US Open Past Winners, Biggest Upsets, & History

The United States Open is a tennis tournament and a modern version of the oldest tennis championship, the US national championship, first played in 1881 for both men’s singles and doubles. The tournament was held on grass courts at Newport Casino in Newport, Rhode Island. In 1881, only club members of the United States National Lawn Tennis Association (USNLTA) were allowed to play the tournament.  Since 1987, it is considered as fourth and final Grand Slam tournament of the year. Other Grand Slam tournaments include the French Open, Australian Open, and Wimbledon.

The men’s doubles were played in 1888 and 1889 at the Staten Island Cricket Club in Livingston, Staten Island, New York. In 1892, the Men’s Mixed Doubles championship was introduced, and the women’s doubles championship was introduced in 1899.

When it is played?

US Open is played on the last Monday of August every year and continues for two weeks. The tournament has five championships; men’s and women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles, and mixed. The tournament also includes senior, junior, or wheelchair players in the event.

Top 5 Biggest US Open Upsets

Manolo Orantes defeated Jimmy Connors in 1975

In 1975, Manolo Orantes defeated no.1 seed, Jimmy Connors, in the finals of the US Open. Orantes played very well and did not give Connors a chance to make a rhythm in the game. And finally, Orantes defeated Connors. It's amazing how the technology in racquets has changed since then.


Jaime Yzaga defeated Pete Sampras in 1994

Pete Sampras was a defending champion and about to defend his title in 1994 when he met with Jaime Yzaga. Sampras was not feeling well as he was suffering complications with a calcium deposit. Therefore, he was not in form, and on the other hand, Yzaga played amazingly well.

Peter Korda defeated Pete Sampras in 1997

Peter Sampras entered in US Open as no.1 seed in 1997. He was fully confident of winning the match or at least reaching the final. In the fourth round, Sampras played against 15th seed Peter Korda. Peter Korda performed well and defeated Sampras.

Julie Coin defeated Ana Ivanovic in 2008

Julie Coin of France had never played in a Grand Slam before and ranked 188. On the other hand, Ana Ivanovic was the winner of the French Open in 2008, and people expected her to win the US Open. But she lost to Julie Coin in the second round.

Alexander Volkov defeated Stefan Edberg in 1990

In 1990, Stefan Edberg entered in US Open as no.1 seed and faced off Alexander Volkov, ranked no.52. Volkov never expected to win the match as he was going to play against the no.1 seed. But Volkov defeated Edberg by 6-3, 7-6, and 6-2.
