Caroline Wozniacki has denied rumours that she's split up with golfer Rory McIlroy and expressed her discontent with the decision to hand a wildcard to Angelique Kerber in Linz.

Various sections of the British press were reporting at the weekend that Caroline Wozniacki had split from her long time boyfriend Rory McIlroy, but the Dane has since publicly denied the rumours. Unnamed sources had supposedly remarked that McIlroy was leaving Wozniacki so that he could increase his focus on returning to the top of the golf rankings.

“I'm so tired of the rumors,” said Wozniacki. “They occur every time Rory and I are apart a few days or do not write on Twitter. There is nothing in it, and from now on I just think that I will keep my private life private... All is well, and there's not much more to say about it. I just want to be allowed to live my life off the court without all the speculation."


Wozniacki also explained how she'd made a formal complaint to WTA CEO and Chairman Stacey Allaster regarding the decision to hand Angelique Kerber a late wildcard entry for the Generali Ladies Linz. Kerber went on to win the event, and in the process secured the final berth at the WTA Championships in Istanbul.

“I do not understand that you can suddenly change the draw and allocate of wild cards that way,” said Wozniacki to Ekstra Bladet. “I wrote to Stacey, but I have not got a proper answer."A WTA insider has since told Tennis.com that the decision to allocate the wildcard entry to Kerber was within the rules.
