Past Women’s Winners and Records – NBC10 Philadelphia

After a season of hard-fought competition, the US Open is back, and the hardcores are ready to dust it off.

The annual tennis showdown will take place over two weeks, starting on Monday, August 29 and ending on Sunday, September 11, and will feature a host of tennis superstars including Ons Jaber, Emma Radukanu and Coco Gauff.
