The U.S. Open was formerly known as the US National tennis championships which started in 1881 in Newport Rhode Island. The venue then moved to Philadelphia and finally to New York. The U.S. Open began in 1968 with the onset of the 'Open Era' in tennis and included all five events - Men's Singles, Men's Doubles, Women's Singles, Women's Doubles and Mixed Doubles. U.S. Open was originally played on grass courts, then it moved to clay and finally on deco turf (hard court) where it remains till now. Interestingly, the most no. of wins in the men's event are tied among Richard Sears, Bill Larned and Bill Tilden. However, in the open era, Pete Sampras and Jimmy Connors are tied at 5 wins. In women, Molla Bjurstedt Mallory comes first with 8 titles whereas Chris Evert holds the record of most wins in open era with 6 titles.
