A Question About the Diamond Racquet

If by chance Venus were to win the racquet this year, will the tournament organizers create a new one next year, or is this a one-shot promotion? Anyone?

I suppose there will be a new one. It's a tradition going many years back. There used to be a men's tennis tournament in antwerp for years and they always had the diamond racquet...

JUSTINE H-H: 39 WTA-titles and counting...!

Good luck to K-lina Sprem, Venus, Tati Golovin, Daniela, and Lena D

I saw Venus with the diamond Racquet last night on ABC during a Prime Time Special. Very beautiful I must say; She was holding it up after winning one the tournament last year.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

As Kat. said, if Venus wins next week, they will make a new racket. I read somewhere that the tournament would make a profit this year provided Venus does not leave with the racket.
Now, I wonder who the organizers will cheer for ?
