I just saw this one from Delray Beach, there's one I hope Rafa never wins. SO inappropriate! lol

Then there's the new madrid one that's really really stupid.

Add more if you like. I know Fed had some really weird ones from his early years. Since I don't know which tournaments, I can't find them!

Edit: the powers of google

This is SO bizzare

This one is epic win, but I remember it got taken down last time someone posted it LOL, and it isn't weird or ugly, it's HOT with a nice lady, lol

^^ LOL, I know that one's popped up a few times. It isn't a tennis one though, is it? Looks like golf or something.

Golf I believe. I'd love organizers who have enough courage to come up with a trophy like that in a tennis tournament though.:)

Yeah, that's because in the background it says "Longs drugs challenge." But that's the name of an American chain of drug stores, it shouldn't be taken as drug apology, people sometimes are too sensitive. And kids, don't do drugs.

Actually Madrid's doesn't look too bad to me, it has a pleasant steampunk vibe. Maybe with a fishbowl and a couple AA batteries you can turn it into a plasma ball.

That green one that Monfils has-looks like an alien egg from the movie. Who would give out a trophy with a boat propeller on it (see Davydenko)? That looks more appropriate for the America's Cup race (do they still have that?)

I guess it's from the BMW Open and it's the propeller of an airplane? Not entirely sure.

Certainly not.

The one and only World Cup is the best trophy in all sport. Holding it gives the best possible image of victory.

Dubai, Fed gets a dagger and Djoko a sailboat. I don't think they are ugly, just odd.

I would agree. But if Caroline showed up at my door with that soup bowl, that bottle champagne and that smile, I wouldn’t turn her away.
