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. :o

I actually really like the trophy. It really is beautiful

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

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. :sobbing:

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

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. :rolls:

Looks nice and "artsy":shrug:

The whale dildo will be missed, though. http://i296.photobucket.com/albums/mm170/MeSuhsie/har%20har/emot-55.gif

also the bnp paribas speaker kept making all these mistakes when talking, and did a horrible job of covering himself and seeming professional.

He managed to mispronounce Charlie Pasarell's name something like 7 times and didn't even get it right.

I miss the whale!

But that was a different sponsor's emblem.

So sad to see the end of that pretty trophy.

This new Baccarat trophy looks good, but it isn't even a vase, and it is way too heavy.

I don't like it. It's the same for all 4 events.

As for the lifting, Rafa lifted the trophy last year, so maybe they just prefer not to.

That was not the biggest fail. The CEO's speech as a MASSIVE EPIC FAIL.

maybe thats why Dani didn't win here this year again, because she understands that theres no point if you cant get the whale...

Mar 22nd, 2010, 04:26 AM
Dani decided winning was useless as soon as she learned the weight of the new trophy..:lol: (as someone mentioned only Serena can hold it. indirectly a nice inducement to lure her back :lol:)

Really? :lol: it was a whale after the title sponsor Pacific Life ;)

I like the design of the new trophy but the players should be given a trophy they can lift without injuries :)

OMG, the Madrid trophy is like the most hidious I have ever seen. The IW trophy is 10 times better than the Madrid. Has anyone seen it. What do you think it looks like? I have my thoughts but will keep them to myself.

http://oi48.tinypic.com/fu48wm.jpgKudos to Serena for not shoving that monstrosity up the organizers' bums.
I mean, it looks like an alien probe or like it should be screwed into something mystical.
Give her a platter trophy, for crying out loud.
You can't go wrong with a platter.
Plus, the winner can use it to serve food and as a conversation starter.
Whereas, small kids have to leave the room before Serena can whip out that retractable phallic symbol.
