People think this tennis player looks exactly like Liam Hemsworth and it's scarily accurate

Over Labor Day weekend, millions of Americans tuned in to catch the Rafael Nadal match at the US Open. However, they got quite the shock when the world number one's opponent, A-lister actor Liam Hemsworth strolled out onto the court. What was Liam doing there? Why had the man who played Gale in The Hunger Games suddenly turned to a life of professional tennis? Did he miss the bright lights of Hollywood? And was Miley sitting in the audience to cheer him on?

All of these questions were racing through our heads - that is, until we realised that, weirdly enough, it wasn't actually the Australian actor. Instead, it was Karen Khachanov, a Russian tennis player of Armenian descent. That's right, there are two people in this world who look like Liam Hemsworth. Try to keep calm.

Khachanov is pretty much Liam's doppelgänger/little brother

And once you see it

There's pretty much no going back

The 22-year-old played valiantly against Nadal, but ultimately lost the game

But it's not all bad - he is currently sitting pretty as men's singles world number 26

Unfortunately, he's not single

He married Veronika Shkliaeva back in 2016

But, hey, you can admire from afar as you watch him play tennis

It turns out a whole lot of people agree about him looking like Liam...

Including Karen himself, who addressed the issue when asked in an Instagram Story

So, there you have it

There are two of them

Dreams do come true after all
