trophy watch: chihuly-esque in adelaide


In case you missed the trophy Novak Djokovic won at the Next Generation Adelaide International this past January:


The 6-3, 6-7(6), 6-4 win over Australian Chris Guccione got him this platter that looks like a Dale Chihuly creation. He can set it next to his other glass trophy, that Yoshi Egg from Metz.

Bonus: You can see match point and the ceremony via this YouTube link. And yep, takes off his shirt to celebrate the win.

    You’ve touched my heart,
    You’ve helped me through,
    My pain and sorrow,
    which weren’t too few.

    You shared my smiles,
    and my tears.
    You were always there,
    to squelch my fears.

    To you my friend and confidant,
    I give my heart of love,
    My smiles of laughter,
    and the hope that,
    We will remain friends,
    forever and after.
    Cherished Friends

    God must have know there would be times we’d need a word of cheer,
    Someone to praise a triumph or brush away a tear.
    He must have known we’d need to share the joy of “little things”
    In order to appreciate the happiness life brings.
    I think He knew our troubled hearts would sometimes throb with pain,
    At trials and misfortunes, or goals we can’t attain.
    He knew we’d need the comfort of an understanding heart
    To give us strength and courage to make a fresh, new start.
    He knew we’d need companionship, unselfish….lasting….true,
    And so God answered the heart’s great need with Cherished Friends….like you!!
