A modest friend of mine is a twin and once said ‘God made me so perfect that he decided to make two of us exactly the same’.
This week Swiss tennis star Roger Federer welcomed twins into his life, but not for the first time.
His wife also gave birth to twin girls in 2009 – so now they are the proud parents of a twin set of twins.
The odds on such a phenomenon occurring aren’t very accurate, but I’ve read they’re somewhere in the region of 500,000-1.
Renowned for his Swiss precision on the court and in his attitude to playing, he has well and truly cornered the market.
Whether it’s singles, doubles, or mixed doubles expect to see the name Federer on many more tennis trophies in the future.
