US Open feiert seinen 50. Jahrestag
August 27-September 9, 2018 -- 2018 feiert das US Open 50 Jahre in der Open Era mit Fertigstellung des Umbaus des USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Centers. Der Umbau kostete $550 Millionen.
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.
