The US Open is the fourth and final Grand Slam tournament of the tennis calendar, and is therefore the final opportunity for players to earn big Grand Slam ranking points before the end of the year.
The event was first held in 1881, and has been held in Queens, New York, at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center since 1978. Its prize fund of $60 million was the biggest of any Grand Slam tournament in 2022.
Matches at the US Open are played on a hard court surface, with the 23,700-seat Arthur Ashe Stadium acting as the main showcourt for the tournament, hosting the finals at the end of the championships.
The next edition of the US Open is scheduled to take place from August 28 to September 10, 2023.
