Rory McIlroy didn’t provide any more fodder for the rumor mill Tuesday when he declined to discuss the weekend reports that he and tennis-star girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki have split.

“My private life is private,” he said at a news conference in advance of the OneAsia Tour’s Kolon Korea Open, “and I’d like to keep it that way.”

Wozniacki, however, was a bit more outspoken when asked about the various reports in the British press.

“I’m so tired of the rumors,” she told a Danish newspaper on Monday. “They occur every time Rory and I are apart a few days or do not write on Twitter. There is nothing in it, and from now on I just think that I will keep my private life private. … All is well, and there’s not much more to say about it. I just want to be allowed to live my life off the court without all the speculation.”
