I'm having a big smile, because I seldom go there either and had to stop for a moment and think ... "where is the home page" lol

Had to do a whole new thing to get there lol

I think Scotsgeek's idea of Andy holding a trophy [preferably the Wimbledon one], is a fantastic idea! If we can't have that, [he has to win it first], the Queens Trophy is almost as impressive! I don't care if he's shaven or unshaven!

I definitely don't think the Queens Trophy would be suitable - it's kind of an "also ran" tournament and would perhaps just emphasise the lack of a slam ??

But then again Mark, I'm notoriously finicky and difficult to please, so perhaps you should just ignore me ... Very Happy

I wouldn't describe it as an 'also ran' at all, but wouldn't disagree the Wimbledon Trophy would be 'tops'!

It was an ATP thing (wasn't it ??).  Actually, if that is the case (ATP) would it be allowable to use it?
Our previous one wasn't with permission either but we are a fan site, we don't have much choice. Worth noting the Tsonga website has been using the ATP image for years.

EDIT: Added link.

Compared to the Slams and Masters, it really is.  It also has the image of being just a tune up tournament.

Oh well, that sounds okay then.  I've never visited the Tsonga website ... will go and have a look.

Is this the Tsonga site Mark?

If it is, don't think the pic is truly representative of him at all ... hmmm

Quite tricky, changing the MW banner Very Happy

Well, that's your opinion Daisy, but you don't have to keep repeating yourself. I think we all got the message the first time!

No need to get snarky Caz.  Just simmer down and smell the flowers Very Happy

Also, I'm not stating my opinion, I stating facts.  Queens, while beautifully presented is low man on the totem pole - it's only worth 250 points.

How on earth did you find that awful website? It doesn't come above the one I meant on Google.

You see, I knew you wouldn't like these sort of modern and energetic photoshopped images because you're quite conservative about a lot of things.

I'm definitely not in step with some things - just a matter of personal preference.  But then again, I'm very much ahead of the game in other things.  I just have restrained, classical taste ... but, I know you already know this ... you just have to look at my Avatar Very Happy
