The US Open is held every year in late August and early September over a two-week period. Since 1978, the US Open has been held on the acrylic hard courts of the US Tennis Association (USTA) National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, Queens, New York (renamed the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in 2006). The US Open Tennis Champions is divided into five categories: men's singles and doubles, women's singles and doubles, and mixed doubles. The US Open 2021 has been organized recently in New York.
