McIlroy splits with Wozniacki: reports

Former world number one golfer Rory McIlroy's split with leading tennis player Caroline Wozniacki is the latest chapter in a frustrating year for the young Northern Irishman.

Media reports on Monday said the twice major winner had ended his two-year relationship with ex-tennis number one Wozniacki, the news coming on the same day that McIlroy began legal action in a Dublin court against former management company Horizon Sports.

Neither side explained the reasons for the 24-year-old's decision to part company with Horizon but media reports said the golfer was unhappy with the commission the Dublin firm was charging for its services.

Horizon said it was disappointed McIlroy had ended a contract that had a number of years left to run.

McIlroy and Dane Wozniacki, who has slipped to number nine in the rankings, were one of sport's glamour couples and were frequently seen supporting each other when their hectic schedules allowed.

The Daily Telegraph said the 23-year-old Wozniacki was "absolutely devastated" about the breakdown of her relationship with the 2011 US Open and 2012 US PGA champion.
