Caroline Wozniacki is practicing in Monaco

WHILE Rory McIlroy’s game fell apart at the British Open, his tennis star girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki was getting in some practice sessions at their Monaco home.

She made a disappointing second round exit from Wimbledon last month due to injury.

But Caroline (22) is eager to get back to the top of her game.

The Danish tennis star told her followers on Twitter that is getting in some “practice sessions” in her training area at the Monaco home she shares with the Irish golfing ace.

Rory and Caroline – dubbed Wozilroy by their legions of fans – have had a tough year professionally.

Caroline has slipped down the tennis rankings from No2 to No9.
