Do players get to keep their trophies?

After a player wins a tournament, do they get to keep the trophy they are presented with at the trophy ceremony? Or do they keep a replica afterwards. I know at the Grand Slams, they are given a smaller sized replica, and at ATP Masters events, they get presented with the same ugly glass(?) trophies.

Re: Do players get to keep their trophies?

It depends on what kind of trophy is is.

I assume they keep crystal bowls, art, and things like that.
They don't keep trophies that are engraved and represented. In that case, they get a replica.

I know at Wimbledon, the champions get a smaller replicer of the dish. I think that is the case with most of the tournaments.

Let them eat cake.

Re: Do players get to keep their trophies?

You don't get the trophy, that's not what winning tournaments are. It's the level of prestige, prize money, seeing your name being engraved, just the feeling of winning. I don't think players just win tournies to get the trophy.

Re: Do players get to keep their trophies?

For me, getting a replica seems like "asking for gold, but getting lead instead". It seems so.... worthless.

I remember Justine showing all her replicas of Slams won (and her gold medal too) in "No Strings Attached"... but sadly I can't find any pic of it...

yeah but wouldn't it be stupid if there were more then 50 venus rosewater dishes That would so NOT make it unique. I think players find it a lot more worthy if their name is engraved just on the 1.
