Well, OK - we cheated. We couldn't find a pic of both babies today, so we just photoshopped this one. How did you figure it out? We think this is Charlene Riva rather than Myla Rose. But can I just stop and say, "Charlene?!?" really?... Charlene?

Zurich - Only hours after their widely anticipated birth, the twin daughters of Roger Federer and Mirka Vavrinec are already being tipped for tennis stardom, with London bookmakers Friday offering 100/1 odds of one of the pair someday winning Wimbledon. The twins, born Thursday, have barely opened their eyes but are tabbed as 25/1 to claim a Grand Slam event. "The twins certainly come from good tennis stock," said a spokesman for Ladbrokes. "If they are half as good as their dad they will still be a potent force on the court."

With their tennis pedigree as daughters of the best in the world to play the game, the newborns have been rated as 50/1 to win a Grand Slam doubles title as part of the same team and 200/1 to earn the Wimbledon crown before 2035, when they will turn 26.

The world number one and 15-time Grand Slam winner and his wife, herself a former WTA player, have named the girls Charlene Riva and Myla Rose.

"This is the greatest day of our lives," Federer said on his website. "Mirka, Myla and Charlene are all healthy and doing very well."

Federer broke the record of 14 Grand Slam titles held by Pete Sampras earlier this month when he defeated American Andy Roddick in an epic five-set Wimbledon final.

*note: yeah, we really cheated. That girl doesn't look anything like Roger or Mirka, does she? No she looks like fellow tennis pro Max Mirnyi ~ that's Max's daughter on the left, the one on the right, well that's Fed's.
