Did Roger Federer steal Elena Vesnina's Indian Wells trophy? (Sort of)
Elena Vesnina topped fellow Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-7 (6), 7-5, 6-4, to win the BNP Paribas Open on Sunday at Indian Wells. As it was just her third career singles title, Vesnina was thrilled by the win.
During her victory press conference, she was interrupted by a tournament official who needed to take the trophy away from her as Roger Federer was closing in on his fifth Indian Wells title in the men's final and there was only one trophy in house.
Yes, that's right. There was just one trophy for the winners to pose with, so basically, Roger Federer stole her trophy. Her reaction to this news is PRICELESS:
For those concerned about about Vesnina not getting a trophy, fear not. She will eventually receive her very own personalized trophy that she doesn't have to share with Federer.
