The two lovebirds were unable to spend Christmas together but rendezvoused for New Year's, where they awkwardly dodged questions about an engagement and spoke about the gifts they exchanged.
Wozniacki was wearing one of her gifts, a red locket with the design of the flag of her native Denmark. (At least, that's my theory as to what it is.)
