Love game: Five other sporting power couples for 'Wozzilroy' to ponder

The marketing guys reckon McIlroy and Wozniaki are about to strike it (even more) rich… but here are some cautionary tales for the young, fit and in love.

RORY MCILROY AND and girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki could become even more filthy rich if they play their cards right as the sporting world’s ‘golden couple’.

Coming on top of the combined total €26million earned separately last year by the top women’s tennis player and the future (fingers crossed) top dog in golf, that would represent a serious chunk of change.

That’s what the marketing experts reckon anyway. But how have previous sporting couples faired out?
