Serena Williams supports Caroline Wozniacki amid breakup
Caroline Wozniacki tweeted on Thursday for the first time since news of her breakup with Rory McIlroy was announced. The two professional athletes were together for over two years and recently sent out wedding invitations, which resulted in McIlroy developing cold feet.
Wozniacki tweeted to address the split and made reference to Liverpool’s anthem, “You’ll never walk alone.”
It's a hard time for me right now.Thanks for all the sweet messages!Happy I support Liverpool right now because I know I'll never walk alone

She received this tweet of support from Serena Williams in return:

Pretty sweet gesture from Williams, who is supposed to be one of Woz’s rivals on tour.
Caro also updated her Twitter bio to remove “fiancee” from her list of descriptions, though she still is a mother to her and Rory’s dog, Bruno.
I really feel badly for both of them. Breakups are already bad enough, and it’s even worse when you were planning a wedding and split. They both probably feel humiliated and embarrassed over the matter. We definitely feel for them.
