Awkwardly shaped french trophies, frighteningly designed t-shirts and adorable plush Momochan. Here are some of the best pictures from the tennis week that was.

Gael Monfils: The Frenchman returned from injury in Metz to play his first tournament in four months. I said it last week and I’ll say it again. Welcome back, Gael.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga: Having successfully defended his 2011 title in Metz, Tsonga now has two of those things, which will make for a striking set of bookends.

Caroline Wozniacki: Look, it’s her first title in 13 months. You’d be kissing the trophy, too.

Maria Sharapova: I think we can all agree that those Evian headless baby shirts are pretty creepy. Even for Japan.

Petkovic Tokyo

Andrea Petkovic: That’s one of the Toray Pan Pacific Open mascots, Momochan. She is hands-down my favorite tournament mascot. Plus she got that big smile out of Petko, so what’s not to love?

Andy Roddick: Who knew retirement looked so… plaid?

Sharapova Tokyo

Maria Sharapova: Should we really be mic’ing up Maria on a tennis court? I’m just asking.

Mahesh Bhupathi: “Is it safe to come out?” No, Mahesh. I assure you it most certainly is not.

Janko Tipsarevic: Tennis’ resident hipster pops on his shades, grabs some fresh coconut water, and joins in a friendly game of checkers in Singapore. The only thing missing from this picture is an Instagram filter.

Caroline Wozniacki: Once again, Stella McCartney shows she’s got one idea too many. The blue top looks great, as do the blue and white skirt and black shoes. But why does Caro look like she’s been duct taped around the waist? Why, Stella? Why?

    Love the quips, Courtney! But as an Asian, you should totally have realized Janko is watching people play Chinese chess, definitely NOT checkers!

     @jtcambodia Don't worry, I was well aware after years of playing it with my father. But "checkers" worked better rhythmically for me. Please don't revoke my membership.
