What is the US Open?
This is one of the largest yearly tennis tournaments in the world. It is also one of the oldest, having its first championship back in 1881. Back then, it was called the US National Championship and was only for male athletes. The tournament has had many changes and additions over the years and now consists of five primary championships, which include singles and doubles for both men and women, and also a mixed doubles championship.
