First, Rory McIlroy threw a tantrum and tossed a golf club. Then his girlfriend, tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, pitched a whiny fit and went all John McEnroe on an official at the French Open on Saturday.
Do we sense a pattern? If so, prepare to learn a bit more about Wozniacki’s newly bulked-up and chiseled boy toy if Rory Mac decides to follow his main squeeze into the world of fashion. Because now, the same former No. 1 (and we don’t mean golf’s reigning -- at least for another week-plus -- U.S. Open champ) will launch her own line of underwear.
Wozniacki announced Monday she would unveil, as it were, lifestyle and leisure undergarments with the "This is Me" tag line. The products, made in partnership with Danish underwear brand JBA, will include low hipsters, G-strings and bras, and will go viral in September.
"This fall Caroline Wozniacki reveals some of her most private moments away from the tennis court," read a statement on the website of the distaff half of Wozzilroy. "A feminine lifestyle/leisure underwear collection for the girl that wants the good looks from fashion, a perfect fit for her body, and a quality that's hard to beat."
All of which made us wonder -- so, Rory: boxers or briefs?
There’s another trend emerging with one of sports' highest-ranking power couples as well, and it’s one McIlroy would surely like to buck this week at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Wozniacki, who lost in the third round in Paris, was her sport's top-ranked player in 2010 and 2011, has since fallen to No. 9, and hasn’t won a title since last August.
McIlroy, for his part, has played musical chairs with current No. 1 Luke Donald for golf’s top ranking, but has missed three straight PGA and European Tour cuts as he prepares to defend his Open title starting on June 14 at the Olympic Club in San Francisco.
