When the U.S. Lawn Tennis Association was founded in May of 1881, its members agreed to hold a national championship tournament at the Newport, Rhode Island Casino in August. Twenty-six players entered the men’s singles tournament. Richard Sears won without losing a set, while Clarence Clark and W. F. Taylor teamed to win the first doubles title. Sears went on to win the next six singles championships and was also a member of the winning doubles team in each of the next six years. Today, the US Open remains an event revered for its history and respected for its drama; thousands tune-in worldwide to watch their favorite players in pursuit of the American Championship.
