In the United States, the Open United Tennis Championship is a tough tennis tournament. The tournament is the modern version of one of the world's oldest tennis championships, the US National Championship, which first played men's singles and men's doubles in 1881.


Since 1987, the US Open has been chronologically the fourth and final Grand Slam of the year. The other three, chronologically, are the Australian Open, the French Open, and Wimbledon. The US Open begins on the last Monday in August and runs for two weeks, with the average weekend coinciding with the US Labor Day holiday.


The tournament consists of five main championships: men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles and mixed doubles. The tournament also includes competitions for seniors, juniors and wheelchair users. Since 1978, the tournament has been played on acrylic hard courts at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, Queens, New York. The US Open is organized and owned by the non-profit United States Tennis Association (USTA), and the US Open is chaired by Patrick Galbraith. Proceeds from ticket sales, sponsorships and television contracts are used to develop tennis in the United States.


Bemorepanda collected some funny memes about the championship.

The US Open uses standard 7-point tiebreaks in every set of a singles match. For the other three Grand Slam tournaments, there are specific scoring methods for a match that scores 6โ€“6 in the last possible set (third for women and fifth for men): in the French Open, the deciding set continues as long as the player leads the two matches , in Australia an extended tie-break is played to 10 points, while at Wimbledon a standard tie-break is only played if the score of the game reaches 12โ€“12. As with the US Open, these tournaments use tiebreaks to decide other sets.


The tournament was first played in August 1881 on the grass courts at the Newport Casino in Newport, Rhode Island. That year, only clubs that were members of the United States National Tennis Association (USNLTA) were allowed. Richard Sears won the men's singles event at this tournament, which was the first of his seven consecutive singles titles.

From 1884 to 1911, the tournament used a challenge system whereby the defending champion automatically qualified for the next year's final, where he played as the winner of the all-comers' tournament.


In the early years of the U.S. National Championship, only men competed, and the tournament was known as the U.S. National Men's Singles Championship. In September 1887, six years after the men's nationals were first held, the Philadelphia Cricket Club hosted the first U.S. Women's National Singles Championship. The winner was 17-year-old Philadelphian Ellen Hansell. The same year, the men's doubles event was held at the Orange Lawn Tennis Club in South Orange, New Jersey.

6.Yup


7.See the difference


8.Tennis be like


Women's tournaments used the competitive system from 1888 to 1918, with the exception of 1917. From 1890 to 1906, sectional tournaments were held in the east and west of the country to determine the top two doubles teams, which competed in the playoffs for the right to compete with the defending champions in the qualifying round.


The 1888 and 1889 men's doubles competition was played at the Staten Island Cricket Club in Livingston, Staten Island, New York. In the 1893 championship, men's doubles was played at St. George's Cricket Club in Chicago.

In 1892, the U.S. Mixed Doubles Championship was introduced, and in 1899, the U.S. National Women's Doubles Championship.


In 1915, the national championship was moved to the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills, Queens, New York. Efforts to move it to New York began as early as 1911 when a group of tennis players led by New Yorker Carl Behr began working on it.


In early 1915, a group of about 100 tennis players signed a petition to postpone the tournament. They argued that the majority of tennis clubs, players, and fans were located in the New York area, and therefore it would be beneficial for the development of the sport to host a national championship there. This opinion was opposed by another group of players, which included eight former national singles champions. This controversial issue was put to a vote at the USNLTA's annual meeting on February 5, 1915, with 128 votes in favor and 119 against. In August 1915 at the West Side Tennis Club, Forest Hills, New York City's first women's tournament was held at the Philadelphia Cricket Club in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia (the women's singles tournament was not rescheduled until 1921). From 1917 to 1933, the men's doubles competition was held at Longwood Cricket Club in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. In 1934 Longwood Cricket Club hosted doubles events for both men and women.

From 1921 to 1923 the men's singles tournament was played at the Germantown Cricket Club in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He returned to the West Side Tennis Club in 1924 after the completion of the 14,000 seat Forest Hills Stadium. Although it was already considered by many to be a major championship, the International Lawn Tennis Federation officially named it one of the world's biggest tournaments, having started in 1924.


The open era began in 1968 when professional tennis players were allowed to compete for the first time at a Grand Slam tournament held at the West Side Tennis Club. The previous US National Championship was limited to amateur players. With the exception of the mixed doubles, all events at the 1968 national tournament were open to professionals. That year, 96 men and 63 women entered the competition, with a total prize pool of US$100,000. In 1970, the US Open became the first Grand Slam tournament to use a tiebreak to determine a 6โ€“6 set in games.


From 1970 to 1974, the US Open used a sudden death nine-point tiebreaker before moving into the International Tennis Federation (ITF) best-of-twelve points system. In 1973, the US Open became the first Grand Slam tournament in which men and women received equal prize money, with that year's singles champions, John Newcomb and Margaret Court, receiving US$25,000 each. In 1975, following complaints about the surface and its effect on ball bounce, the tournament was played on clay courts rather than grass, this was also an experiment to make it more "television friendly". The addition of floodlights allowed matches to be played at night.
