Tennis in the Big Apple
The US Open, formerly the United States Open Tennis Tournament, is the final of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments in the calendar following the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon. The US Open is held between the last week of August and the first week of September, enjoying the balmy end of the American summertime. It is unique in tennis terms in that the US Open allows tie-breaks in the fifth set, making for some extremely exciting finales to games. The US Open is held at the iconic Flushing-Meadows Park in Queens, New York, and is played on hard-courts.
The US Open is known as one of the most competitive tournaments of the Grand Slam season, and often throws up some magnificent matches with real giant-killings as unseeded players take the big names right to the wire. Also, coming so late in the ATP season, injuries and fatigue have taken their toll. The big names remain in the hunt for the US Open at this stage, but whether all with be fit and ready throughout the tournament, which in 2013 runs from the opening day on 26th August until the US Open Final on 9th September 2013, remains to be seen.
