Tennis - Men's US Open

The United States Open is the final Grand Slam tournament of the year, held at New York's Flushing Meadows each September. It is preceeded by the Australian Open in Melbourne (January), the French Open in Paris (May-June) and Wimbledon's All England Championships in London (June-July).
The men's singles event was first held in 1881, at Newport, Rhode Island, as a US-only event. From 1884 to 1915 it operated a challenge system wherby the defending champion was guaranteed a place in the following year's final. The end of the challenge system coincided with the first staging of the event in New York, at Forest Hills.
Apart from one year in Philadelphia (1923), the US Open men's singles championship was played at Forest Hills on grass courts until 1975, when a three-year stint on clay began.
In 1978 the tournament moved to the hard courts at Flushing Meadows.
