trophy watch 2007: Battle of the Surfaces

Yet another example of a different trophy format. This time, it’s from the Battle of the Surfaces between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer. Nadal beat Federer 7-5, 4-6, 7-6 (10). (May 2, 2007)

I know it’s just a plaque, but it looks as meticulously produced as the courts they played on.

Edit: From what I can tell, Nadal didn’t bite his plaque. If you know otherwise, drop me a line.

    That trophy is AWESOME! Clearly a cut above the rest. Do you know when they first moved away from silver urns and little gold figurines? Who was the forerunner to the modern tennis trophy?

    hey austy. A lot of tournaments still use “silver urns and little gold figurines,” which is why I wanted to give props to those who move away from that. Of course, there are some urns/cups that should stick around (like Fed Cup, Davis Cup, and the trophies for the Grand Slams)…

    How nice. A trivet.

    CBHM response:

    a trivet that only two people in the world have. that’s pretty cool.
