2011 US Open Tennis Tournament Just Weeks Away
This year's US Open tennis tournament will take place in New York City between August 29th and September 11th. The popular hard court tournament used to be known as the United States Open Tennis Championships. Its roots can be traced back to the US National Championship, which featured men's singles championships as far back as 1881.
The event is now the fourth and the final Grand Slam major of the year. The others are Wimbledon, the French meet, and the Australian event. The tournament is held for two weeks each year during August and September, before and after the nation's Labor Day holiday weekend.
There are five separate championship events in the tournament. These are the women's, and men's singles, the women's and men's doubles competitions and the mixed doubles event. There are also other tournaments involving junior, senior, and wheelchair players. The tournament takes place at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center which is located in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.
One of the unique things about the US event is that it features tie breaks during each set, the last one included. There are tie breaks in all sets except the last one in the other Grand Slam events. Rafael Nadal of Spain won last year's men's singles title with Belgium's Kim Clijsters taking the women's singles crown.
Americans Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan earned the men's double championship while American Vania King and Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan won the women's doubles honors. The mixed doubles title went to Liezel Huber and Bob Bryan of the US.
Video technology is used in the US Open as the instant replay is used to reviews umpire's calls. Each player is allowed to make a total of three challenges each set as well as another during a tie break. If successful, the player is allowed to keep all their existing challenges. If they lose it, then the player loses one of their challenges.
