Former world No. 1 tennis player Caroline Wozniacki has reportedly told a Danish newspaper that her love with Irish golfer Rory McIlroy is still strong and that their relationship is as close as ever before. This after an Irish tabloid quoted unnamed sources as saying that the two had parted ways.

Wozniacki told Ekstra Bladet on Monday that reports of a rift in her relationship with 24-year-old McIlroy were just rumours. "I'm so tired of the rumors. They occur every time Rory and I are apart a few days or do not write on Twitter. There is nothing in it, and from now on I just think that I will keep my private life private," she was quoted as saying. "All is well and then there's not much more to say about it (the relationship). I just want to be allowed to live my life off the court without all the speculation."

It was earlier reported widely that a miffed McIlroy had told 23-year-old Wozniacki that they couldn't be a pair, leaving her 'devastated'. Some isolated reports also suggested that the reason for his anger and decision could have been due to Wozniacki posting a picture of him sleeping with his mouth open, leaving him embaressed.
