Well apparently they had... and now it's off.
McIlroy released a statement explaining that he is not ready for marriage and has ended his relationship with the Danish tennis player.
Victoria Azarenka posted this picture to her Instagram and Twitter accounts today... and that is a mighty big ring on her ring finger. Could it be that she is engaged to the man we all love to hate, Redfoo?
I'm not sure. It kind of looks like an engagement ring and it kind of doesn't. It'd also be a pretty weird way to announce your engagement, but she must have been aware of how it'd look when she took the photo. In Australia Vika joked that her engagement ring would have to be bigger than her friend Caroline Wozniacki's ring. This one might fit the bill.
However, it is April Fools Day.... Looks Vika is going to keep us all guessing for now.
While out getting photos of players practicing, I ran into the three most adorable "player guests" of the tournament! Above is Burno, Caroline Wozniacki's dog, who was being taken care of by her dad Piotr while she was warming up on the field for her morning practice. Bruno is a bit shy and MUST smell you before he'll let you pet him, but once he warms up to you he gives you lots of kisses and is adorbs.
Maria Sharapova loves the heat? Maria Sharapova fans were tense last night as she was almost upset in 2nd round of the Australian Open. She was throwing (and screaming) everything she could at her opponent Karin Knapp while playing in the "extreme heat," but couldn't seem to close out the match. However, after 3 hours and 28 minutes of play, the longest WTA match thus far at the Open, she finally got the W.
After the match she signed the camera, "Love the heat baby!" But, I think she was telling a little fib because this EPIC Gif shows how she really felt about the heat during play.
Maria Sharapova topped the Sports list of Forbes' annual '30 Under 30' which was released yesterday. So what are the reasons she tops the list?
1. She is still the world's highest paid female athlete, netting a whopping 29 million in 2013.
2. She launched her first independent business, Sugarpova.
3. She is covering the Sochi Winter Olympics for NBC.
I'm still not totally sold on the correspondent part, as she can get a little goofy in interviews, but I'm hoping she'll figure it out.
Happy New Year everyone! Rory and I started 2014 with a bang! ... I said YES!!!! pic.twitter.com/J7c2pXgsdC— Caroline Wozniacki (@CaroWozniacki) December 31, 2013
Happy New Year everyone! And a happy new year especially to Caroline Wozniacki and Rory McIlroy, who became engaged during last night's NYE celebrations in Sydney. Rumors of a split have surrounded this couple for a while, but they have always insisted they are going strong and this is one sure fire way to shut up those doubters.
Both Caroline Wozniacki and Rory McIlroy tweeted the news on Twitter, McIlroy saying, "Happy New Year everyone! I have a feeling it's going to be a great year!! My first victory of 2014 #shesaidyes!!"
McIlroy certainly did well with the ring. I can't wait to see what Wozniacki's dress will look like, (Maybe Stella McCartney will design it?!).
