Ladbrokes taking bets on McIlroy and Wozniacki

Announcement leads to bookmaker opening a book on the couple

Rory McIlroy

Ladbrokes are running a series of specials for 2012 on new couple Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki.

The new couple are 6/1 to tie the knot before the end of 2013 according to the bookmaker, while you can get 2/1 on them announcing their engagement next year.

They're even money to win over $10m in prize money collectively and are 10,000/1 to each complete the Grand Slam of Majors in 2012.

In the head-to-head betting, Wozniacki is 1/5 favourite to win the next Major with McIlroy priced at 3/1.

If you think the couple will manage less than two Majors between them in 2012 the price is 1/3.

Alex Donohue of

Ladbrokes, says: "We think Woz will win the first Major. It looks like they'll both be in for a bumper year of prize money but may only manage one Major between them in 2012.

"If marriage is on the agenda the odds suggest there's no shortage of cash for the ceremony."
