U.S. Open makeover

August 27-September 9, 2018 -- The 2018 U.S. Open celebrates 50 years of tennis in the Open era with the completion of a $550 million transformation of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Centre – including the construction of two new arenas and a retractable roof over Arthur Ashe Stadium

The five-year project, which revamped more than 90 percent of the venue, included the installation of a retractable roof over the main Arthur Ashe Stadium, the construction of a new 14,000-seat Louis Armstrong Stadium (also with a retractable roof), a new Grandstand arena and practice courts, as well as 10 completely rebuilt southern field courts.

In honour of the U.S. Open’s 50th anniversary, the USTA is also introducing a new logo, which is a modernised version of the tournament's iconic flaming ball identity.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
