US Open Tennis Predictions & Tips


US Open Tennis


The United States Open Tennis Championships, or US Open, is a hard court tennis tournament and the final Grand Slam of the season. One of the oldest tennis tournaments in the world, the US Open began in 1881 as the US National Championship. 

The US Open is held annually between August and September. Since 1978 the tournament has been played on at the Flushing Meadows–Corona Park in Queens, New York City. 

The US Open is the only Grand Slam that uses tiebreakers to decide every set of a match. In the other Grand Slams, if a match goes to the last set the match continues until one player wins by two games. 

The most successful players in the men’s tournament are Richard Sears, Bill Larned and Bill Tilden who won seven US Open men’s titles in the amateur era. In the professional open era since 1968 the most successful players include Jimmy Connors, Pete Sampras and Roger Federer who have each won five US Opens. 

The most successful players in the women’s tournament are Molla Bjurstedt Mallory who won eight titles in the amateur era, Chris Evert and Serena Williams winning six titles each in the open era.

Rafael Nadal is the defending men’s champions having beaten Kevin Anderson in straight sets in the 2017 final. Sloane Stephens is the reigning women’s champion after defeating Madison Keys in straight sets in the 2017 final.
