The tennis news has been very busy this week, with the US Open being held in New York. The first round of matches were played on Tuesday and Wednesday, and the final round of matches will be played on Saturday and Sunday.
The US Open is the oldest tennis tournament in the world, having started in 1881. It is one of the four Grand Slam tournaments that are held every year, along with the Australian Open, French Open, and Wimbledon. The tournament has also been known as the US National Championships since 1922, and was previously known as the U.S. National Indoor Tennis Championship from 1900 to 1922.
The tournament is currently sponsored by Nike, who have been the main sponsor of the tournament since 1998. In addition to their sponsorship, Nike has also provided all of the official apparel for the tournament since 2006.
The tournament has been held at several different locations throughout its history, but has always been held in New York City. The tournament was originally played on clay courts, and the clay courts were replaced by hard courts in 1968.
The tournament is held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, which is located in Flushing Meadows Park in Queens, New York. The USTA Billie Jean King national Tennis Center is the largest tennis center in the United States, and is home to the US Open, as well as the USTA Women’s National Indoor Tournament.
