Re: Which Tournaments/ past tourneys have the best trophies?
Of the Slams I definetely say AO followed by Wimbledon. The other two are shameful in comparison.
Of the Tier I's I'd say the whale and old Zurich trophy. I also like the Canadian Open racquet.
Of the rest of them I'd say Auckland, Hobart, Eastbourne, Linz and Tokyo. The Istanbul Cup looks nice and modern too.
I'm really not a fan of those crystal waterford ones that so many tournaments seem to use. They are all so boring and look like vases more than trophies.
