Seeing Double

It takes a little longer for news to reach the Midwest, but finally The Detroit Free Press has weighed in on the Arianne Caoili story:
A few months ago, we had an item on Alexandra Kosteniuk, a Russian woman described as the Anna Kournikova of chess.

Now we see a story on Arianne Caoili, 19, an Australian player who the Aussie media say is the Anna Kournikova of chess. How many Annas are there in chess? What goes on in those chess clubs?
