When you come to the US Open, you have arrived at an exhibition unlike any other in the world. For two weeks, the US Open showcases word-class athletes, electrifying action, and riveting storylines on the grandest of scales and the game's biggest stage.
The US Open bears little resemblance to the tournament started 134 years ago. Originally an exclusive men's singles and doubles tournament in 1881, it is now a sports and entertainment extravaganza, where more than 700,000 fans enter the gates annually at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, Queens. The US Open is the only Grand Slam tournament, which includes the Australian Open, French Open, and Wimbledon, that has been played every year since its commencement.
