Caroline Wozniacki's former doubles partner has spoken of her 'complete surprise' at her friend's split with Rory McIlroy.

Malou Ejdesgaard (23), also from Denmark, revealed that she just received her invite to their wedding only two days ago.

"It's difficult for me to comprehend," she told Danish newspaper BT. "I'm probably as surprised as everyone else.

"I received the invitation  two days ago. I'm sure she would have called if anything was wrong," she added.

The two are regularly in touch and said that she was 'really surprised' at the news as they were only speaking the other day.

"I texted her a week or two ago, and everything seemed fine. She seemed very happy," she added.

Caroline and Rory announced their split this morning after a brief engagement from New Year's Eve.

Speaking at a press conference this morning, Rory said: "I'm not going to lie. It's going to be really difficult but when I get inside the ropes I'm going to have to try and concentrate on the matter in hand.

"I want to keep myself somewhat busy and have a good week on the course."

"There is never a good time to end a relationship, I guess. I made a commitment to be here and I thought my duty was to play in this event.

“It’s quite a difficult time for myself and Caroline.

“It was amicable and mutual.”
