Spurned Wozniacki takes jab at Man U fan McIlroy via Twitter

Spurned Caroline Wozniacki took a Twitter dig at Manchester United supporter and former fiance Rory McIlroy after his "totally unexpected" wedding cancellation just days after the couple sent out wedding invitations.

The 23-year-old tennis star broke her silence over the split, taking to Twitter to thank her fans for their support.

But it seemed she could not resist a subtle dig at her ex-fiance, who famously follows Manchester United, when she wrote how she was happy to be a Liverpool fan.

She wrote: "It's a hard time for me right now. Thanks for all the sweet messages! Happy I support Liverpool right now because I know I'll never walk alone."

During the courtship phase of their relationship, Wozniacki had often engaged in online soccer exchanges  with McIlroy, once posting a photograph of a Liverpool shirt on her wall as she wrote: "Loving the look, Liverpool Jersey hanging on the wall above the man utd one."

She lovingly added she "might be in trouble" for posting the photo.

Her most recent tweet was meant to be anything but cute after McIlroy — who was playing golf with former Red Devils players Peter Schmeichel, Phil Neville and Teddy Sheringham in Wednesday's pro-am ahead of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth — dumped her in front of the world.

On Wednesday, just days after Wozniacki and McIlroy sent out wedding invitations, the golfer announced at a press conference that they had split because he was not ready for "all that marriage entails." 

Now Wozniacki, who is currently ranked number 14 in the world, may not compete in the French Open tournament in Paris following the very public break up, due to a knee injury.

A source close to the tennis ace said she may now pull out of the tournament, which starts on Sunday, with the draw due to be made on Friday.
