Past Men’s Winners and Records – NBC10 Philadelphia

With the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon behind us, we all know what that means – it’s time for the fourth and final Grand Slam of the year: the US Open.

The annual tournament debuted in 1881 for the men and in 1887 for the women, and in 1978 matches began to be played at the one and only USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, New York.

In 1987, the tournament officially became the fourth and final Grand Slam of tennis. And this is where the magic began.

Before the two-week event begins, let’s take a look at some of the men’s US Open winners and records:
