When thinking about tennis in the United States, the first thing that comes to ones mind is the US Open.
The US Open is one of the four Grand Slam Tennis Tournaments, where the most renowned tennis players of the world compete for the historic cup.
The first US Open was held in 1968 in West Side Tennis Club en Forest Hills, New York, when the five most important tennis tournaments in the US where played under the same tournament: men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles, and mixed doubles (which are the five modalities played until today).
In 1978 the tournament changed its location to the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center at Flushing Meadows, New York, where it is held annually in August and September. The stadiums that form part of this center have acrylic hard courts with Deco Turf surfaces.
Many famous tennis players prestige the list of the US Open champions such as: Guillermo Vilas, Boris Becker, Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Andy Roddick, Roger Federer, Steffi Graff, Gabriela Sabatini, Arantxa Sánchez Vicario, Martina Hingis, Monica Seles, Venus and Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova among others.
