US Open

The US Open is the final grand slam of the season and the stakes are high, with even the best still having something to prove.
Every year in the late summer, the best players in tennis converge in New York City for two thrilling weeks of grunts, groans, and glory. In 2022, the US Open will take place from August 29 – September 11. Spurred on by a crowd that’s one of the best (and loudest) in the sport, the US Open is one of those tournaments that never disappoints. We may not know how things will play out in 2022 but we do know that the tennis will be incredible and so will the host city.


The US Open Tennis Championships is a hardcourt tennis tournament. Since 1987, the US Open has been chronologically the fourth and final Grand Slam tournament of the year. The other three, in chronological order, are the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon. The US Open starts on the last Monday of August and continues for two weeks, with the middle weekend coinciding with the US Labor Day holiday. The tournament is of one of the oldest tennis championships in the world, originally known as the U.S. National Championship, for which men's singles and men's doubles were first played in August 1881.


The tournament consists of five primary championships: men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles, and mixed doubles. The tournament also includes events for senior, junior, and wheelchair players. Since 1978, the tournament has been played on acrylic hardcourts at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, Queens, New York City. The US Open is owned and organized by the United States Tennis Association (USTA), a non-profit organization, and the chairperson of the US Open is Patrick Galbraith. Revenue from ticket sales, sponsorships, and television contracts are used to develop tennis in the United States.


The US Open employs standard tiebreakers (first to 7, win by 2) in every set of a singles match. For the other three Grand Slam events, there are special scoring methods for a match that reaches 6–6 in the last possible set (the third for women and the fifth for men): in the French Open, the decisive set continues until a player takes a two-game lead, in Australia, an extended tiebreaker to 10 points is played, and at Wimbledon, a standard tiebreaker is played only if the game score reaches 12–12. As with the US Open, these events use standard tiebreakers to decide the other sets.

The 2022 edition of the US Open date is confirmed and sealed in case you were wondering when is the US Open. The US Open 2022 date has been marked for mid-June, starting on 11th through to the 18th when legendary players will meet at the course to battle for the top honours at Shinnecock Hills Club. Most prestigious competitions have a heavy purse for the winners, and the US Open is no exception.

For instance, the US Open 2017 edition had a prize money totalling a whooping $12 million! The purse for 2022’s edition is likely to surpass that by a significant margin. While the event promises loads of action for the attendees, the competing golfers anticipate one of the most challenging events ever. Why is this so?
