She’s one of the world’s top tennis players, pretty and well-known, but even Caroline Wozniacki isn’t immune to heartache.

The 23-year Dane has a had a bad week, having been knocked out of the French Open and now also being given the boot by fiancé Irish Rory McIlroy (25), who’s broken off their engagement.

According to reports Rory had phoned her and explained in three minutes why he didn’t feel up to going through with their wedding. The couple have been together for three years and were due to be married in November.

Caroline apparently didn’t see it coming at all and has already been to fittings for her wedding gown. The wedding invitations were sent out over the weekend, which according to reports made Rory realise that he wasn’t ready to take the big step.

“The problem is mine,” Rory told the media. 'I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we've had.”

At a news conference at the French Open Caroline dismissed rumours that their split was a mutual decision, saying “obviously you’re not prepared for something like this, and it came as a bit of a shock”.
