When is the US Open Tennis 2017

First of all, let's talk about what is the US Open Tennis?

It is a global tennis competition that is held annually in the United States. It is the modern version of US National Championship. It is a hardcourt tennis tournament.

In this article, you will get to know about When is the US Open Tennis 2017, its history, championships, dates and tickets information.

History of US Open Tennis (Formerly US National Championship)

In 1881, US National Championship was first contested for men's singles. That was a long time ago right!

From 1987, this championship is converted to US Open tennis, and from then onwards it is known like that among the people of the world. Now let's divide the history of  this grand slam event into three of it's main phases:

1881 to 1914: Newport Casino

This all started in 1881 on grass courts of Newport Casino at Newport, Rhode Island. Then, only the peoples who were the member of United States National Lawn Tennis Association (USNLTA) are allowed to enter this championship. 

Richard Sears won the first season and kept on winning consecutively seven times. There were several modifications and addition to the championship in this period of times since it was just the beginning of the new era!

1915 to 1977: West Side Tennis Club

In 1915, several players demanded the change of location (around 100 players). They signed a petition to move and change the location based on the evidence that most of the tennis club, as well as the players, were from or near to the NYC (New York City). And also suggested that it will be beneficial for the future of this championship.

This issue was brought to vote, and they won by 128 in favor and 119 against the change of location.

1978 - Now: USTA National Tennis Center

In 1978 the venue was again moved to USTA National Tennis Center, Flushing Meadows, Queens around 3 miles away from the current location. Also, the court surface was changed from clay to hard courts.

  1. men's and women's singles
  2. men's and women's doubles, and mixed doubles
