What do you think are the nicest looking trophies and the ugliest ones?

For me, Wimbledon wins hands down.

I'm sorry the Indian Wells trophy is the worst. No, and I do mean no one can make it look good or walk away in a photo shoot with dignity hoisting it.

Roger, Daniela, Justine, Kim, and Maria?


God, have they all tried!


Is it a giant rotten banana, a big turd, perhaps a giant slug?

No, it's a whale. :tape:

The Wimbledon and Antwerp trophies are the best, especially in the hands of Venus.

I hope Vee goes back to Antwerp and recalims that Antwerp title. That diamond encrusted racket was MADE for her, not for Amelie!

Speaking of tragic trophy moments, Mary Pierce once quoted that when she won the AO she wasn't aware that she couldn't take the original trophy home. As she proceeded down under the tunnel, she was stopped with trophy and all by the organizers and was told she would get a down-sized version... considerably downsized, no taller than your average 2litre cocke bottle.

Blonde moment I guess.

I don't like the glass ones, they're so boring. Except Miami, Amelia Island and San Diego.
