Laver Cup – September 22-24, 2023
In September, the Laver Cup saw some of the best tennis players on the planet converge on Vancouver. Watching on, were team captains and all-time greats, Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe, and one of the sport’s most easily identifiable pieces of silverware.
Made in honour of the man known as the Rockhampton Rocket, the Rod Laver trophy is a dramatic reflection of his extraordinary career, and the excitement that surrounds the annual tournament named in his honour.
For the modern player, the trophy is a history lesson in itself, with the 200 hand-engraved notches around its rim graphically depicting every single titles won by Laver in an extraordinary 22-year career which bridged both the amateur and professional era.
