Caroline Wozniacki on Rory McIlroy: 'feels like someone close to you has died'

Caroline Wozniacki has spoken up on her spit with golfer Rory McIlroy, saying that it felt like someone close to her had died.

The sporting supercouple broke up last in May of last year when McIlroy called off their wedding — just days after the invitations had been sent out.

The shock left Wozniacki heartbroken but the tennis world number five now feels that she is a much stronger person for the experience.

“In my head I had everything until that moment,” she said in an exclusive interview with the Independent.

“I had a great career, I was getting married, I have a perfect family. Everything was great. There was really nothing going against me. I was happy, very happy.

Then all of a sudden something happens that you don’t expect. You just see your world turned around, literally from one second to the next.

“I think I didn’t know how strong I was until that happened. And I didn’t know how much you can actually take. It really feels like someone close to you has died.”
