Tennis star Caroline Wozniacki suffered heartbreak this week, as Rory McIlroy called off their wedding.
The couple were one of the most famous in the sporting circuit and much of the sympathy from the public went to 23-year-old Wozniacki, who is currently nursing a knee injury and could miss the French Open which starts on Sunday.
McIlroy is a famous Manchester United supporter while Wozniacki is a well-known Liverpool fan, and during their time together, they often engaged in football banter on social networking site Twitter.
Now, following their break-up, the former world number one believes that supporting Liverpool will prove to be helpful for her.
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— Caroline Wozniacki (@CaroWozniacki) May 22, 2014
It is clear from the Dane’s post on Twitter that she is taking a dig at McIlroy for calling off the wedding and leaving her heartbroken.
It could take a while for Wozniacki to get over the bitter disappointment of the break-up, but hopefully the success that Liverpool have achieved in the 2013-14 campaign and their future prospects will soothe the pain.
