ISTANBUL, Turkey & BASTAD, Sweden - It's rare enough that two top players are born on the exact same day, but it's even rarer that they win WTA titles on the exact same day too - but that's exactly what Caroline Wozniacki and Mona Barthel just did, both born on Wednesday, July 11, 1990, and both winning WTA titles this past Sunday, July 20, 2014, Wozniacki in Istanbul and Barthel in Bastad.

While we're at it, why not check out the biggest pop culture from the day they were born?
