Rory McIlroy may already be dating again, shortly after breaking up with his long-time girlfriend, and could be doing so in grand fashion.

Rumors have begun to link the U.S. Open champion to star tennis player Caroline Wozniacki after a tennis blogger apparently spotted them out together at a restaurant in Central London. Wozniacki was in London for a photo shoot, and McIlroy was fresh off the British Open.

Though the two have not been officially linked, rumors have been quick to fly, especially considering many of their recent Twitter exchanges, ranging from birthday wishes to "good luck" comments before matches, according to ESPN UK. You can see some of their tweets below.

Wozniacki's good luck tweet:

McIlroy apparently broke up with his girlfriend of four years, Holly Sweeney, just before the British Open, though the relationship had been off and on for some time. While the sighting could have been little more than a friendly meeting, the public appearance did little to quell Twitter-fueled rumors. The picture (which you can still see here, from Yahoo! Sports) was taken down by the blogger, apparently after an attack of conscience.
