Wedding talk for tennis star Wozniacki
By Jim Morton And Darren Walton
18:54 AEST Fri Dec 28 2012

Last summer, Caroline Wozniacki lobbed in Australia as the world No.1. This time, the dethroned tennis queen arrived with one - plus a sparkling diamond-encrusted ring.

Wozniacki landed in Brisbane bright and early on Friday morning with golfer boyfriend Rory McIlroy happily in tow, and what appeared to be an engagement ring on her left hand.

The pair have replaced Adam Scott and Ana Ivanovic as world sport's first couple and the new ring may confirm a union for better or worse.

The Danish star wore it as she flew in for the Brisbane International and also as she warmed up for her afternoon practice session at the Queensland Tennis Centre before removing it to hit up.

Talk of wedding bells comes as Wozniacki and world No.1 golfer McIlroy reportedly bought a Florida mansion together this month.

The 22-year-old will no doubt be hoping McIlroy's influence rubs off for better at the upcoming Australian Open.

Despite reigning at No.1 on the WTA rankings throughout 2011, Wozniacki has yet to break through for a gram slam title.

Similarly, McIlroy was golf's 'next big thing' for two years before he delivered with his maiden major at the 2011 US Open.

He followed up with the US PGA this year to confirm his standing as the top player in the game - and admitted that Wozniacki pushed him to greater heights.

Surging back into the top 10 with a bright end to an otherwise disappointing 2012, she has also spoken of McIlroy's never-say-die attitude on the golf course being an inspiration.

However, Wozniacki won't be receiving any coaching tips while the Northern Irishman accompanies her for a week at the Brisbane International before he flies to Dubai for the year-opening Abu Dhabi Championship.

"He leaves me alone to just let me do my thing," she said at Brisbane Airport.

According to McIlroy, Wozniacki's rankings slide and grand slam failure has nothing to do with her work ethic.

"Seeing how hard she works and how hard she practises and how dedicated she is, it definitely flipped a switch with me that I could be a little more like that," the 23-year-old told London's Telegraph this month.

The world No.10 won't be shirking the hard work in Australia either as she's one of eight top-10 players in Brisbane before backing up at the Sydney International.

"It is tough but that's how I want to start the year," she said. "I've never been to Brisbane so I want to start off well and this field gives the perfect preparation."
