Caroline Wozniacki is one of the most popular tennis stars on the WTA Tour, so it's no surprise that the oft-swimwear model receives a fair bit of romantic attention.

But she surprised fans by revealing in a fun Eurosport interview that she was once proposed to in very unexpected fashion - only for her to turn it down.

And no, before you wonder, this proposal did not involve her former fiancé Rory McIlroy!

Wozniacki was asked by a car's stereo system - yes, it was a strange interview - what has been the strangest question she's ever received from a fan.

The answer?

"I had a fan go down on one knee with a ring and ask me to marry him," she revealed.

["Pretty embarrassing," the man driving Wozniacki to Roland Garros interjected.]

"That was in America. Unfortunately I had to turn him down as he hadn't asked my dad for permission!"

It was a fun moment for Wozniacki in an otherwise miserable week as she crashed out to Germany's world number 72 Julia Goerges in the second round.

We all know that sports stars do not live normal lives, but this really was an amusing revelation from the former world number one.
