Rory McIlroy made an abrupt decision to end his relationship with Caroline Wozniacki last week. He has implied that the calling off of their engagement was mutual, but it sure doesn’t seem that way. In fact, one report claims Wozniacki thought McIlroy was joking when he told her he wanted to end things.
According to Neil Harman of The Times in London, Wozniacki was still searching for answers about the sudden breakup after her loss at the French Open.
“The last time he called, less than a day after telling her how much he loved her, it was a three-minute conversation she thought was a joke,” Harman wrote, according to For the Win.
If that was indeed the last time McIlroy called Wozniacki, that would imply that the 25-year-old golfer broke up with his fiancee over the phone. Christopher Clarey of The New York Times heard a similar story.
Learned today at Roland Garros that Rory McIlroy called off his engagement with Caroline Wozniacki by telephone. Tough to comprehend that

McIlroy’s decision to dump Wozniacki came just a few days after their wedding invitations were sent out. I suppose that’s better than leaving her at the alter, but you would think he could wait until they got together to have “the talk” in person.
It probably stings Wozniacki even more that McIlroy went on to win a tournament just days after breaking up with her.
