[Luxus+ Magazine] The prestige of the French Open trophies

Novak Djokovic or Barbora Krejčíková remain among the big names of the fortnight of French Open thanks to their victory this weekend. On the occasion of the winners’ triumphs, each of them received a cup in each of their categories. A look back at the prestige of these trophies, designed by the House of Mellerio in 1979.

 

With French Open now behind us, the trophies were all given to the great winners of the Grand Slam tournament. Whether in singles or doubles, the honor of receiving a trophy symbolizes one’s talent on clay and is priceless to the players. But this tradition has not always been in place, especially at the very beginning of the tournament.

 

Prior to 1953, there were no cups or financial rewards: winners received only simple rewards such as vouchers for clothing and equipment. Later on, the situation changed and the winners received a medal. In the 1950s, trophies were awarded to the winners, before being modernized in 1979 and the appearance of the cups we know today.
