Lindsay Vonn and Tiger Woods’ relationship post break-up continues to remain an enigma. Her reaction to his back injury was to give him enthusiastic support, which seems especially pointed given that they bonded over their respective ailments when they were still together. Then, there were rumors of her dating Britney Spears’ ex that proved not to have any grounding in reality and called her relationship with Tiger a learning experience, just like her failed marriage with ex Thomas Vonn! Now, she’s once again using the L word in reference to her famous former flame, but even taken in context, it’s hard to tell what kind of love she means.

“I mean, I loved him and I still love him. I had an amazing three years with him, but you know, sometimes things just don’t work out and unfortunately it didn’t work out for us. I don’t have any regrets and I think we’re both in a pretty good place.”

On one hand, this could be an I love you, but I’m not in love with you type deal. But on the other, it wouldn’t be hard to see this as a media-friendly, but rather wistful recollection of what once was. Also, does their being in a good place mean they are better off without each other or that they are simply in a better frame of mind to give love another try? Whatever she may mean by all this, she certainly knows how to keep us all watching.
