Separated at birth vol. 3.

Okay, maybe not quite at birth.

Previous separateds here and here.

Similar by temperament, ability to disappoint and media affinity maybe. But the comparison stops there. Now if only Saurav were controversial simply for the way he dressed...

Ooookay... I dont quite know what to say. One part of me is incredibly happy - Sania Mirza, I never liked.
On the other hand, I'm a little insulted - cuz more than a few people have mistaken me for her. From the "autograph please" kids in Delhi to the dude outside "Default Club" in the City asking me in a british accent, "Are you the indian tennis chick?" And I tell myself it's the nose ring, I can't possibly be that fat :D

Hmm...disturbing thought.

yes there's all that of course. but over and above that, there's a distinct similarity in the way they both frown and grimace (not infrequent occurances, either, except on google image search :-p).

i don't get it - are you saying no one's ever approached you going "Dada!"?

yes, truly, isn't?! :-D

Never a Sania Mirza fan. And, although I wouldn't call myself a die-hard Ganguly fan either, I think the comparison is unfairto the poor fellow. She's not in the same league...not eve close, actually.

But, why Sanguly? I like Gangia. Gangza is even better! :-)

Aww. The poor chap never gets a break, does he?

Then again, I have my doubts as to how often Sania bites her nails in frustration/desperation. Or whether she can jump about a crease as inelegantly... :)

not comparing, merely pointing out grimacial (grimative? grimatory?) similarities :-)

i like the name suggestions. how about sou-za? (as in sou-za, rajkumareee, sou-za.)

break? what break? that's sania you're thinking about.

i guess i should add that by "sanguly" i meant as opposed to "doubaly" (for the one) or in "pairs" (for the other).

i crack me up.

Ah, I missed the grimacory aspect. I've never seen Sania play. Only seen the odd news pic.

I think this calls for a Bobby Riggs/Billie Jean King-style battle of the sexes.

dont think they do look alike, probably second cousins twice removed. Unless they have the same rackets. Wait! Seriously, they do look a bit alike...

oh, they're both grimacive. very. (and not exactly grimaciously too, at that.)

sounds good :-) which sport would you rather not watch them at?

aha! a convert! :-D

tr: In response to km's question, I think it would have to be mud-wrestling, shirts off. They've both been controversial for what they've not worn, why not go the whole hog? (Maybe I've been watching too much wrestling in Swades...)

And while I've always thought Sania was mildly attractive, she's never really rivaled Ganguly in my affections.
