Lame question, but does anyone know why the trophy used for the YEC changes throughout the years? I included 1998-2000 because that was when the BJK Cup was introduced. But after that the crystal glass trophy since 2002 has been the same.

1998 - Hingis with a glass trophy and BJK Cup.

Posted the pics. 1998 had both, but not together, so just used the one.

One may be the offficial trophy (BJK cup), and the other may be the one they take home (glass).

I figured that, but then why was the BJK Cup no where to be seen during 2002-2005. Los Angeles doing it their own way?:lol:

She may have been given the glass trophy as well but I can't find any pictures

They didn't during the ceremony, but they had it out throughout the week. So I guess it is the version the winner gets to keep.
