'Geek' McIlroy, 'Nerd' Wozniacki make Forbes 30 under 30 roster

Stuart Franklin

When Rory McIlroy promised Caroline Wozniacki a "nice present" after his tennis star girlfriend crashed his press conference last month in Dubai seeking clues to what she could expect for Christmas, he probably wasn’t referring to the matching "Geek" and "Nerd" t-shirts the high-flying duo exchanged on December 25.

Wozniacki seemed quite pleased, however, with the gift, since she tweeted a photo of the two in their newest threads.

Prior to the holiday, McIlroy compiled yet another pat on the back for his award-winning 2012 season. In fact, both halves of Wozzilroy made it onto Forbes Magazine’s 30 under 30 list -- a register of young-uns from arts and education to sports and tech who represent the best and the brightest of their generation.

Forbes recognized McIlroy, 23, for already chalking up two major championships, maintaining the top spot in golf’s world rankings, and coming in 91st on the magazine’s list of the world’s highest paid athletes.

The publication noted that Wozniacki, 22, was No. 1 in her sport for 67 of 68 weeks from 2010 to 2012 and that "now she’s releasing her own underwear line."

We’re not sure which talent Forbes editors, reporters, and panels of "expert judges" deemed more impressive among Wozniacki's "entrepreneurial, creative and intellectual best" accomplishments.
