Wozniacki congrats Spieth, backhands Rory, denies it

Queen of the subtle jab, Caroline Wozniacki, was at it again on Monday, sending this totally innocent tweet congratulating 21-year-old Jordan Spieth on winning the Masters. Just one professional athlete congratulating another. How sweet.

That is, of course, until you rememeber Wozniacki went through a very public breakup with world No. 1 Rory McIlroy, the very same Rory McIlroy who led the 2011 Masters through 54 holes by four, only to blow up with a final-round 80. 

Now that whole part about "firing from the start and never looking back" looks a lot like a dig at her ex.

And Twitter, as it usually does, took notice:

So, three hours later, the tennis star sent another tweet, clarifying that she was not taking a shot at Rory and just congratulating Spieth.

Glad she cleared things up, people may have gotten the wrong idea. Poor gal is so misunderstood.
