US Open Winners

US Open is the fourth and the final tennis grand slam tournament in tennis season. It is held annually around the end of August, one week before and one week after the Labor Day weekend. So, before we list all US Open Winners, let we check how everything has started.

Short history

The tournament is the modern version of one of the oldest tennis championships in the world, the U.S. National Championship. The first official tournament was held in August 1881 in Newport on the Rhode Island and the only clubs who were members of USNLTA-e (United States National Lawn Tennis Association) could participate.
In the beginning, only men participated in US Open tournament and 6 years after the first one started the first female competition.

In 1991 group of tennis players guided by Karl H. Behr tried to move the venue of the tournament in New York but they were overvoted so the venue od the tournament stayed Newport. In 1915 almost 100 players signed a petition to move the tournament in New York explaining that more participants are from NY and near places. The pressure for change was very strong so the decision to relocate the tournament in Ne York was made in February 1915.

Though regarded unofficially by many as a major championship beforehand, the tournament was officially designated as one of the major tournaments by the ILTF commencing in 1924.

The open era began in 1968 when all five events were merged into the US Open, held at the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills.

A short history of the playground

The main stadium of the tournament is Arthur Ashe stadium who can receive 22,547 spectators, which opened in 1997. The name was given is Arthur Ashe, a renowned Afro-American tennis player who became the first player who wins the US Open in the open era in 1968.

The second-largest stadium of the tournament is Louis Armstrong, officially opened in 1978. In the period from 1978 to 1996, it was the main stadium of the tournament. At one point, the stadium could receive 18,000 spectators, but this capacity was reduced to 10,200 after the upper stands were removed and after Arthur Ashe Stadium was opened.

The third-largest terrain is the Grandstand with a capacity of 6,000 seats.
In 2011, the seventeenth in a row opened with large television screens and an electronic line that allowed players to challenge judging decisions. Being on the ground, the terrain is called The Pit. Today, the terrain can accommodate up to 3,000 spectators and is located in the southeastern part of the building on which the entire US Open is played. [17] Territories 4, 7 and 11 have a capacity of over a thousand places.

All the playground of the US Open tournament is lighted to allow television coverage of the entire tournament and to get highest rating as possible.

In 2005, a special blue play was on all courts of the US Open, in order to monitor the ball through the game easily; the outer court remained green.

On the 2006 tournament, the complex was named USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in honor of former tennis player Billie Jean King, who won the tournament four times.
