Caroline Wozniacki lost a Wimbledon opener for the first time in her career and in the post-match press the media were pushing the question of whether her love life could be affecting her career in a negative way, but the Dane’s answer was short and straightforward: “No”. Wozniacki was satisfied with how she played against Tamira Paszek and blamed bad luck for the loss.
However, right after suffering the upset, Caroline rushed to Portrush, Northern Ireland, to root for her golfer boyfriend Rory McIlory at the Irish Open, alongside his mother Rosie. I don’t think Caroline subconsciously lost just to get to watch her boyfriend, I like to believe she just makes the best out of her time and tries to balance work and love relationships. 🙂
Our guest poster David Fearnhead recently discussed the topic of the curse of the sporting romance, though, on the very example of Caro and Rory. (source: Slice)
