Tennis ace Caroline Wozniacki gushed about her two year relationship with Irish golf pro Rory McIlroy ahead of her first-round match at Wimbledon on Monday.

The former world No.1 has been dating the Irish golfer since the summer of 2011.

 “I think what Rory and I have is very special,” the tennis pro told the Guardian newspaper.

Despite the demands of a professional sports career, the 22-year-old said the pair make an effort to speak every day.

“He’s trying to work it out with his schedule, I’m trying to go and see him when I can, so in that way it’s been working out well so far. We speak every day but we never have a set time where we have to speak. We just do it because we want to.”

The couple regularly travel to each other’s tournaments to show their support.

“Golf and tennis follow the sun; we go around the world to pretty similar places. It’s not easy, but we make it work,” Wozniacki added. “When you know, you know.”

Despite the media glare, Wozniacki says they are not fazed by the unwanted attention their relationship attracts.

“It’s not really difficult to deal with and I don’t really pay attention to it, to be honest,” Wozniacki said.

“Because we’ve grown up and been used to the media, separately, it’s nothing new. It’s not like it’s been put on us all of a sudden. Also, the way we’ve been raised, we just do our thing and get on with it.”
