History

The tournament has taken on multiple formats over the years, but its earliest roots trace all the way back to the late 1800s. In 1881, the series of matchups was referred to as the U.S. Open National Championship and was held at the Newport Casino in Rhode Island. At that time, the tournament took on a very different structure in which the defending champion was entitled to an automatic berth in the final matchup the following year, which paved the way for several dynasties. Since then, nearly everything has changed about the tournament, save for the fact that it brings together the most highly-skilled players in the sport. The event didn’t begin its tenure in New York until multiple petitions were brought against the governing body to move it to a cultural hotspot in 1915.

Award structure

The tournament is one of the crowning events of the world tennis circuit, and has a prize purse to match, with the total payout for all players averaging more than $30 million. In 2014, the prize purse increased 11.7 percent, bringing that year’s total payout to $38.3 million. Dave Haggerty, United States Tennis Association President has made it a goal for the prizes awarded to total $50 million by 2017. With new partners and corporate sponsors being added to the U.S. Open’s roster every year, it’s safe to assume that Haggerty and the USTA should be able to make this happen in that timeframe. The added financing should bring with it additional fanfare and a more tantalizing roster of athletes.

Traditions

The U.S. Open is absolutely steeped in tradition. Notably, the tournament was the first world major to play matches at night. This is still adhered to today, creating a unique and unforgettable experience for fans and players alike. Night tickets are sold separately from day tickets, so ensure that you note this when ordering tickets or planning your trip. In the past, the Open has also hosted a kids’ day before the weekend begins to benefit local charities, as well as celebrity tennis matches.
