This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the U.S. Open, and there will be special recognitions and ceremonies throughout Fan Week and the Main Draw of the tournament to honor the tradition and history of the U.S. Open.

Another exciting aspect of this year’s tournament is the completion of the Strategic Transformation of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, highlighted by the debut of the new Louis Armstrong Stadium.

In addition to the new Armstrong Stadium, which will seat 14,000 and feature a retractable roof, the five-year transformation of the facility included a new Grandstand, new West Stadium and practice courts and a redesigned southern campus.

The main draw of the 2018 US Open will be held Monday, August 27 through Sunday, September 9, with  Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day powered by Net Generation, a full day tennis and music festival for families and children, kicking off the event on Saturday, August 25.
