The US Open starts on the last Monday of August and continues for two weeks. It is the oldest tournament in history which began in August 1881, and it was called the US National championship at its origin. It is the only Grand Slam that was neither affected by the Covid-19 Pandemic in 2020 nor was it canceled during world war I and world war 2.

The US Open was played on a hard court surface called Pro Deco Turf from 1978 to 209. The international tennis federation has classified this multilayer cushioned surface as medium fast. The courts are resurfaced before each August every year. 

The players who have won the most tennis tournaments are Rafal Nadal (22), a Spanish professional tennis player; Novak Djokovich (21), a Serbian professional tennis player; Roger Federer (20), a Swiss professional tennis player; and Pete Sampras (14), an American former world No. 1 tennis player.

By winning this tournament, Alcaraz has become the youngest Grand Slams men’s championship winner since Rafal Nadal at the 2005 French Open and the youngest US open since Pete Sampras in 1990. 

Moreover, he has also made a record of spending the most time on the court in a single Grand Slam event.
