U.S. Open Tennis Championship
The U.S. Open Tennis Championship is a hard-court tennis tournament held annually in August and September over two weeks at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City, United States. The US Open is the only Grand Slam that uses tiebreakers in every set of matches, including the final set.
The U.S. Open (commonly referred to as the U.S.O.) is an annual event on the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) calendar. It takes place at various locations in the United States. The tournament is the modern incarnation of one of the oldest tennis championships globally, having been founded in 1881 under its original title of the U.S. National Championships (1881–1917). It is also sometimes referred to as Flushing Meadows because it was first played at a site in Flushing Meadows Park, Queens, New York City, from 1968 to 1977 before moving to its current site on hard courts at Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (NTC), also located in Queens, New York City since 1978; both locations are part of New York City's borough of Queens. The tournament was not held from 1915 to 1919 because of World War I and was played indoors.
Since its inception in 1881, the US Open has evolved from an exclusive men's singles. It is a doubles tournament with just 50 participants to a Grand Slam tournament with over 200 best players worldwide competing for the ultimate prize. The US Open is a leading international tennis tournament played on hard courts from August 29 to September 11, 2022, at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City. The game – a Grand Slam event – is one of the most prestigious events globally, with prize money of US$57.5 million.
