If you saw the 2015 NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship game you most likely saw an interesting duo sitting in the audience. The cameras honed in on none other than JJ Watt, who was cheering on his alma mater, Wisconsin. So him being at the game wasn’t a surprise, but what was shocking was the identity of the woman sitting next to him that caught a lot of people off guard: tennis star Caroline Wozniacki.
Now there is nothing to confirm whether they are a couple or not, but after the game, rumors, questions and speculations are sure to fly.
Here’s what you need to know JJ Watt and Caroline Wozniacki:
1. Twitter Blew Up With Chatter About the Two Sitting Together
The Twitterverse loves gossip, rumors and speculation, so it should be no surprise that the camera shot of the two sitting by each other went viral instantly.
2. Wozniacki Was at the White House Easter Egg Hunt Yesterday and Then Got to Indy Pretty Quickly for the Game
Wozniacki, who is a tennis star that broke out in 2005, was at the White House Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday, April 5. She posted several pictures and tweets about it.
From the looks of it, it was a success and enjoyable time, and what’s more impressive is how quickly she made it from Washington D.C. to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana for the National Championship game.
3. Wozniacki Was Engaged to Rory McIlroy Before He Broke It Off
Wozniacki is PGA star Rory McIlroy’s ex-fiancee. McIlroy and Wozniacki began dating in 2011 after meeting after one of Wozniacki’s matches. Although McIlroy had a girlfriend at the time, he showed interest in her as she became more prominent after her professional debut in 2005.
After three years of dating, McIlroy popped the question on New Year’s Eve 2014 in Australia.
But just a few months later, the golfer broke it off during the summer, just days after sending out wedding invitations.
4. Watt Said in October That He Was Single and Focused on His Football Career
Watt plays on the NFL Houston Texans team. He’s one of the best players in the league and one of the most eligible bachelors.
In an interview with ESPN in October, Watt said he was single and focused on football, his team and his career. He told Michelle Beisner:
It’s not that I don’t want to (have a girlfriend), it’s that I haven’t yet. I haven’t been able to make it happen yet. I obviously would love to have a girlfriend but a girlfriend deserves so much of your time and energy. And she deserves to be treated like a princess because that’s how you should treat your girls. And if I can’t give them that time and that devotion because of my dedication to football, then I don’t feel like I should almost waste their time. If I find the right girl and she steals my heart then it might be a different story. It’s very difficult and I’m not overly optimistic about it, but I would love the opportunity.
5. Wozniacki Was Seen at a Charity Event in December With Washington Redskins’ Ryan Kerrigan
In early December, Larry Brown Sports reported that Wozniacki and Redskins linebacker Kerrigan attended a charity event together. And while many speculated the two may be dating, both insisted they were just friends.
Shortly after the spotting at the event, Kerrigan was asked about his date with the tennis star. He told ESPN 980’s “Inside the Locker Room”:
I mean, I don’t really want to get into it. We’re friends, and she was in town, and she wanted to come to the event. We had a nice time at the event.
Nothing has developed since…well until the NCAA National Championship game when Wozniacki was spotted with a different NFL player.
