Aussie paper mX calls Rory McIlroy a ‘bastard’ in photo caption


The folks at the Australian daily paper mX have taken Caroline Wozniacki's side in the wake of Rory McIlroy ending their engagement last month just days after their wedding invitations were mailed.

Captioning a picture of Wozniacki following her win on Monday against Aussie Sam Stosur in the first round of the AEGON International, the paper wrote, "Caroline Wozniacki shows tons of heart to topple Sam Stosur, in her first win since that bastard Rory McIlroy dumped her."

On their mobile app, they went with a more tame caption, saying, "Caroline Wozniacki showed plenty of heart in her win over Sam Stosur. Unlike that Rory McIlroy bloke."
