The blondes are taking over Wimbledon this year.
After revving up a few engines during Sunday’s Formula One Grand Prix of Great Britain event, Lindsey Vonn switched gears back to the tennis circuit Monday to cheer on pals Roger Federer and Caroline Wozniacki, acting as the Danish ace’s “lucky charm” since Saturday.
Vonn and Wozniacki met thanks to their respective exes — PGA stars Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy — and have become fast friends given their common interests in the sports world.
“I met her before on the golf tour. We text a lot,” Vonn dished to USA TODAY Sports.“This is the first time that I’ve actually been able to watch her because I haven’t been at any tournaments since I got injured. Females in sports, we have a lot in common. It’s nice to have a friend that understands the difficulties of being in the spotlight and training hard and competing.”
Woods’ bombshell ex may have been texting Wozniacki quite a bit Monday, following her loss to Garbine Mugurza in the fourth round of the tournament. Moments after hitting the podium for a press conference, J.J. Watt’s lady love was quizzed about her injury-stricken former fiance. Fortunately for her, a moderator came to the rescue.
Vonn was asked how she was doing since the breakup with Woods two months ago.
“I’m doing really well. I’m feeling good. I have a good support system around me and we ended on good terms,” Vonn told USA Today. “It just didn’t work. That happens: Two adults, sometimes, it just doesn’t work. But yes, we do (keep in touch).”
