Default Funny/Weird/Unique/Ugly Trophies

Here's a thread where we can post pictures of funny, weird, unique, and/or ugly tennis trophies. Please feel free to contribute, and if possible specify the tournament and year the trophy is from.

And while I'm sure we could all happily snicker over photos of WTA players kissing suggestively shaped trophies, let's try to stick to the ATP players.

There was one with Marat and Ferrero, and the trophy was enormous. Someone could dig it up and post it here.

i really like the IW whale trophy. imo, the best.

there are far too many cups and especially plates and trays.

i'm surprised none (that i know of) are statues of tennis players.

Look at Guga's expression in that picture of the IW trophy ceremony. He's so happy despite having just lost 6-1, 6-1. With Hewitt's odd trophy, one could easily mistake Guga for the winner...He's the best.

I'd like to see Novak trying to persuade the guys at the Customs Office that these are tennis trophies.


And what about Zagreb? Better not win this unless you have had some weightlifting training.

This is also known as the SOAT: 'significant other appreciation trophy'.
It is to keep company to Andy's girlfriend while he's away on the tour.

When I first saw this, I always thought it looked like a candy dish. If I went over to his house and saw it on a table, I would really say, "Nice dish.''

Typical for this to happen to Marat.
What happened to the trophy? Did it break?

The look on Ferrero's and the man with the glasses' face are priceless.
