Grounds of US Open

The Arthur Ashe stadiumThe DecoTurf surface at the US Open is a fast surface, having slightly less friction and producing a lower bounce compared to other hard courts (most notably the Rebound Ace surface formerly used at the Australian Open). For this reason, many serve-and-volley players have found success at the US Open.The main court is located at the 24,000-seat Arthur Ashe Stadium, named after Arthur Ashe, the African American tennis player who won the men's final of the inaugural US Open in 1968. (In that same year, British player Virginia Wade won the first women's US Open final.) The next largest court is Louis Armstrong Stadium, which was the main stadium until the completion of Arthur Ashe stadium. The third largest court is the Grandstand Stadium, which is attached to the Louis Armstrong Stadium. Sidecourts 4, 7, and 11 each have a seating capacity of over 1,000
