  • Francois the Postman: Reminded me of the time when diamant-city Antwerp wanted to add some sparkle to its tennis tournament and made a totally ott trophee (blink studded tennis-racket that looked spectacular when it was hit by lasers in a dark arena). You got to keep it if you won the tournament 3x in 5 years, which they assumed would be too tricksy. And Ivan Lendll nailed it in those 5 years.
