Caroline Wozniacki Says She Gets Useful Advice from Rory McIlroy

Aren’t the perks of an athlete-athlete relationship just fantastic?  Actually, I have no idea.  I’m just a sports blogger.  My fiancee is a psychologist, which could either come in handy or lead to my inevitable demise later in life.  That’s not the point.  The point is Caroline Wozniacki said she has learned a thing or two from her boyfriend Rory McIlroy.  As you may remember, McIlroy suffered one of the most brutal collapses in tournament history last year at the Masters.  Apparently both he and Woz have been able to learn from it.

“You can’t really do anything about the past,” Wozniacki said according to the Belfast Telegraph, noting that she has taken valuable advice from McIlroy. “You just need to look forward. You have a tournament now, and you want to do the best you can. That’s it. Then if it goes well, it’s great. If not, you have the next one.”

Aren’t they just the perfect couple? One minute Woz claims she’s the real superstar in the relationship and the next she’s admitting to taking advice from Rory.  They aren’t No. 1 and No. 2 in the world for no reason.  Wozniacki did say, however, that she believes golf can be more taxing on your mind than tennis.

“I think it’s more mental than tennis,” she explained. “You do one wrong movement and the ball goes in the trees or somewhere and it’s difficult.”

When all you ever do is think about each other, isn’t it always mental?  In case you can’t tell, I still miss Rory’s ex girlfriend.

Caroline Wozniacki: I’m the Real Superstar in Relationship with Rory McIlroy

Caroline Wozniacki is the top-ranked female tennis player in the world and she jokes that she’s the real superstar in her relationship with golfer Rory McIlroy.

“I tease Rory, saying, ‘That’s how it is when you go out with a superstar,’” she told The Mirror.

Woz says she did not expect news of her relationship with Rory to blow up the way it did, but she’s used to the attention.

“In Denmark, I’ve been in the public eye for a long time and you just learn to live your life and not think too much about everything around.”

Both athletes have said that being with one another helps them because they each understand what life is like in the spotlight. We’ve thought that their relationship was kind of lame, especially when they stupid things like this and this. We at LBS still play for Team Holly.

Holly Sweeney Says Rory McIlroy Always Had a Thing for Caroline Wozniacki

It’s no secret that we flip back and forth between Team Holly and Team Rory here at LBS.  The bottom line is life was just much simpler when the two were together, but now Rory McIlroy is with Caroline Wozniacki and Holly Sweeney spends a lot of her time bashing him and coming up with clever practical jokes.  Recently, the 21-year-old Sweeney gave an interview that would be fit for an MTV reality show, but she did reveal an interesting piece of information about Rory and Woz.  According to Holly, Rory always had a thing for Woz.

“I always suspected he had a thing for her,” Sweeney said according to the Irish Sunday Mirror. “He’s always been a big fan of tennis. When he was watching the women’s games he always said he fancied her but I didn’t take it that seriously – little did I know.

“It was Rory that ran away with Caroline – not the other way around – so I guess I blame Rory, or both of them if I’m totally honest. I have to put the blame on him for what has happened but obviously I’m not her biggest fan ever.”

Holly added that McIlroy met Wozniacki at a boxing match in Germany while he and Sweeney were still together.  She said she saw a tweet from Woz saying she had met Rory and hadn’t heard from him while he was gone, so that’s how she knew something was up.  When he returned home, McIlroy broke the news that he was going to date Woz.

One corny custom golf club later and McIlroy and Wozniacki are still going strong.  Sweeney said she thinks their relationship will last “a good while,” but we hope she’s wrong.  They’re well on their way to taking the cake as the world’s lamest couple.

Caroline Wozniacki Breaks Out Serena Williams Impression During Match (Video)

Poor Serena Williams. Can’t a girl just play tennis without people making fun of her unusually-sized can?  During a recent exhibition match, tennis star Caroline Wozniacki decided to break out her Serena impersonation.  As you may remember, this is not the first time someone has impersonated her on the court during a friendly match.  Andy Roddick’s Serena Williams impression during which he used a towel was pretty entertaining.  Wozniacki’s impression, on the other hand, seemed a little over the top.  Check out the video that Busted Racquet shared with us:

I have to admit I don’t watch a lot of tennis, but if there was ever a time when Serena came out dancing to Rihanna I must have missed it.  Like Woz’s Rafael Nadal impression a few months ago, this was a little bizarre.  Alright, I kind of think she’s a little hotter now than I did before I saw this.  You caught me.  Maybe I’ll give her a custom LBS shirt that says Delniacki on the back.  If she liked the golf club McIlroy gave her she’s gotta like that, right?

Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki Are Now No. 1 and No. 2 in the World

Caption: Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki tell fans their preferred bathroom activity

Rory McIlroy moved up to second in the world rankings after finishing tied for fourth in Shanghai this weekend. The young golfer took a picture with girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki, who’s ranked No. 1 in the WTA rankings, to celebrate the occasion.

I know they’re proud of their accomplishments, but between this lameness, and the whole “Wozzilroy” business, Rory is losing some serious bro points. I really don’t know how much more of this I can handle before I jump off the band wagon for good.

Hey Rory, remember Holly Sweeney? You know, the girl who helped keep you grounded? Yeah, we’d like to see you grovel to get her back again. We can’t take any more of this cheesiness.

Rory McIlroy Gives Caroline Wozniacki Custom ‘Wozzilroy’ Golf Club (Picture)

To say that it kills me to have to do this would be an epic understatement.  We all know how much I love Rory McIlroy.  I was arguably his ex-girlfriend Holly Sweeney’s biggest fan, so when it came out that Rory had to beg to get her back I was okay with it for the most part.  When he dumped Holly (which is obviously what happened because Rory is a boss), I thought he just wanted to enjoy being the young guy at the top of the golf world.  Now I’m not so sure.

In lieu of everything that has happened since McIlroy began dating tennis player Carolina Wozniacki, I have no choice but to deduct a bro point.  Don’t get me wrong — I have nothing against Woz.  But the 22-year-old who feeds off of arrogance and confidence shouldn’t be making out in front of the Yale football team and showcasing his soft side.  And he certainly shouldn’t be giving Woz cheesy presents that fuse his and her name together.  Check out this picture that Devil Ball Golf shared with us:

Poor form. First of all the name looks like it was punched in using the same tool I use to mark my keys with words such as “HOME” and “OFFICE.”  More importantly, the whole combining of the last names thing is extremely lame.  Rory owes me a tournament victory.

Caroline Wozniacki Mocks Rafael Nadal for Cramping Incident (Video)

As it turns out, Novak Djokovic isn’t the only person in the tennis world with a sense of humor.  Caroline Wozniacki may not have perfected the art of impressions quite like Djokovic, but you have to start somewhere.  She decided to start with Rafael Nadal.

You may have seen the clip of Nadal cramping up in dramatic fashion during a press conference at the U.S. Open over the weekend.  While some felt bad for Rafa because he appeared to be in serious pain after his win over David Nalbandian, others thought he was playing it up a bit.  Perhaps Wozniacki was one of them. Check out the video of Caroline Wozniacki making fun of Rafael Nadal’s cramping, courtesy of On the Go Tennis:

There is certain to be an outcry of people who say Nadal’s cramps were no laughing matter, but it’s a joke.  Obviously Wozniacki was looking to have a little fun as evidenced by the fact that she’s cracking up the entire time.  Hopefully poor Rafa is OK and takes Woz’s razzing for what it is.
