Introduction
byname  U.S. Open 

      international tennis tournament, one of four major annual events in tennis (with the Australian Open, the French Open, and the Wimbledon Championships).

 The U.S. Open championships, established in 1881 as a national men's singles and doubles contest, were organized by the U.S. National Lawn Tennis Association (USLTA; now the U.S. Tennis Association) and held in Newport, R.I. Women's singles competition was first played in 1887 (officially added in 1889), women's doubles in 1890, and mixed doubles in 1892. Venues for the men's and women's championships were different until 1942; from 1978 all of the U.S. Open championships were played on the hard courts of the USTA's National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, N.Y. The U.S. tournament—like the other major, or “Grand Slam,” tennis championships—was opened to professional players as well as to amateurs in 1968.
