    I just went to Wikipedia, entered my birthday (September 23) and found out that I celebrate it together with Juan Martin Del Potro and Melanie Oudin. Of course it is all pure coincidence, but I somehow became a tiny bit closer to those players emotionally.

    Try it out of boredom, maybe you share your birthday with some ATP or WTA legend.

    Very unlikely considering my Bday has a 1/(365*3+366) chance of occuring. But i do share a birthday with an olympic swimmer

    I've got the same birthday as Flavia Penetta. :D Bobby Riggs also shares my birthday. And Chicago Bulls forward Joakim Noah has the same birthday as mine, and since his father is still the last Frenchman (or woman) to capture the French Open singles title, that should count for something.

    I've also got the same birthday as a few other famous people: Josh Wolff (played for the USA national soccer team, plays for Kansas City, used to play for TSV1860 Munich in Germany), Park Ji-Sung (soccer player, plays for Manchester United and captains South Korea's national team), Nestor Kirchner (president of Argentina), Jeff Fischer (Tennessee Titans head coach), THE Carrot Top, Anton Volchenkov (left winger on Russia's hockey team), Eduardo (Arsenal striker) and World War II started on my birthday.

    That's cool. But I think Mary Pierce begs to differ about Noah the last French person to win the French Open. Just sayin...
