The US Open Tennis is a hard court tennis tournament, as opposed to the Wimbledon tournament which is traditionally held on grass. The US Open is the fourth and final tennis major comprising the Grand Slam each year; the other three are the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon.
The US Open is held annually, usually during late August or early September and spans over a two-week period. The main tournament consists of five event championships: men’s and women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles, and mixed doubles. There are also additional tournaments for senior, junior, and wheelchair players. Since its inception, the US Open has been held on acrylic hard courts at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, Queens, New York City. The United States Tennis Association (USTA), a not-for-profit organization, owns and runs the US Open. Proceeds garnered from ticket sales are used for the promotion and development of tennis in the United States.
