Do players keep the trophies or does each tournament just have the 1?

For example does Federer have 7 identical Wimbledon trophies in his house or has he (and every other champion) just lifted up the same trophy every year and the tournament keeps it?

I wouldn't imagine it would cost them much to just make a new one each year and let the winer keep it.

Also is it the same for all tournaments? I just chose Wimbledon as an example.

Yes, Federer has 7 trophies at home.

Wimbledon has the main trophy and the winners get replicas.

Years ago when Bjorn Borg was in financial trouble, he wanted to auction off his Wimbledon trophies.

The original idea was that the trophy is something that the club has that you get to lift when you win and maybe even have your name inscribed on it.

Wimbledon originally had a tradition of giving the trophy to someone who had won three times. Renshaw put a stop to that because he won it six times in a row and good trophies are expensive so they decided to get the gold glided pineapple topped cup we know today and keep it at the club.

Nowadays players get replicas they get to keep which can differ from tournament to tournament, for example the Wimbledon replica is scaled down whereas the US Open one is full scale and so on.

At lower tournaments I imagine they do not spend that much money on their trophies since they are usually a little metal thing or glass vase so I guess the players get to keep those.

i do wonder the same but for the sameller events,because in the majos the winner gets a replica to take home, but i wonder about non-majos tournaments that have big trophies like halle,queens,barcelona,basel,beijing, since those are huge trophies, also maybe indian wells because i know that one is quite heavy(dont know how much but those guys have trouble lifting it,even the women cannot lift it sometimes)
