US Open (Flushing Meadows, New York)

US Open

US Open Evolves Into Grand Slam Spectacular The US Open bears little resemblance to the tournament started in 1881. It has evolved from an exclusive men's singles and doubles tournament in Newport, R.I., to a two-week sports and entertainment extravaganza held in Flushing, N.Y. More than 700,000 fans enter the gates annually at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
