U.S. Open General Information:

Since 1987, the U.S. Open has always been the fourth and final Grand Slam of the tennis tournament each year. It’s held annually in late August and early September over a two-week period and the main tournament consists of five different event championships: men’s and women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles, and mixed doubles. There are additional tournaments each year for senior, junior and wheelchair players.

The U.S. Open has final-set tiebreaks, where as the other three Grand Sam tournaments, the deciding set (fifth for men and third for women) continues until it is won by two games. This makes the U.S. Open a little unique and different from the other Grand Slam events throughout the year.

The winners of the singles tournaments (Juan Martin del Potro and Kim Clijsters) took up $1,600,00 each in 2009.
