Tennis - Women'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 women's singles started in Philadelphia in 1887 and ran separate to the men's event until 1968, when both titles were contested at the same venue for the first time, initiially 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.
