US Open – The History

The US Open is an annual tennis tournament that dates back all the way to 1881 giving it over 135 years of history. The US Open is one of four grand slam tennis titles played over the course of a year, going alongside the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the French Open.
The tournament is organized by the UTSA and is currently held on outdoor hard courts at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows – Corona Park, New York City, United States. The last edition of the US Open was able to generate a prize money purse of 46.3 Million dollars, with the winner of the men’s and women’s singles titles taking down 3.5 Million dollars each.

The US Open is played during a two-week period from late August to September, and is chronologically the last of the four Grand Slam tournaments of the tennis season since 1987. The tournament kicks off on the last Monday in August, and lasts for two weeks into September, with the middle weekend always coinciding with the Labor Day holiday.
The main tournament consists of five separate event championships: men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s doubles, and mixed doubles. Additional tournaments for senior, junior and wheelchair players are also held at the US Open.

Past Venues

The USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center hasn’t always been the home of the US Open; the tournament was first held in Newport from 1881–1914 and then was moved to Forest Hills from 1915–1920, and then 1924–1977, and had a brief stint in Philadelphia from 1921–1923 until finally finding it’s home at Billie Jean King Tennis Center in New York.

Newport Casino

As the original venue of the US Open, the Newport Casino has a rich history with the event. The courts used in the first few US Opens were grass courts, which are much different to the acrylic hard courts which are used currently at the US Open.
The first US Open was won by Richard Sears who went on to win the titles 7 years in a row which is still the record for the most number of consecutive wins of the US Open.
From 1884 to 1911 the tournament used what is known as a challenge system whereby the defending champion automatically qualifies for the next year’s final, where he plays the winner of the all-comers tournament.

In the first few years of the US Open was named the United States National Championship and only men were allowed to compete at the tournament. Six years after the men’s national championships first held the first official U.S. Women’s National Singles Championship was held at the Philadelphia Cricket Club in 1887. The women’s championship also used the challenge system.

In 1915 it was decided that the US Open will be moved to the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills, New York after a 100 players petitioned in favor of a move. After much debate the USNLTA, the body in charge, took a vote which passed in favor of moving the venue of the tournament.

West Side Tennis Club

The US Open was played at the West Side Tennis Club from 1915 to 1977 except for a brief stint at the Germantown Cricket Club in Philadelphia. The move to Philadelphia was made due to renovations that took place in order to house 14,000 in the West Side Tennis Club.
The tournament continued to use the challenge system until 1968, when the open system was adopted. The adoption of the Open system merged all 5 events together, bringing women’s tennis and men’s tennis to the same tournament for the first time. In the first Open era US Open, 96 men and 63 women entered the event, and prize money totaled $100,000.
In 1973 the US Open became the first tournament to have equal prize money distributed to both the winner of the men’s singles competition and the women’s singles competition. John Newcombe and Margaret Court both received $25,000 that year for winning the Open.

Current Venue

USTA National Tennis Center

In 1978 the tournament moved from the West Side Tennis Club to the much larger USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows which was only three miles away. As a result, the tournament switched the court surface from clay, which was used in the last three years at Forest Hills, to hard courts which have been used ever since. Jimmy Connors became the only individual to have won US Open men’s singles titles on all three surfaces (grass, clay, hard court).

From 1984 through 2015, the U.S. Open created a concept known as “Super Saturday”, in which the Women’s singles final is held on Saturday, in between the two Men’s singles semi-finals. The men’s final is scheduled to be played the next day, on Sunday. While this strategy was based in trying to boost TV audiences it became tough on players who only got one day’s rest between the semifinals and finals. Since this introduction the tournament has managed to find an extra rest day, due to bad weather where the men’s final has either been rescheduled for Monday or the semi final rescheduled for Friday.

The main court at the USTA National Tennis Center is the 22,547-seat Arthur Ashe Stadium, which opened in 1997. The stadium is named after Arthur Ashe, who was the winner of the inaugural men’s final at the US Open in 1968.

The next largest court at the USTA National Tennis Center is the Louis Armstrong Stadium, which was opened back in 1978 as an extreme renovation of the Singer Bowl Stadium. The Louis Armstrong Stadium was the main stadium from 1978 to 1996 for the US Open.
The third largest court is the 6,000 seater ‘Grandstand,’ which was created by the leftover excess seating when the Louis Armstrong Stadium was built from the Singer Bowl.
In 2011 another court, Court 17, was opened as a fourth show court, with a large television screen and the electronic line calling feature which allowed for players to challenge the umpire’s calls. Court 17 initially held 2,500 with temporary stands, but now allows over 3000 people.

Court Type

The court surface changed twice, from the grass of 1881–1974, to clay 1975–1977, and then to hard courts which have been used since 1978.

The current court type for the US Open is made of Decoturf. A decoturf court is constructed with layers of acrylic, rubber, silica, and other materials which are assembled on top of an asphalt or concrete base. This type of surface has slightly less friction which produces a lower bounce than other types of hard courts. For this reason serve and volley players have found a great amount of success at the US Open since the change in 1978.

Recent Attendance

The attendance at the US Open has been phenomenal in the past few years with most courts selling out their seats especially at the tail end of the tournament. The highest attendance for the tournament came in at 721,059 in 2009 but has been hitting the 700,000 mark consistently in all the years following.

It is expected that the US Open 2017 will produce similar numbers and perhaps even surpass the mark set in 2009.

Changes in the Game Over The Years

The men’s singles rules have undergone many changes since the original rules were adopted way back in 1881. From 1884 to 1911, the event used what is known as a knockout phase, where a winner of an All-Comers tournament faced off against the defending champion. The challenge round system was abolished with starting with the 1912 edition of the US National Men’s title.

All matches but the All-Comers final and the challenge Finals were played as the best-of-three sets during the first five years of the tournament from 1881-1886, until the event switched to best-of-five set matches. Until 1884, the winner of the next game at 5-5 took the set in every match except the All-Comers final and the challenge Finals, but changed to win by 2.

The tie-break system was introduced to the US Open in 1970 for all sets and all matches. It started off as a best-of-nine sudden death version until 1974, and then switched to what is used now, a first to 7 win by two points method. The US Open is the only grand slam to have a fifth set tie-break to decide the match, all other slams require a win by 2 games in the final set of a match.

In the year of 2006, the US Open introduced instant replay reviews of calls, using the Hawk-Eye computer system. With the instant replay reviews, each player is given three challenges per set plus an additional challenge during any tiebreak. The player keeps all existing challenges if the challenge is successful, however loses a challenge if unsuccessful.
Once a challenge is made, the official review is shown to the players in the form of a 3D model of the shot in question.

Much like the men’s game, the women’s game has undergone many changes over its long history at the US Open. Like in the men’s game 1888 through 1911 the event was played with a knockout concept where the All-Comers singles winner faced off against the defending champion in a challenge finals. Since the inception of the Women’s US National Championship in 1887 all matches have been played as the best-of-three sets, except between 1894 and 1901 where the challenge final and all-comers final were both 5-set fixtures.

US Open Prize Money

The prize money has increased over the years from a few thousand dollars to being with to now millions just for the winner of the singles events. The US Open has made a five-year agreement to increase the total prize money to about $50,000,000 by 2017. Which will pay out the winners of the singles tournaments for men’s and women’s over 4 million dollars each. The winners of the doubles and mixed doubles events receive significantly less money that the singles competition.

The prize money for men’s and women’s singles prize is equal at the US Open.
The following is the payout structure for the 2016 US Open, the numbers will increase for the US Open 2017:

Men’s Singles

L Pouille90/1

J-W Tsonga40/1
S Wawrinka18/1
G Dimitrov66/1

As expected the US Open odds to win the tournament are favored greatly towards Novak Djokovic with 11/10. Andy Murray is also an extremely strong contender with 6/4 odds. These two players are most likely to meet in the Finals as the No 1. and No 2. seeds respectively.

Possible upsets may occur from players such as S Wawrinka, G Monfils of, JM Del Porto who have all been in good form leading up to the tournament.

The 2017 tournament will likely feature a healthy Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. This year Federer did not enter the US Open tournament and Nadal entered the tournament not feeling 100%. By next year, with good rehabilitation these two players could play a big part in how the brackets for men’s single turn out. Expect both players to make it at least to the quarterfinals where they will likely face off against Murray or Djokovic.

Expect similar US Open odds in the 2017 tournament, however with some key players coming back from injuries the odds may grow for players such as Murray and Djokovic to win it all next year. Also expect some of the young players such as Milos Raonic to grow in stature and cause possible upsets in future US Opens, with his massive serve.

The US Open odds are greatly in favor of Serena Williams to take the US Open 2017 title. At only 5/6 odds she is clearly miles ahead of all her competitors with the next biggest favorite coming in at 3/1, A Kerber.

The women’s draw has been much harder to predict over the past few years with the only consistent player being Serena Williams. There is always the chance that her sister Venus will come out victorious with her proficiency on the hard courts of the US Open.

Greatest Rivalries

Over the years the US Open has been home to many of the game’s greatest rivalries. Tears have been shed and rivals have been conquered with many epic matches that will go down in the history books are some of the greatest in sports. The following are some of the most memorable and highly contested rivalries in the US Open history.

Sampras-Agassi

The Sampras vs. Agassi feud is one like no other in the history of sports. The two players were both at their prime when they faced off against each other in multiple US Opens. It was Pete Sampras how go the final laugh with three wins over Agassi in US Open Finals. The duo’s duels have been well documented in other Grand Slams as well, but hit fever pitch when competing in the US Open.

Sampras, regarded by most as the greatest player to have ever played, was a serve and volley expert who was perfectly suited for the low bouncing hard court surfaces. Agassi on the other hand loved to play on the baseline and is considered by many experts as the greatest returner of serves that ever played.

With both players executing to their strength this rivalry was a crowd favorite, especially with Agassi making press statements, calling out Sampras. The boisterous Agassi, known for being a bad boy of tennis, had the tendency to fan the flame with Sampras, which only added to the spice when the two met in Grand Slams.

Of the four times they met in the US Open, three times they met in the finals, in 1990, 1995, and 2002, but strangely their quarterfinal match in 2001 might have been the best of them all. Sampras was on the back end of his career and had fallen to the number 10 position in the world whereas Agassi was still in top form.
All four sets went to a tiebreaker, Agassi captured the first one, but the dominant serving Sampras won the final three to give him the win. This victory marked the end of a great rivalry and showed that Sampras had Agassi’s number despite not being in the best playing form.

Federer-Djokovic

These two players need no introduction– both have been named among the greatest players that ever lived. The two have dueled in every Grand Slam and the US Open in no exception. The elegant Federer vs. the dominant Djokovic draws in a crowd that only the two names put together are capable of.

Djokovic is currently at the top of the tennis world but this wasn’t always the case. Federer was long considered the best and for a long time no one stood in his way. It wasn’t until the likes of Djokovic and Nadal came along to contest the world number one that tennis became interesting to watch again. From a sea of Federer wins, it seemed possible that there were now challengers in the mix.

Djokovic and Federer first met in the US Open in 2007, where they matched up in the finals. The top-ranked Federer prevailed over the Serbian in straight sets without much of a fight. Federer went on to top Djokovic in the 2008 and 2009 semifinals, asserting his dominance over the youngster.

It was 2010 when the turnaround happened. In 2010, Djokovic was able to defeat Federer for the first time at the US Open. He then translated that into another victory over the great Swede in the 2011 US Open. It was that meeting 5 years ago at the 2011 US Open that took this rivalry to the next level.

In 2011, Djokovic had finally put an end to the Federer-Nadal era of dominance and established himself as the best player in the game with a monstrous 70–6 record in the 2011 season. When the US Open came along, Federer had been the only player to have taken a match off of Djokovic in a Grand Slam.

The match started off great for Federer, winning the first two sets handily and transferring all the pressure onto Djokovic. It was from there that Djokovic made one of the greatest comebacks in US Open History.

Djokovic came back to win the third and fourth sets quite easily, forcing a fifth and final set. Federer however, was in no mood to lose and quickly found himself up 5-3 in the final set and chance to win the match with two match points. Djokovic staved off elimination by winning the next two points and then Djokovic completed the break to send the score to 5-4. He would go on to win the final four games over a stunned Federer and take the match. Djokovic would eventually beat Nadal in the finals to win his first US Open title.

Serena-Venus

The Williams sisters dominated the sport of tennis in the 2000’s and continue to be among the best players in the world. As the sisters are such great players they from time to time end up meeting at Grand Slam finals, the US Open in particular has been a stomping grounds for the two. Although siblings this rivalry is nothing short of spectacular when they step onto the courts in New York.

The two sisters have 8 US Opens between them since 199 which is equal to the rest of the women’s field combined. Their first meeting in at the US Open Finals was in 2001 where a then 21-year-old Venus beat her 19-year-old sister in straight sets. By the time the 2002 US Open came by the next year, Serena had improved her game greatly and had just come off a victory in both the French Open and at Wimbledon. In the 2002 US Open Finals, Serena got her revenge as she beat her sister in straight sets to win her first US Open.

The two met once again in 2005, in a 4th round matchup, that resulted in a Venus win. It wasn’t until 3 years later that Serena was again able to pull the series back to a tie when she beat Venus in the Quarterfinals on the way to winning the US Open title yet again. This match was probably their most fiercely contested with Venus actually winning more points that Serena in the match, but Serena won the points that mattered to take her past her sister.

These two American sisters will forever be one of the greatest rivalries to take place on US soil.

Most US Open Men’s Singles Championships

The record for the most US Open men’s titles is a three way tie between Roger Federer, Pete Sampras and Jimmy Connors who each won the title 5 times.

Roger Federer – 2004–2008
Pete Sampras – 1990, 1993, 1995–1996, 2002
Jimmy Connors – 1974, 1976, 1978, 1982–1983

Roger Federer holds the record for most consecutive titles with 5 in a row from 2004 to 2008.

Legendary Champions:

Pete Sampras

Pete Sampras make a strong case for the greatest player ever. The former world number 1 is a 5 time winner of the US Open and is considered one of the most dominant hard court players of all-time. As one of the best exponents of the serve and volley, Sampras was able to use the faster hard court surfaces to his advantage by not letting the ball hit the ground. With 14 Grand Slams in total, Sampras was able to break the record for the most number of Grand Slams until his record was broken by Roger Federer.

Sampras had many iconic matches in the US Open with some of the top players at the time. His rivalry with Andre Agassi and his battles with the great Michael Chang were some of the most entertaining and hard fought matches in the history of the US Open.

Sampras has an overall record of 5-3 at US Open finals, with losses coming against Stefan Edberg in 1992, Marat Safin in 2000, and Lleyton Hewitt in 2001. Sampras was able to finish at the US Open on a high note in 2002, when he beat Andre Agassi in the Finals. It was his last US Open Finals and one with which he tied the record for the most US Open titles in the open era.

Many experts consider Pete Sampras to be the greatest hard court player to ever live, and thus the greatest US Open Champion of the open era. With that signature serve and ability to volley like no other player of his generation, there isn’t much argument.

Richard Sears

Richard Sears played all the way back in the 1880’s and is considered one of the best players in the challenge era. Sears went undefeated at the US Open, winning the title 7 consecutive years. Do to the structure of the tournament back then Sears only had to play the Finals of each tournament after he won the first one.

Sears won his first US Open titles in 1881 while he was still a student at Harvard at the age of 19 years old. During his first three years Sears didn’t even drop a set on his route to winning the US Open, showing his class over the field. He was able to put together an 18 match winning streak, which was the record until topped by Bill Tilden 30 years later. Richard Sears was inducted into the Tennis Hall of Fame in 1955, giving recognition to a great career.
Richard Sears holds the record for the most US Open Championships and the most consecutive championships with 7. He will always be remembered as the undefeatable US player, who was miles ahead of the competition.

Roger Federer

Roger Federer needs no introduction. He is widely considered the greatest player that has ever played the game and will forever be one of the most breathtaking talents in any sport. His record breaking 17 Grand Slam titles, makes him also the most decorated tennis player of all time. Federer was able to capture the US Open 5 times in the Open era, which he did in consecutive years, which are record on both accounts.

Roger Federer’s overall record in US Open Finals is 5-2, after losses to Juan del Potro in 2009 and a recent loss to Novak Djokovic in 2015. Federer is a legend in almost all of the Grand Slam titles barring the French Open which he has only managed to take down once. His run from 2004-2008 at the US Open is one of the great achievements by any player in the Open era and will be an almost impossible record to take away from him for future players.

Federer is in the twilight of his career at the moment but is still considered one of the top contenders for the US Open title. Although not playing in the tournament in 2016 due to an injury, Federer should be primed and ready come the US Open 2017. If he is back to full strength there is no telling if Federer will be able to add to his already amazing legacy at the US Open.

Chris Evert is considered by many to be the most dominant women’s tennis player of any era. She was awarded the Philippe Chatrier award and inducted into the Hall of Fame for her illustrious career. She was also a recipient of the Sports Illustrated ‘Sportswoman of the Year’ award in 1976.

Chris Evert’s overall record in US Open Finals is 6-3, with two losses coming to the great Martina Navratilova. The legacy of Evert is safe with her performances at the US Open, it will be a tough order for any future women’s players to top her records and dominate the US Open tournament in a similar fashion to that of Evert.

Serena Williams

Another legend who hasn’t even retired yet, Serena Williams is perhaps the greatest women’s tennis player of them all. The US Open has been her home stomping ground ever since she was 17, when she won her first finals against Monica Seles. Since then she has been able to add the US Open title five more times to her resume to become the joint record holder for the most US Open titles in the Open era with Chris Evert.

Williams is a favorite to add to her collection of US Open trophies and become the sole record holder for most US Open titles won. Her incredible serve and amazing speed allow her to take advantage of the faster paced hard court surfaces found at the US Open.
Her record in US Open Finals is 6-2 with her only losses coming from her sister Venus in 2002 and the Austrian Samantha Stosur in 2011.

Expect Williams to break the US Open record and build a legacy that will be hard to top. When Serena does decide to hand up her racquet, she will probably already have the position of greatest female player who played the game.

Billie Jean King

Billie Jean King is another absolute legend of the tennis world. As a former world number one and winner of 12 Grand Slam singles titles she has easily found herself in the Tennis Hall of Fame.

King was able to capture the US Open title four times in the years of 1967, 1971, 1972, and 1974. She had a fierce rivalry with other American great Martina Navratilova, which resulted in many heated battles in the Finals of the US Open. They did however join together to become one of the most dominant women’s double duos in US Open history.

Billie Jean King has an overall record of 4-1 and US Open finals only losing the once to Great Britain Virginia Wade in the inaugural Open Era tournament in 1968. Billie Jean King is such a huge part of the US Open that the current stadium that the US Open is played at in Flushing Meadows, New York is named the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. This signifies her great contribution to the US Open and tennis in general. The stadium’s name was changed on August 28, 2006.

The men’s double game has been especially competitive in the past 15 years with doubles specialists such as the Bryan Brothers and Leander Paes of India starting to emerge in the doubles scene. The ability of these players to play a team oriented tennis game has allowed them to capture the US Open titles many times and show the world that doubles tennis requires skills different to the singles game in order to be successful at the highest level.

US Open Doubles Legends

The Bryan Brothers

The Bryan brothers have long been the team to beat in the US Open men’s doubles competition. The Bryan Brothers are identical twin brothers Robert Charles “Bob” Bryan and Michael Carl “Mike” Bryan and are considered the most successful duo of all time. They have held the world number ranking for doubles for almost 500 weeks.

The Bryan Brothers have been able to win the US Open men’s doubles championship 5 times: in 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014. This is the record for US Open men’s double championships in the Open era.

The two brothers are known for the amazing communication and teamwork between them, almost playing as if they have the same mind. The tennis skills of the two brothers are also top notch, with both of them having brief stints in both singles and mixed doubles competitions.

The brothers are still playing and will surely be among the favorites for the US Open 2017. While the two brothers may not get the same recognition as the greats of the singles game, there is no doubt that the talent and greatness they posses in the doubles game will give them a position in the Tennis Hall of Fame one day.

Leander Paes

Leander Paes is an Indian tennis pro that has won a number of men’s double and mixed double titles in almost every grand slam. Three time winner of the US Open, in 2006, 2009 and 2013, Paes is considered to be one of the top doubles players of all time due to the fact he has won his titles with a number of different partners.

Paes won his latest US Open title in 2013 with Radek Štěpánek of the Czech Republic, and won his 2009 Us Open title with another Czech player, Lukáš Dlouhý. Paes’s first title in 2006 was won with yet another Czech partner, Martin Damm. His ability to win with multiple partners proved he was the required element in a winning doubles team.
Paes is known for his big serve and ability to play a team oriented form of doubles. His knowledge of the game is immense, over the 25 years he’s been a pro, which helps his partners grasp the doubles game.

Paes is still playing and should be considered one of the favorites for the upcoming 2017 tournament despite being 43 years of age. Regardless to which partner he shows up to the tournament with, Paes will definitely be shooting for the trophy.

The women’s doubles game has evolved over the years into an extremely competitive form of tennis. Many of the elite singles players have found themselves taking part in the US Open women’s double tournament, with many of them going on to win it. Recently in 2015, Women’s tennis legend Martina Hingis teamed up with the Indian Sania Mirza to win the US Open Title. Although Hingis has not played competitively in the singles circuit in some years, she was able to change her game up and cater it more towards the doubles game. The Williams sisters have also had a great deal of success when entering the US Open doubles draw, with a win in 2009.

Expect more top female pros to enter the doubles bracket in the future, especially at the tail end of their careers.

US Open Doubles Legends

Martina Navratilova

Martina Navratilova has won more Grand slam titles than any other player in the history of tennis. After an incredibly successful singles career, Martina decided to focus on the doubles and mixed doubles game. She was able to win a whopping 9 US Open women’s double titles in 1977, 1978, 1980, 1983, 1984, 1986, 1987, 1989 and 1990. Her domination of the doubles circuit was no surprise considering what a talented player she was during her tenure in singles.

Martina played with a number of partners throughout her doubles career. Most notable of her partners was other women’s tennis legend Billie Jean King whose name the US Open stadium is named after. The two made a dream team for any tennis enthusiasts as they dominated opponents in the 1980’s. Martina went on to play with and win the US Open women’s double title with Pam Shriver, Gigi Fernández, and Betty Stöve, cementing her place as the best women’s double player of all time.

Due to the longevity of her career, Martina was able to become the most winningest player in tennis and was voted Tennis magazine’s greatest female tennis player for the years 1965 through 2005.

Martina is now a coach, after recently retiring. She finished with 56 Grand slam titles in total, a record that is likely to not be soon eclipsed.

Louise Brough & Margaret Osborne DuPont

Louise Brough & Margaret Osborne DuPont are legendary women’s double partners who were considered to be unbeatable in their tenure on top of the US Open women’s double circuit.

Longtime friends Margaret Osborne DuPont and Brough decided to team up together to compete in their first US open at the 1942 US Championships. The successful pair won another eight consecutive doubles titles at Forest Hills until 1950 which went down as the longest championship run in history in any event at any Grand Slam tournament!

Brough and duPont took a small break from the US Championships in the years of 1951 – 1952 but in 1953, they returned to extend their record match winning streak to 41. At the end of it all, their career record as a team at the US Championships was an astounding 58–2, being able to capture the titles 12 of the 14 times they entered the tournament and losing only five sets in those 14 years.

These two women have not entered the Tennis Hall of Fame and will forever be remembered as the most dominant women’s doubles duo in the history of the US Open, if not all tournaments.
