God that's one ugly mfing Trophy Garcia just won. Hideous!

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

Looks like some zombie arm from a science laboratory or something.

I hope she keeps her trophies far, far away from her bedroom. That one is eager to choke a choker.

WHat is it about new tournament trophies

Surely it's more respectful to present a trophy that gives a sense of prestigue out? I find it slightly embarrassing comparing Birmingham's trophy with Queen's for example.

What a bizarre trophy. It looks really scary.

I think the Birmingham trophy is a very graceful shape, and the Queens one looks comically huge. Especially when it used to get held up by little Lleyton.

The Mallorca one is slightly the stuff of nightmares.

If I had it, I'd place it in a shadowy corner of the guest room where it could inadvertently catch the eye of unwary visitors and give them the screaming abdabs.

This thread is just too hilarious...

If Caroline likes The Addams Family, she must be thrilled to get her own Thing.
