Monica certainly seems to like it, i found this quote on Tennisinternet

On the trophy "It's a beautiful trophy, one of the prettiest I've won in all my titles. It seems to be all hand painted, and I am going to take very good care of it at home".

Cool

thanks Tennisfan <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">. But I don't know if they have put Monica's name onto the vase? otherwise it doesn't seem liked a proper trophy?

That is a nice vase!!!!!

Maybe they thought it would be a functional trophy???? I have no clue. Have they always done it like this?????


I'd prefer a trophy,personally. Monica has enough money to BUY a vase like that.

Just an observation. Monica keeps her trophies in boxes in the garage, and has commented on this several times over the years. I've gotten the distinct impression that she feels displaying them is not her...(humble).

It seems by her comments here, that the vase (which is indeed lovely) will not suffer the same fate as her trophies. So for Monica, it seems a better fit than the more traditional trophies.

EC! I was just going to ask that!


Well, for this one, I think she'll make an exception.

If not, she can always give it to me! <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">
