Taking a well-earned break from the world of competitive golf, Northern Irish wunderkind Rory McIlroy journeyed to distant NYC yesterday for a rendezvous with girlfriend/tennis ace Caroline Wozniacki, who was competing in the BNP Paribas Showdown, an exhibition match that pitted the Dane against long-limbed Grand Slam champ Maria Sharapova.
With the match about to go the way of her Russian opponent – who had just indulged in a spot of embarrassing dancing with an audience member – Wozniacki called on a “hot guy” to offer some assistance.
His self-esteem sky-high, McIlroy dashed from the crowd and flapped a few balls in Sharapova’s direction.
First golf, now tennis. Is there anything he can’t do?
