US Open Tennis Tournament

The top names and seeds in international tennis vie for victory in the final Grand Slam event of the season in New York each year. Singles, doubles, men's and ladies, and mixed doubles, make up the five separate tournaments within the championship. Held annually at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens, the event dates back to 1881 when it was played in the State of Rhode Island as a men's singles event only, and it was not until 1968 that The US Open took the shape and structure that it has today. Those wanting tickets for big games are advised to book as far in advance as possible. For more details check out the official website listed below.
