When did the US Open get new trophies for the singles winners? I noticed that the 1967 trophies are nothing like what's presented now. I wonder what happened to the old ones.

1968 or 1969. Margaret Court had the trophy that is still used today when she won in 1969. There are no pics for 1968 of Virginia Wade. I'd assume for the Open Era they got the new trophies, but not sure:)

EDIT: Finally found a picture of Virginia Wade with the today trophy, so the answer is 1968:)
