I don't know if it had been discussed before, i just want you to rank Grand Slam trophies on a scale from 1 to 5.

IMHO, for men:
Wimby 5:worship:
USO 4,8
FO 4,6
AO 4

... and for women:
AO 5!!!!!!!!(gorgeous)
FO 5
Wimby 4,9
USO 4

The whole atmosphere during Wimbledon is amazing, trophy included. :)

I don't know exactly how they look like.

Except for the Wimbledon trophys, Rosewater Dish and the men's trophy. They have class and tradition.

Others are compared to that "seelenloses Blech" as we in Germany say.

At least French Open Trophy has a name, the Coup du Musketaire. At least something,
But look at the trophy and you'll find names engraved that shouldn't make it on such a trophy.
Second class players as Gaudio, Costa, Jausovec etc etc.

Can't we merge this with the "Basel's trophy" thread?

All GS trophies are wonderful. Those in reward for playing on lower surfaces are similar, just as those for Wimby and USO

Can you clarify this for me, please:

Take Wimby for example:

How came the names of all the champions(since 1877) find their place on the trophy? Are the letters so small that you'll normally need a magnifying glass to read them?:confused:

Wimbledon's womens trophy is the best. All the others are just boring cups.
