Caroline Wozniacki has broken her silence following the news that she and her ex-fiancé Rory McIlroy have called off their engagement.
The tennis ace, 23, posted a touching message on Twitter in which she thanked her 613,000 followers for their support.
“It”s a hard time for me right now,” she wrote. “Thanks for all the sweet messages! Happy I support Liverpool right now because I know I”ll never walk alone.”

Caroline also deleted the word “fiancée” from her Twitter line, so that it read, “Daughter, sister, tennis player. Mother to our dog Bruno.”
The athletic beauty and Rory, who were together for three years, parted ways because Rory, 25, was not ready for marriage.
The Northern Irish golfer released a statement on Wednesday, announcing the break-off of their engagement.

“There is no right way to end a relationship that has been so important to two people,” said Rory. “The problem is mine. The wedding invitations issued at the weekend 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. I will not be saying anything more about our relationship in any setting.”
