SHE may be nursing a broken heart, but it was game, set and match for tennis ace Caroline Wozniacki in the style stakes.

Just hours after her split from Rory McIlory was revealed, the sporting star was snapped relaxing with friends and partying with another rather famous man.

The Danish tennis player was clearly not letting her split get to her as she posed alongside UK singer Olly Murs.

She was said to be "absolutely devastated" by the breakdown of her two-year relationship with the Co Down golfer.

But Caroline hid it well as she ditched her tennis gear and looked every inch a fashionista when she stepped out in a mini red frock with a kick-out skirt.

She wore her familiar wavy blonde locks clipped back, while former X Factor star Olly was his usual charming self in a trademark bowler hat, teamed with a grey waistcoat.

The 23-year-old was a guest on the set of Danish Dancing with the Stars, at which Olly performed over the weekend.

"Cool to meet @ollyofficial today at the Danish version of Dancing with the stars," said Caroline as she posted the cute photo on her Twitter page. She also posted a series of photos with her pals in Denmark.

STRUGGLING

Despite news that her two-year relationship with golf hero McIlroy is at an end, Caroline has yet to remove an image of the couple as her profile picture.

Friends say a photograph posted by Caroline on Twitter, which showed her boyfriend in a deep sleep, was one of the final straws for the 24-year-old golfer.

The relationship ended days after the picture had been posted to millions of fans online, it is reported. But Caroline is said to be still struggling to cope with the fact that the relationship is over. "There were a lot of tears," a source said over the weekend. "She still has her profile picture on her social-networking site set as the two of them in happier times... but the pair are no longer an item."

While McIlroy spent the week in Ireland having dinner with former American president Bill Clinton and enjoying a round of golf with the ex-leader, Caroline was lying low in Monaco. She later enjoyed a night out with pals in Copenhagen.

Neither Caroline nor McIlroy have defended the split speculation after putting on a very public display of affection in New York late last month.

His new public relations team, The Communications Clinic, refused to confirm the split, saying: "We do not comment on Rory's private life".
