Their HM: Tennis Trophies

I think this could be a nice thread.
We've seen so many both interesting and awkward trophies throughout the history of WTA.
So, my question would be:
1. What's your favourite/least favourite Grand Slam trophy?
and
2. What's your favourite/least favourite WTA Tour trophy?

I must say I'm gutted by the IW trophy. It's so awful and disproportional. And heavy.
I like the Aussie Open trophy. It's somehow majestic.
I also remember that awkward Luxembourg trophy from last year, and I've loved soooo much the dolphin IW trophy.
PS. You can also post a picture of the trophies, if you want to.

Well it's still much better than the thing Dementieva got in Paris 2010:




I personally love:

That's a great trophy


Like this one too, very unique


Also love the Kremlin Cup trophy

And I dislike:

And all the others boring US Tournament Glass Trophies (Stanford, Charleston, New Haven, Memphis)


And this is one of the worst I've ever seen

N. VAIDISOVA - T. GOLOVIN - A. BONDARENKO - A. SZAVAY
D. HANTUCHOVA - A. PAVLYUCHENKOVA - E. VESNINA - E. SVITOLINA
J. GOERGES - A. WOZNIAK - Y. WICKMAYER - E. BOUCHARD - Ka. PLISKOVA

Didn't we have a thread like this before? I hate the Birmingham gravy dish the most.

Did you not learn your animals in school? It's clearly a WHALE.

I've always called it a dolphin trophy. I know it's a whale, but habits are a sick thing.

That is fucking... beyond hideous, possibly evil. And she's kissing it I would turn it down upon winning, or just not play the tournament.

Re: Their HM: Tennis Trophies

The players don't care about the trophies. They only care about the check clearing the bank.

It's great that the players have elected you to speak for them...

Re: Their HM: Tennis Trophies

The Oz Open and Wimbledon trophies are the best. By far.

Halep Kvitova Venus
Shvedova Babos

Best of the Other events

2. 's-Hertogenbosch
3. Luxembourg
4. Quebec City
5. Cincinnati - What the fuck is that?
