History

The US Open was founded in 1881. It was first held in Rhode Island, on Newport Casino grounds. In early 1911, the tournament was relocated to New York after efforts made by a group of tennis players. The US Open is the first Grand Slam tournament which started distributing the prize money equally between the men’s and women’s divisions 1973.

This tournament’s tradition of innovation continued throughout the years, in 1975 they were the first major tournament to allow playing at night using floodlights. Fast forward to 2006, the US Open introduced review of referee calls by using instant replay technology, following a number of controversial decisions prior to this event. The US Open was initially played on grass, after the organizers switched to clay, although that change was short lived (1975-1977). 1978 was the year the tournament switched to hard Deco Turf, which remains to this day.

Today

The US Open holds the highest average attendance record out of all the Grand Slam tournaments (713,642). The current prize pool is equally divided among men and women players, and it amounts to $34,252,000 in total. The first place winner in singles gets an outstanding $1,900,000, while doubles and mixed doubles winners get $420,000 and $150,000, respectively.

The US Open is a classy tournament of prestige and professionalism. The top tennis players from around the world gather each in New York to compete at the highest levels for fame and of course, the whopping prize pool. If you are a tennis fan, you can’t miss this tournament.
