Caroline Wozniacki has called for the media to "move on" from her split with Rory McIlroy - saying she only spoke out about it because her ex made it "really public".

The Danish tennis star and the world number two golfer's relationship ended in May last year when McIlroy ended their engagement just days after their wedding invitations were sent.

At the time McIlroy said "the problem is mine".

Known as 'Wozilroy' to their fans, the sporting couple announced their engagement on Twitter after Rory went down on bended knee after a New Year's Eve fireworks show in Sydney, Australia.

The athlete then gave one in-depth interview about the break-up.

The world number four tennis ace said: "At that point, I didn't really have a choice but to speak out, because obviously Rory made it really public from the start," she told the New York Post.

"Everybody was asking me questions and expecting me to say something. I just thought it was more important for me to talk out loud once and get it over with.”

The athlete urged people to no longer bring up her former relationship.

She said: "I am so much further along in my life, and I’m so much happier now.

"I don’t think there is a reason to go back. Obviously, that relationship taught me so much and made me the person I am today, but at this point, I am like, I’ve moved on, Rory has moved on, and I am ready for the media to move on."
