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.

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 6–6 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 12–12. 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.


5.I forgot how to tennis


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.

10.No play with me


11.Telekinetic powers


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 6–6 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.

50-funny-memes-and-moments-about-this-year-2022-nhl-season-event

The 2021-2022 NHL Championship is the 105th season of the National Hockey League (NHL). The regular season kicked off on October 12, 2021 and will run through April 2022, followed by the Stanley Cup playoff series.


This season, the NHL has added a new Seattle club, the Seattle Kraken, bringing 32 clubs to the 2021-2022 Championship - 7 from Canada and 25 from the United States. The Seattle Kraken play in the Pacific Division of the Eastern Conference and the Arizona Coyotes have moved to the Central Division.


Thus, this season, the league returned to its usual divisions, each of which now has 8 teams and a division into the Western and Eastern Conferences (due to restrictions last season, there were virtually no conferences and the Canadian Division was created).


During the regular season 2021-2022, all clubs play 82 matches (last season only 56), each team will play each at least twice. The match calendar includes a break for the 2022 Olympics from February 4th to 22nd.


Bemorepanda collected some funny memes about the new season.


1.The Islanders have fans


2.All I want


3.Like a boss


The National Hockey League is a professional sports organization that brings together the hockey teams of the United States and Canada. Nowadays, most experts recognize the NHL as one of the strongest on the planet. It should be noted that at the moment it is one of the main sports leagues in North America, along with the NBA, NFL and Major League Baseball. The league was formed on November 26, 1917, and on December 19, 1917, the first season began, uniting only 4 teams.


   By the end of the 1930/1931 season, a total of 10 teams were playing in the NHL, vying each year for the league's top prize, the Stanley Cup. Originally, the Stanley Cup was played between the winner of the NHL and the winner of the Western professional hockey leagues, and since 1926 the Cup has become the full property of the NHL. However, the Great Depression, and various financial difficulties after it, dealt a severe blow to the league and the NHL was reduced to six teams. These teams, which have played in the league for 25 years since 1942, are still known as the "Big Six" (Original Six) - "Montreal Canadiens", "Toronto Maple Leafs", "Detroit Red Wings", "Boston Bruins", New York Rangers and Chicago Blackhawks.


4.A 5 dollar


5.Only Patrick here


6.Every time I make a save


7.I become anything


In the mid-1960s, teams began to emerge in the minor leagues, especially from the western United States, that could compete with the NHL teams. The strengthening of the Western Hockey League, which experts predicted its transformation into a league equal in strength to the NHL, as well as financial considerations prompted the NHL in 1967 to undertake the first expansion since the 1920s. Six more teams were admitted to the league, which formed a new division. They were the Philadelphia Flyers, St. Louis Blues, Minnesota North Stars, Los Angeles Kings, Oakland Seals and Pittsburgh Penguins. Three years later, the Vancouver Canucks and Buffalo Sabers joined the league.


   In 1972, the World Hockey Association (WHA) was formed. Although the WHA never submitted a proposal to the NHL for a joint Stanley Cup, everyone recognized the league's strength and considered it a worthy competitor to the NHL. In this regard, the NHL decided to urgently continue its expansion policy and added the New York Islanders and Atlanta Flames to the league in 1972, and the Kansas City Scouts and Washington Capitals two years later.


8.Pulling 2 teeth


9.For sure


10.French girls


However, the increase in the number of teams in the league caused a decrease in the overall level of the game. These leagues fought for strong players until the collapse of the WHA in 1979. Four WHA teams have joined the NHL: Hartford Whalers, Quebec Nordics, Edmonton Oilers and Winnipeg Jets. The Edmonton Oilers are currently the last team from the WHA to continue to be based in the same city where they were based. Quebec Nordics, Winnipeg Jets and Hartford Whalers have now changed their name and moved to other cities.


   The NHL has continued to expand, and since the 2000/2001 season, the number of teams in the league has increased to its current maximum of 30 teams from 29 cities in the United States and Canada. Of the 30 teams in the National Hockey League, 7 are in Canada and 23 are in the United States. All NHL clubs have their own "farm clubs" - the so-called subsidiary teams, where hockey players who have failed to break into the main team play.


11.So funny


12.Snipes


13.Hey Patrick


14.Roberto


At the moment, the NHL has the following structure: there are two conferences in the NHL, each with three divisions, and each division with five teams. In the regular season, each team plays 82 games - 41 home and 41 away, each team playing at least one game with every other team in the league. The team gets two points for winning, the team gets one point for losing in overtime or in shootouts, and none for losing in regular time. At the end of the regular season, the team with the most points in its division becomes the division champion (points from games with all teams are taken into account, not just the teams of its division). Division winners and top 5 other teams from each conference advance to the playoffs and compete for the Stanley Cup.

2022-australian-open-funny-memes-and-tweets-to-mark-the-beging-of-the-famous-tennis-tournament

The Australian Open Tennis Championships is one of the four Grand Slam tournaments currently held in the Australian city of Melbourne on the courts of the local sports complex Melbourne Park. The main draws of the competition are traditionally held in a two-week period at the end of January - the beginning of February, revealing the winners in nine categories: in five for adults and four for senior juniors.


The tournament was first held in Melbourne in 1905 and was called The Australasian Championships. 17 athletes took part in it, and 5 thousand spectators attended the final match. In 1927, the tournament was renamed the Australian Championships. In 1969, it became open to professionals and received its current name.


Bemorepanda collected some funny memes about Australia Open 2022.


1.Aus Open


2.Sport Star


3.The party life


4.Stepped in what


Beginning in 1905, the championship was held in six different locations:


Melbourne (54 times)

Sydney (17 times)

Adelaide (14 times)

Brisbane (7 times)

Perth (3 times)

New Zealand (2 times, in 1906 and 1912).


In 1972, the decision was made to hold the tournament in the same city every year. The venue was the grass courts of the Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club, a suburb of Melbourne. Over time, the Quyong Club became too small for a much larger tournament. By the beginning of the championship in 1988, the construction of a new tennis complex Melbourne Park (Melbourne Park, former Flinders Park, Flinders Park) was completed, where the tournament was moved that year. The move was a significant success - match attendance immediately increased and the 1988 tournament saw 90% more spectators (266,436) than the previous year's Quy Ong (140,000).

In addition to problems with Cuyong Stadium (where, among other things, there was a slope that caused players on one side of the main court to literally walk uphill when they reached the net), the popularity of the Australian Open in the late 1970s and early 1980s professionalization of tennis negatively influenced. Leading players at that time were already earning such large sums that they could even afford to miss the Grand Slam tournament due to the fact that a trip to it meant missing the Christmas and New Year holidays. 


Chris Evert missed this tournament six times in a row at the peak of her career, Martina Navratilova four times; Bjorn Borg never competed in the Australian Open after 1974, and Jimmy Connors after 1975. As a result, the winners of the Australian Open were players who could not claim victory at any other Grand Slam tournament: in the women's singles in 1978, Chris O'Neill won, and in 1979 Barbara Jordan, in the men's singles in 1980 Bryan Teacher excelled. With plans to organize a two-week super tournament in Florida, there was a threat that it could force the Melbourne competition out of the Grand Slam tournament list. 


Therefore, in order to make it easier to attract elite players to the Australian Open, after the tournament in January 1977, the decision was made to reschedule the event to late November and early December. Therefore, in 1977 the championship was held for the second time - in December. This month it continued to be arranged in subsequent years. Starting in 1987, the tournament was again postponed to January, so the championship was not held in 1986.


The Melbourne Park Tennis Complex consists of, among others, 3 center courts and 3 demonstration courts.

11.One of us is ignoring


The main court of the tournament, the Rod Laver Arena, was named after the legendary Australian tennis player Rod Laver in 2000. The court was built in 1988 and can accommodate 15,000 spectators. More than 1.5 million viewers visit it annually. The court is equipped with a retractable roof, which allows you to play matches in the rain or extreme heat.


The second court of the tournament, Hisense Arena, was built in 2000. The arena is special in that it can be easily transformed for various events. In addition to tennis tournaments, cycling and basketball competitions, as well as various concerts, are held here. The capacity of the stands also varies depending on the configuration - 10,500 spectators for tennis and basketball matches, 10,500 or 8,900 for concerts (depending on the location of the stage), 4,500 spectators in velodrome mode. The arena is also equipped with a retractable roof.


The third center court, the Margaret Court Arena, is named after the most successful Australian tennis player in history, Margaret Court, who, among other victories, won the Grand Slam in 1970, won a total of 62 Grand Slam tournaments ( in singles and doubles championships), which is still a record for both men and women; and was the first racket of the world. The court was formerly known as Show Court One and was renamed on January 12, 2003.


All courts have Plexicushion hardcovers. In the early years after the transition from grass turf to artificial courts, Rebound Ace rubberized surface was used. In cool weather, it bounced right, was neither too fast nor too slow and provided good foot grip, but in hot weather the rubber would melt and the courts would become sticky, resulting in severe injuries to Gabriela Sabatini in the 1990 tournament alone. and Mark Woodford.
