US Open Tennis Grand Slam
In 1973 the US Open became the first Grand Slam tournament to award equal prize money to men and women with that year’s singles champions John Newcombe and Margaret Court both receiving $25,000.
Another US Open innovation came in 1975 when floodlights enabled night play for the first time. In 1978 the tournament moved from the West Side Tennis Club, Forest Hills, Queens to the larger USTA National Tennis Centre in Flushing Meadows, Queens, in the process switching the surface from clay, used in the last three years at Forest Hills, to hard courts.
Jimmy Connors is the only individual to have won US Open singles titles on all three surfaces (grass, clay, hard court), while Chris Evert is the only woman to win on two surfaces (clay, hard court).
