04 Aug 8 Hilarious Tennis Trophies
In this big scary world of grand slams and reputable competitions, getting your tennis tournament to stand out can be a real issue. That is unless you have the red hot strategy of giving the winner a wild whacky trophy. Here are some of our favourite, uh, unique tennis awards out there.
The Generali Open Kitzbuhel
2006 – Agustin Calleri having a quick WTF moment with his brand new aluminium masterpiece.
The Mexican Open – ATP Acapulco
2013 – Rafa positively chuffed to have his new pear shaped paper weight matching with his bandaids. And a sombrero ¿por que no?
The Canadian Cup – Rogers Cup Toronto
2013 – Serena just having an old fashioned LOL.
Delray Beach Open Florida
2005 – Xavier Malisse proudly displaying his new glass pubic bone.
ATP Tashkent Open
1997 – This now defunct tour was the highlight of the Uzbekistani calendar, when they got the world’s best tennis players to dress up in traditional garb. Onya Uzbekistan
German Open Tennis Championships Hamburg
2015 – WE GET IT Germany. You are a trailblazing world leader in sustainable energy. Does it mean Rafa has to rub it in our face with a convincing grin and a winning thumbs up?
ATP Dubai – Dubai Tennis Championships
2012 – Federer wondering if Dubai is positioning itself as the world capital of whacky trophies’r’us. Meanwhile Murray is wondering if this is a functioning dagger.
Swiss Open Gstaad
2004 – Time has proven it to be the best trophy of all: nature’s living, breathing milk machine. Here we have a younger, more stylish Federer graciously accepting his home country’s lactose laden gift, freeing him from the shackles of the Coles/Woolies milk monopoly.
