Caroline Wozniacki engaged to David Lee

Tennis star Caroline Wozniacki‏ announced her engagement to longtime NBA player David Lee on social media Friday morning.

The Dane beat Venus Williams in straight sets to claim the season finale and finish the season as World No 3, and it seems the close of a relatively successful season has been rewarding for 27-year-old.

"Happiest day of my life yesterday saying yes to my soulmate", Wozniacki captioned a photo of her mammoth new engagement ring resting on her finger.

Lee last played for the Spurs in 2016-17, averaging 7.3 points per game in 79 games played.

Lee has yet to be picked up by a franchise after declining his $2.3 million player option with the Spurs over the summer, making the 34-year-old Lee an unrestricted free agent.

Lee spent the first five years of his NBA career with the Knicks between 2005 and 2010, averaging a double-double in three of those seasons.

Golfer Rory McIlroy split with Wozniacki in 2014, days after their wedding invitations were sent out.
