Another Distraction For Rory, Getting Married !!

At the New Year’s Eve fireworks display at Sydney Harbour, Rory McIlroy proposed marriage to his tennis girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki . Could this be another distraction for Rory as he tries to regain his number one in the world ranking ?

Rory used the firework display as the backdrop and a precursor for his own big bang announcement of his midnight proposal, employing Twitter to say;

“Happy New Year everyone! I have a feeling it’s going to be a great year!! My first victory of 2014 #shesaidyes!!”

Caroline wasted no time to tweet back;

“Happy New Year everyone! Rory and I started 2014 with a bang! … I said YES!!!” 

The two former World Number Ones were at the New Year’s Eve firework display in Sydney as Caroline prepares for the Australian Open starting on January 13.

These two are not the first famous Golf-Tennis double act to get married, with Greg Norman – like Rory a two-time major champion – wedding fellow former world No1 Chris Evert in 2008, although the marriage lasted only 15 months. Not surprising as they could not even decide whose house they would call home, they both wanted to stay in their usual places. You would have thought they would have sorted that out before actually getting hitched.

I wish the couple well and a long and happy marriage, wether they can both regain their number one status in each sport is a really fascinating event, which will keep the newspapers and magazines occupied through 2014.

Rory and Caroline Engagement Rumors are Rife.

Rory McIlroy and girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki have sparked engagement rumors once again after she was spotted wearing a huge diamond on her left ring finger in Australia on Friday.

Caroline Wozniacki and Rory McIlroy are rumored to have taken their relationship a step further by getting engaged. The pair flew into Brisbane, Australia, bright and early on Friday morning, Caroline flashing what appeared to be a diamond engagement ring on her left hand.

The talk of wedding bells is increasing after the couple allegedly purchased a Florida mansion together earlier this month. Some say the couple are already secretly married, alluding to the fact that she has also been seen wearing a diamond and sapphire band. Caroline has spoken of Rory’s never-say-die attitude as being an inspiration to her. But she will not be receiving any coaching tips while Rory accompanies her in Brisbane, before he flies to Dubai for the year-opening Abu Dhabi Championship.

” He leaves me alone to just let me do my thing.”

Rory is sure Caroline’s rankings slide and failure in Grand Slam events has nothing to do with her work ethic.

” Seeing how hard she works and how hard she practices and how dedicated she is, it definitely flipped a switch with me that I could be a little more like that. ‘She’s definitely been a great influence on me.”

Ex World number one Caroline, now ranked 10 is one of eight top-10 players in the main draw in the Australian Open in Brisbane, where Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka and Samantha Stosur share top billing. She is fully aware of the strong competition in this tournament;

”It is tough but that’s how I want to start the year, I want to start off well and this field gives the perfect preparation. Obviously I want to go far here and, to do that, I have to play against the best.”
