Tennis Trophies: the funky, bad, and ugly!



While I fully appreciate the artistry and the idea of being creative, this has got 2b one of the worse trophies ever presented. It looks like a magical wand of some sort...FAIL!

Here are some other "interesting" trophies:

It looks like very unique dildo or something like this. Serena looks excited!

Serena's face says it all. She knows it, we know it, but somehow, Madrid didn't know it.

Re: WTF kinda trophy is that?!

The organizers [of this tournament] want to position themselves as being the cutting edge of innovation in tennis; always thinking out of the box, one step ahead of the other events.
Expect more unusual and "whacky" stuff in coming years.
Tiriac comes accross as an eccentric fellow who will keep pushing the envelope and is oblivious to criticism.

Apparently her name is already on it

It has a "staircase of tennis racquets" paying homage to the greatest Grand Slam winners of all time.

Re: WTF kinda trophy is that?!

I'm quite sure Serena couldn't care less what the trophy looks like. If the check doesn't clear the bank, on the other hand, then Ion Tiriac will have Serena's undivided attention.

Strangely enough, Serena said in her book that she cares more about the trophies than the checks

She lied. From 1968 on, they all cared more about the money.
