Re: Which Tournaments/ past tourneys have the best trophies?

Wimbledon womens trophy is just about the nicest, the diamond racquet from Antwerp a close second, followed by the diamond tennis balls from the Hopman cup?

Re: Which Tournaments/ past tourneys have the best trophies?

What's so great about the Wimbledon trophy? It's so boring. Nothing but an ugly plate.

I like the Seoul trophy.



I love this one even though it's ATP

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.

Re: Which Tournaments/ past tourneys have the best trophies?

i realy like the moscow one. its not flashy or modern but it just looks realy fitting for a tennis cup/trophy.

i agree most of the glass bowls are boring and what do you do with them?

the oz open deffinately has the best womens grandslam trophy, its beautiful.
