Indian Wells Trophy

How eef-ing ugly is that trophy? And Jelena couldn't even lift the bloody thing. Whats the point in making it that bulky? I miss the whale trophy, it was one of my favorite trophies.

And here you are, a black unicorn.

Re: Indian Wells Trophy

Re: Indian Wells Trophy

I actually really like the trophy. It really is beautiful

Too bad they'll never learn. Vera couldn't hold it last year either

Re: Indian Wells Trophy

The Californian tournaments all have ugly trophies IMO (apart from the whale). It's a shame my fave won a majority of her titles there, and still managed to avoid the whale.

Anyway, I think this one is better than the pre-Whale "trophy".

Re: Indian Wells Trophy

Well, it is specifically designed so that the Williams sisters are the only ones who are able to lift it. They want to persuade them to play at Indian Wells again.



• Maria Sharapova • Dominika Cibulkova • Eugenie Bouchard • Garbine Muguruza •
• Andy Roddick • Mikhail Youzhny • Grigor Dimitrov • Novak Djokovic •

Re: wheres the freaking whale?

She already has one.

Mladjan, uh, keeps it in his pants.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: Indian Wells Trophy



Looks nice and "artsy"

The whale dildo will be missed, though.
