French Open and she was subsequently knocked out of the competition. The tennis beauty was feeling rather defensive when she made her way to the postgame podium to deal with a press crew that would undoubtedly pry about her love life. On this occasion, however, Caroline took the offensive and opened up her press by talking briefly about her love life.
Wozniacki took a seat for her post match press conference and immediately told reporters that she had “no plans” to answer questions relating to her personal life. She then touched on the subject briefly by thanking fans and friends for their support and “sweet messages”. She noted that she appreciated the kind gestures but that she really just wanted to “keep that between my closest people around me.” In no uncertain terms she ended the conversation by saying “I just have to move on.”
While the world was surprised by the sudden split, Caroline seemed even more shocked. She was quick to take to social media to vent about her shock. She used Twitter as a venue to tell her fans that she hadn’t anticipated the breakup but that she intended to “just keep moving forward.” Since those messages, Caroline has been relatively quiet when it comes to discussing her love life and now, with this most recent press conference, she seems committed to staying mute on the subject.
Rory was even more succinct with his break-up statement. The young golfer wished her well and thanked her for all of the great times they had shared. He then promised to not speak on the relationship anymore.
Rumors were quick to hit the internet as to why Rory decided to end the engagement and ultimately the relationship. Sources close to the couple say that Rory got cold feet one day while sorting through all of the wedding invitations.
