it has to be one of the most beautiful trophies in the world-more recognisable than the mens
actually if i ever won the mens tournament, i think id ask for the ladies trophy-show some love for the big plate :)

The men's trophy is shameful compared to the women's. Wimbledon and AO are definetely my favourite slam trophies. French is too small and US is :yawn:

agreed.
but the trophies the players keep, the replicas Wimbledon is the smallest and USO and AO are biggest

It's beautiful alright! Even it's name is beautiful...the Venus Rosewater dish.

The AO and USO trophies look quite similar to me. A cup is a cup, although the French one is a coupe...a little better.

All the GS, bar USO have beautiful trophies, i just wished they gave bigger replicas to the winners, cos the tiny replicas the winners get are ridiculous. :(

The Eastbourne trophy looks good. And Queens for the men

And I suppose it's even more beautiful that Venus wins the Venus Rosewater Dish so often, right? ;)

the USO trophy is forgettable. its more like a tier 3 trophy. The Wimbledon trophy is like no other, hence why its so special. The AO trophy looks too 'new' - it doesnt seem to have a history just by looking at it

:haha: @ "mixed in there" She's a strong girl at the very least. She's crushing the sides like it's made out of aluminum! :eek:
