US Tennis Open Fun Facts:

Arthur Ashe Stadium 2010
At Arthur Ashe Stadium, the outer court is
green while the inner court is blue to make
it easier to see the ball on television.

• The US Open can trace its origins back to 1881 when the United States Lawn Tennis Association held it's first championship tournament in Newport, Rhode Island.

• As the tournament grew in popularity (and since most players and fans were located there, anyway) the games were moved New York City at the West Side Tennis Club in Queens in 1924.

• The US Open officially became one of four "Grand Slam" international tennis championships -- joining the Australian Open, Wimbledon, and the French Open -- in 1968. Today, Arthur Ashe Stadium is named for American tennis great Arthur Ashe who won the first tournament that year.

• In1973, the US Open distinguished itself as the first Grand Slam tournament to award equal prize money to men and women. 

• Record holders for most US Open men's titles include Jimmy Connors, Pete Sampras, and Roger Federer with five wins each. The most US Open women's titles are held by Chris Evert and Serena Williams with six wins each.
