History of the US Open Tennis Championships

This tournament dates back to 1881, when it was held in the men’s singles and was named the US Men’s National Championship in Newport, Rhode Island. Three years later, the competition was moved to New York, and since 1887, the tournaments were also attended by women. Then 17-year-old Philadelphian Ellen Hansell became the winner.

The US Open is the only Grand Slam tournament that has been held every year since its founding.
