Was there a long-lost fourth brother?

He may have been knocked out by Nick Kyrgios at the Australian Open, but it turns out tennis champ Karen Khachanov has another Aussie connection.
Tennis fans can't help but notice that the 23-year-old Russian sport star bears a striking resemblance to Australian actor and heartthrob, Liam Hemsworth.

Indeed, fans flocked to Twitter to share their disbelief at the similarity.
"Tell me #Khachanov is not #LiamHemsworth dobbleganger," one Australian Open fan penned on social media.
"Am I the only to think that #Khachanov is the fourth #Hemsworth brother??" another remarked.
This clearly isn't the first time Khachanov has been compared to the 30-year-old Hunger Games star.
Back in February 2019 when Liam's movie Isn't It Romantic came out, the tennis ace shared a screenshot of Liam Hemsworth's Instagram informing fans that he wouldn't be able to attend the premiere as well as a second image of a split screen image of himself and Liam.
"If I wasn't dealing with my own health issues at the moment I would have been more than happy to fill in for you @liamhemsworth ...," Khachanov joked in the caption.

But bad news if you feel like sliding into Khachanov's DMs- he's been married to his wife Veronika Shkliaeva since 2016.
As for Liam, he's still going strong with his new girlfriend Gabriella Brooks and was spotted on a recent romantic night out in Los Angeles.
"Liam feels comfortable with Gabriella," a source told US Weekly, adding, "His family approves of her and really likes her, which is very important to him."

Liam celebrated his recent 30th birthday privately but spent the festive season surrounded by friends and family, including big brother Chris Hemsworth and sister-in-law Elsa Pataky.
In a snap shared by Elsa, Liam could be seen sitting at the table enjoying Christmas lunch with everyone, hat and sunnies adorned.
Who knows, we could be seeing Gabriella at the table for Christmas 2020...
