Separated at Birth: Marcos Baghdatis and Siavash Sabbaghpour, our Middle Eastern madmen
Pope and Swift have had something of a Separated at Birth writer’s block of late. We don’t know what has been the cause of our sporting spot the difference malaise but, you’ll be happy to know, we’re determined to put it right.
Starting with a Cypriot and an Iranian. If you’re at all interested, it came to us late at night as we mulled over who would win Indian Wells/the next series of Big Brother. The result was Marcos Baghdatis (tennis player and Cyrpriot legend) and Siavash Sabbaghpour ( Big Brother contestant and Iranian nobody) with their shared facial hair and cheeky sense of humour. They’re even similar in the way they defy logic, one by beating grandmaster Roger Federer just the other day and the other by caring for that whining Irish woman with the mental boyfriend.
I know what you’re thinking, it’s like S.A.B had never been away…
