It's a design of an Ion Tiriac building.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Ivan Ljubicic held up a rather phallic trophy last year I remember...can't remember what it was though, but it certainly looked awkward for all involved.
