Rory McIlroy Will Not Be Switching To Tennis Anytime Soon
What he said:
"She has more potential at golf than I do at tennis.”
Irish golfer, Rory McIlroy, believes that girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki would be better at golf than him at tennis.
Speaking to the Irish Examiner, McIlroy said (via Tennis.com):
Being a tennis player her upper body is pretty strong. She has more potential at golf than I do at tennis. The thing is that when I play tennis the competitive side in me comes to the fore and I want to play well every time but it just doesn’t happen. I would get more frustrated because I want to be able to grasp tennis straight away.
The golfer disclosed that Wozniacki is something of a mental coach to him.
"When Caroline and I might discuss our own sport, I am very interested in how she prepares herself for the mental side of big tennis tournaments like how she goes about setting goals or whatever.That sort of discussion gives me a good insight into how she deals with similar issues I might face."
What he really meant:
“She could probably drive like Tiger.I couldn’t serve like Roddick, though.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“Soon, I’ll be caddying up for Caroline.”
