trophy watch: a diamond racket


Dear Istanbul Open,

Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, I know. But if you wanted a special trophy, couldn’t you have encrusted something else in diamonds?

Even your longevity gimmick isn’t new: the folks at the Proximus Games has the win-three-get- one-really-expensive-tennis-racquet-free deal covered.

How about bedazzling a tennis ball? A dampener? A cap? Wait. Someone’s done the cap already, too.

You’re on the right track with trying to differentiate from the pack, though. We really like that.

with love,

Tennis Served Fresh
