The US Open is one of the most famous and greatest sports and entertainment events in the world where you can see some of the biggest tennis stars battle for the championship in New York City. It is held annually, between August and September, over a two week period.
The tournament is played on a hard court and is one of the four major Grand Slam tennis tournaments, the other three are the Australian Open, played on a hard court, the French Open played on a clay court, and Wimbledon played on grass.
Formally called the United States Open Tennis Championships it is the modern iteration of one of the oldest tennis championships in the world, the U.S. National Championship, which for men's singles was first contested in 1881.
Since 1987, the US Open has been chronologically the fourth and final tennis major comprising the Grand Slam each year; first in the year is the Australian Open, then the French Open, next is Wimbledon and finally the US Open.
The main tournament consists of five different event championships: men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles, and mixed doubles, with additional tournaments for senior, junior, and wheelchair players. Since 1978, the tournament has been played on acrylic hard courts at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens, New York City.
The US Open is unique in that there are final-set tiebreaks; in the other three Grand Slam tournaments, the deciding set (fifth for men, third for women) continues until it is won by two games.
