US Open has been first played already back in 1881 on the grasscourt. The tournament was played also on the clay for three years from 1975 – 1977. Since 1978, it is played on the hardcourt. It is also the last Grand Slam in the calendar since 1987.
The Grand Slam title from the Flushing Meadows is almost a must for every tennis great. Some of the greatest champions include Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, or Novak Djokovic. Courts in New York also saw victories of Billie Jean King, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Steffi Graf or Serena, and Venus Williams.

While the fans witnessed a brilliant run of Bianca Andreescu during the 2019 US Open and Rafael Nadal capturing his 4th title in Flushing Meadows, the 2020 US Open will be much different.
First of all, there will be no fans in the stands, and so the only way to enjoy tennis in September will be via TV screens. Both men’s and women’s fields miss major names like Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Ashleigh Barty, or Simona Halep.
After the long history of the US Open, the edition in 2020 will be a bit different. However, that doesn’t change the importance of this Grand Slam tournament with a very long history. The winners in singles will still get 2000 points to the rankings and $3,000,000 in the prize money.
