Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki have proven to be the sporting world’s current hottest and international young couple. McIlroy, former number one golfer in the world, and Wozniacki, former number one female tennis player in the world, were both on top of the world in their respected sports. Then, they fell in love.

Ever since the young lovebirds went public with their relationship, their careers have suffered. Big time. Just yesterday Wozniacki was bounced from Wimbledon in the first round. Last weekend, when trying to defend his U.S. Open title, McIlroy missed the cut after shooting 10 over par in the first two days of the tournament.

Unfortunately for the 21 year old dream girl from Denmark, her relationship with McIlroy has brought out the worst in her on court performance. Wozniacki had won five tournaments in the six months before she stared dating the young Irishman, but she’s only won one tournament in the 11 months since.

Before Rory, she missed the quarterfinals in just five of the 13 tournaments she competed in. Since then, she has failed to make the quarters in 10 of her last 18 tournaments. She has not won an event since last August, and now has to wait even longer to win her first Grand Slam title.

McIlroy has missed the cut in four of his last five tournaments, dropping his number one ranking to Luke Donald. It is shocking to think that just one year ago McIlroy was on top of the sport after shooting 16 under par in his utter dominance of the 2011 U.S. Open. Golf experts and analysts were all trying to make room on the McIlroy bandwagon, but now they are all breaking their legs and ankles trying to jump off.

The couple, known together as “Wozzilroy,” has stayed out of the public eye for the most part. Their horrendous performances are starting to make people think that, just maybe, love does cost a thing.
