The Dane does not have the best record at SW19, having never gone beyond the fourth round – but will hope her recent nuptials inspires her to success.

WOZNIACKI is married to ex-NBA player David Lee.

For their Tuscan wedding, @CaroWozniacki walked down the aisle wearing a custom @OscardelaRenta fern-and-floral-lace-embroidered gown with a cathedral length tulle veil. The bride and groom, @DavidLee, tall and dashing in @TomFord, then said their vows before 120 of their family and friends–including @SerenaWilliams (who served as a bridesmaid)–and the couple was pronounced husband and wife under the golden Tuscan sun.

Was she was engaged to Rory McIlroy?

THE couple were together between 2011 and 2014 after bonding over their sporting lifestyles. 

The pair were regularly seen together with Wozniacki acting as his caddie in a par-three competition on the eve of the Masters in 2013

McIlroy announced on New Year’s Eve the same year that the pair had got engaged.

How did their relationship end?

McILROY ended the relationship in 2014, just days after their wedding invitations had been sent out with rumours that she had become a “bridezilla.”

The break-up took place over the phone – something which Wozniacki has since admitted she found hard.

In his statement he said, “The wedding invitations made me realise that I wasn’t ready for all that marriage entails.

“I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we’ve had.”
