History of the US Open

The US Open is one of tennis’ four major tournaments, and is a part of the Grand Slam. It is held annually at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in the Queens borough of New York City and is the official national championship of the United States. The US Open was first held in 1881 on the grass courts of Newport Casino in Newport, Rhode Island. Throughout the tournament’s history, it has undergone many changes both in terms of venues and tournament format.

Venue History

The tournament remained in Newport until 1915 after which it moved to the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills, Queens, where it stayed until 1977. The West Side Tennis Club was succeeded by the USTA National Tennis Center located in Flushing Meadows in 1978, which was the most recent home for the tournament for 25 years until 2003 when the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center was opened.

Tournament Format Changes

The first decade of the US Open witnessed a domination of amateurs, especially from American players, but by the 70s the tournament started to include increasing numbers of professional players. In 1968 the US Open adopted the Open Era, introducing four weeks of preliminary matches, with a championship match play format. In later years the tournament made further modifications, such as the introduction of tiebreakers in 1973 and making the tournament available to women players in 1973.

Awards System

The tournament has also seen a transformation in its awards system, with the introduction of the US Open Cup after it became a professional championship event. This event is designed to honor the achievements of the best players of the tournament over the calendar year and is awarded to the players with the best performance throughout the tournament. This prestigious award is widely sought after by tennis players all over the world.

Notable US Open Moments

Over the years, there have been many remarkable US Open moments that have thrilled tennis fans around the world. One such moment occurred in 1985 when unseeded 16-year-old Mats Wilander won the US Open, shocking the tennis world with an upset of a highly ranked favorite.

Another memorable US Open moment was the 2009 men’s final, when Roger Federer won in a grueling five-set match against Andy Roddick. Federer’s win secured him a record-setting sixth consecutive US Open title, and cemented his place as one of the all-time greats in tennis.

In 2017, Sloane Stephens made history with her Grand Slam victory, becoming the first American woman since Venus Williams to win at the US Open. A year later, Naomi Osaka won her first Grand Slam title after defeating favorite Serena Williams in the women’s singles final. This moment in the spotlight set off worldwide celebrations of Osaka’s impressive victory, and further illuminated the important contribution of diversity to the sport of tennis.

Other legendary US Open moments include 2009’s ‘The Shot’ when Juan Martín del Potro hit an incredible backhand winner against Roger Federer in the men’s final. In 2018, Sean Madison and Jack Sock made a remarkable comeback in the doubles final, overcoming an 0-2 deficit to win the match. Lastly, the 2009 US Open marked the last professional tournament of Roger Federer’s career – a tremendous goodbye to the greatest player in modern tennis.
