NOT CONTENT WITH just being the best golf player in the world, Rory McIlroy wants to prove that he’s got mad tennis skillz as well.

Golf’s recently-crowned world number one showed up in Madison Square Garden last night where the young lady who puts the “Wozz” in “Wozzilroy”, Caroline Wozniacki, was playing Maria Sharapova in an exhibition tennis match.

Rory is pretty hot property in the US at the moment, so it wasn’t that surprising that he was the innocent bystander hauled out of the crowd for a bit of fun and games. And, to be fair to him, he did look like he enjoyed himself.

We’re just not sure how much he’s learning about tennis from Ms Wozniacki. Ok, his backhand slice was passable, but that underarm serve and awkward lob need some serious work…

Just joking, Rors. It’s called jealousy.
