Hehe, I bet Anna Smashnova proudly displays this on her mantlepiece at home, not!!

I think the Canberra tournment needs to find a more attractive trophy!

Nice...if you like something completely warped and ugly ;)

Some of these tournies really need to reconsider the trophies they award...afterall they are ment to be prizes aren't they? ;)

It's supposed to have a 'tribal' or 'primative' aspect to it, a shrunken head would have sufficed for me.

Don't they usually give the champions a smaller replica of the trophy? Or is that only at Grand Slams? Cause then Anna could have a smaller piece of poo on her mantlepiece rather than a big one. ;)

A conversation about this trophy came up awhile back and I remember somebody suggested that the reason the tournament gave out such an ugly trophy is because the player winning it wouldn't want such a nasty thing and would not wanna take it home with them... therefore, saving the tournament some money! lol!!!

What the heck do you call that thing?

I guess it could be used to deter burglars. Either throw it at them or leave it out in plain site and they'll be standing there scratching their heads trying to figure out what it is, thus giving you time to call the cops. However probably the cops and the burglar would engage in a discussion about what that thing is.

Gross! I guess they don't have to worry about having to make a miniature for the player to take home.

It looks like something my dog leaves on the lawn in the morning.

Lets face it, the trophy has either intentionally or unintentionally accomplished it's objectives of being both 'noteworthy' and an 'object', after all, this is the second thread devoted to the subject and can anyone remember ANY discussion about ANY trophy whatsoever...

Well done !!!! Perhaps the next 'trophy' will consist of a plate of spaghetti or maybe a plastic food display that you find at some of the better Japanese restaurants. :drool:

LMAO!!! Well at least the tournament directors don't have to worry about anyone kissing that trophy...and now we all know why all the big names skip that tourney, they don't want to win it!

Deng, that is the most horrific trophy I have ever seen:o I know that was a Tier 1V that she won, but deng no trophy should look like that. I'm guessing the tournament was on a budget is a major understatement. :confused:
