View Full Version : Were you born the same day a tennis player was born?

May 4th, 2002, 01:24 AM
I was born 7 November 1977, the same day Maria Antonia Sánchez Lorenzo was born and we both live in the same city!!!! (Barcelona, Spain)

Isn't it amazing??? :eek:

May 4th, 2002, 01:33 AM
I really *hate* to admit this, but my birthday is the same as Martina Hingis's -- September 30th. **Way** different year and **way** different part of Planet Earth though!!! :)

May 4th, 2002, 01:51 AM
Amanda Hopmans and I have the same birthday, February 11, but of course, I am a "couple" of years older. She was born in the Netherlands and me in California.
Jennifer Hopkins is close, February 10, and again, I am a "couple" of years older. She was born a little closer too, in Missouri.

Both of your posts are cute. Spiceboy, were you also born in the same city?(same hospital too...that would be neat). Scorpio....wwwoooo

Marsha, the Libra....I can see it. Very level headed and humorous. That is wild that you have the same as Martina.

May 4th, 2002, 02:01 AM
Hi Irish!

Although I was born and live in Barcelona Maria Antonia lives here too but she was born in another spanish town (Salamanca) and moved when she was a child to get professional training.

So unfortunately we didn't share our first hours together under the same roof... ;)

May 4th, 2002, 02:04 AM
Well I think Irish said it for me. I was born on February 11 as Amanda Hopmans but I'm way youger than her(14)

May 4th, 2002, 02:13 AM
Well Marsha hated to admit that she was born on Sept. 30th, 1980 which is Martina Hingis' BD....but I'm very proud and happy to have given birth to a son on Marti's birthday so thats very special for me!!:hearts:


May 4th, 2002, 02:15 AM
Spiceboy, that would have been so unique and love your way of putting your first hours together.

Pinguingirl, I can't believe your birthday is the same as mine (and Amanda's), and of course I'm even more than a couple of years older than you. 2 out of the first 4 posters with the same birthday:)

May 4th, 2002, 03:06 AM
The closest is Conchita Martinez who was born one day before me

May 4th, 2002, 03:25 AM
Yes, I was born January 22nd...the same day as all time great Betty Stove! Does it get any better than that...I don't think so!

May 4th, 2002, 03:34 AM
no idea - my birthday was on feb 25 1987 - does anyone know?


May 4th, 2002, 04:42 AM
Have no idea as well!! I was born on June 25th and the closest I think is Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia who was born on June 27th..we're only 1 year and 2 days apart! :eek:

The good thing though is that I'm a big fan of Sveta, who is being coached by my fave's brother. :)

May 4th, 2002, 04:45 AM
My birthday is the same as of the most famous Russian amateur player - Boris Yeltsin, LOL.

May 4th, 2002, 04:46 AM

May 4th, 2002, 09:19 PM
Ns_seles, the closest I could find was Alena Vaskova (Nov 8) of CZE. About the more well known may be Maria Antonia Sanchez Lorenzo (Nov 7) of Spain. Several Czech and Hungarian players born near your birthday....cold winter in Feb/Mar?

May 4th, 2002, 09:32 PM
I am "twin" with Alex Corretja - same date, month and a year as well! :)

I always follow his results - just to see how well others - those who have born at the same day, are doing... and it seems that I don't have to worry about him... :)

May 4th, 2002, 09:46 PM

May 4th, 2002, 09:49 PM
Could somebody check up on August 10th? Please please please :) :) :)


May 4th, 2002, 09:50 PM
Ns_seles, you're welcome.

Maximus, you'd have a great doubles partner with Lisa Raymond who also was born on Aug 10

Next closest was Iva Majoli, Aug 12.

May 4th, 2002, 11:05 PM
I assure you I knew that jabberwocky. As I grew up, Gaby always seemed to be the same age as me (for some reason I found that important :hearts: ). It wasn't until about 4 years ago that I discovered the big surprise. The internet is handy for that sort of thing.

May 5th, 2002, 06:07 AM
I know the 2nd December is Monica Seles. But who others are the closest?


May 5th, 2002, 06:54 AM
Thank you Irish, you're kool:cool: Catalina and Anastasia are now my soul sisters, as well as Amelie and Pam.:D :bounce: :bounce:

May 5th, 2002, 07:17 AM
Me = 22nd August.

Mats Wilander is the only one I can find (the only one there is?). If anybody else knows of any others.... Cheers! :)

May 5th, 2002, 08:33 AM
Anyone know for December 8th? My mom was born the same day as Serena i didnt know that

I was only trying to be helpful. :rolleyes:

May 6th, 2002, 06:47 PM
5th of August anyone?

I think the closer is Pato Tarabini on the 6th... but maybe there's someone I've missed that was born the same day as me?

May 6th, 2002, 06:50 PM
Bea, you're closer to mine! :) ;)
4th of August anyone??

May 6th, 2002, 06:50 PM
I have been told I share my birthday with Chris Evert (21st December)

May 6th, 2002, 07:06 PM
Tina Krizan's a top 30 doubles player :)

Anyone know if there's a player born Feb. 3? :o

May 6th, 2002, 07:25 PM
Krizan/Srebotnik are a great doubles team ;)

Evie eh? Maybe I should become a fan ;)

May 6th, 2002, 08:13 PM
I was born on June 14th 1982. I would have preferred September 30th though!!

thefreedesigner - 22nd August - Franco Squillari (1975), I think next closest is Mary Jo Fernandez on the 19th(?)

Wizkid - 8th Dec - No one on your birthday, but the closest is Gaston Gaudio and Fabrice Santoro both on the 9th
