Wozniacki crashes McIlroy's news conference

Caroline Wozniacki was in Dubai last week to cheer Rory McIlroy to victory at the Dubai World Championship, and she took some time to participate in one of her favorite pastimes: presser crashing.

In an attempt to weasel out some holiday intel from McIlroy, the cheeky Dane crashed his press conference to ask about ... Christmas presents. "You obviously have unbelievable support this week," she asked. "So, you know, if you win this week, am I going to get a really nice Christmas present, and what am I going to get?"

Rory gave as good as he got and took the opportunity to score some points. "It won't take winning this week to buy you a nice present," he said. "I think you'll get a nice present anyway." Well played, young man.

You can see a clip of the press bomb above.

This isn't the first time Caroline has used a press conference to make a funny. Heck, it's not even her second or third. Here she is at Wimbledon last year interrogating her Monaco neighbor, Novak Djokovic.

No one is safe from her mischief. She popped into Mardy Fish's post-match press conference at the BNP Paribas Open in March to ask him about his golf game.

***

Here she is at the Australian Open in 2011, responding to complaints from the media that her press conferences are boring.

And of course, her infamous imitation of Rafael Nadal's mid-press-conference cramping episode at the 2011 U.S. Open.
