'trophy watch' mourns loss of arbre de fanti

Oh Arbre de Fanti, we hardly knew ye. Your rugged oxidized copper branches (cradled and adored by Kolya) inspired us to start Tennis Served Fresh and our Trophy Watch. So I hope you know how devastated we are after learning that the BNP Paribas Masters (Paris) has replaced you; this year’s winner will hoist a trophy designed by ex-rugby player Jean-Pierre Rives.

I can only hope that this new creation lives up to your beauty. We’ll miss you.
