the wimbledon gentlemen's singles trophy

That’s Roger Federer hoisting his 2007 Wimbledon trophy.

Again from Off the Baseline‘s Fact File: the trophy stands 18.5 inches and has a 7/5-inch diameter. The cup itself is inscribed “The All England Lawn Tennis Club Single Handed Champion of the World” and also champions’ names. The lid is decorated with a pineapple, and beneath each cup’s handle rests a head covered with a winged helmet. “There are two decorative borders with floral work and oval styled moldings on the bowl of the Cup and on the handles.”

    Or you can check out this random Flickr photo. I saw the cup up close while I was there, and it’s pretty freaking cool.

    Glad you enjoyed the Fact Guide.
