US Open Tennis - History

The US Open Tennis Tournament is one of the major tennis events of the year. Played at the USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing, NY each year. It is held annually in August and September over a two-week period (the weeks before and after Labor Day weekend).

Over the years, more than the other three Grand Slams, the tournament has changed its name, location, choice of playing surface and the rules. It is now the richest tennis tournament in the world with over $14.5m in prize money.
