Lindsey Vonn did not talk about her relationship with Tiger Woods to NBC's Matt Lauer on the "Today" show during her first interview since her career-threatening injury, which aired Monday.

"Matt, I would like to keep my personal life private" is what Lauer said Vonn told him. "We respect that," Lauer told TV viewers.

Despite Vonn's denial to publicly mention the romance, TMZ is one of many sources who have seen the couple together. The entertainment site claimed that it was Woods' transportation that flew back Vonn after her sking accident in Austria, in which she suffered a torn ACL and MCL, and a bone fracture.

Woods has always been extemely private and the sex scandal has only made him even more careful of letting outsiders into his personal life. Vonn has been pretty mum on Woods for the most part, but even through her denial, there have been plenty of hints that lead many to believe she is into Woods.

When a reporter asked her if Woods was going to make an appearance in Austria to watch her race, she said, "Oh, my God, I don't know. You should ask him," Smiles and giggles reportedly came from Vonn in response to a follow-up question. 

In a conference call before her interview with Lauer, however, Lindey seemed a bit more prepared for the questions about Woods.

"I'm only two weeks out from the worst injury I've had in my career," Vonn said before the Lauer exclusive aired. "At this point, I'm not going to talk about my personal life." 

True to Tiger, the golfer has been rumored to be linked to more than just one woman recently. Photos surfaced of Woods and ex-wife Elin Nordegen this weekend spending quality time together that have led entertainment outlets to speculate that Woods is trying to get back together with Nordegen and would risk losing his fortune yet again to be with her. The couple was seen together at a youth sporting event with their kids before reportedly leaving together in Nordegen's vehicle.

Vonn is reportedly setting her sights on a return to competition just in time for the 2014 Winter Olympic games in Socchi, Russia. While admitting to battling recent depression, ("I felt after my divorce, that was something I needed to get off my chest. I felt I needed to tell people about it to be able to move forward,") Vonn still seemed confident in her chances to come back healthy in time for the games.

"I have plenty of time to be ready for Sochi," Vonn told Lauer. "Honestly, in a worst-case scenario, if I trained a week before the Games, that'd be fine."
