Yeah, Meesh, that's one of the ugliest trophies I have ever seen.

Imagine taking that trophy home? And where would you put it? In the attic where no one would ever see it? I think that's where I'd put it.

I think that that trophy is one of the best!

Its so well sculpted...it deserves to be in a museum, not as a trophy!

I've often wondered what the top players do with all these trophees.
Martina was interviewed by Swiss Newspaper after her win at the Adidas International in Sydney on the weekend and they asked her what she had done with last years trophy. They are the same each year and they are those big crystal things. She said it was at her home in Truebbach, Switzerland on the kitchen table as a fruit bowl. They asked her want she would do with this years and she laughed and said maybe she would use it as a vegetable bowl. :)

It's a shame, isn't it?

You go through a tournament and whip through the competition and to represent your accomplishment you walk away with THAT!

Or maybe the tournament is being cost-effective? Maybe they made the trophy ugly on purpose...so that the winner wouldn't want to take it home and wouldn't feel so bad without it?

That trophy looks like something they would have given to one of the Flintstones, must be a relic from the pleistocene era.
