The USTA has revealed the new logo that has been designed to mark the 50th playing of the US Open in New York. The US National Championships became the US Open in 1968 as the event was made open to professional players for the first time.
To mark this milestone, the US Open is set to have many interesting activities at the event. Nicole Kankam, Managing Director of Marketing at the USTA, said, “This year’s US Open is almost a new experience with the Louis Armstrong Stadium completion.
So it will feel like a new venue, a new site, a new experience, and I think the logo will be a great depiction of that.” Katrina Adams, USTA Chairman of the Board and President, said,“This is a true milestone year for the USTA and the US Open.
With the completion of our five-year transformation of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, we are now positioned to celebrate our tremendous history, while being poised for future growth.” ALSO READ David Law: That’s the second best I’ve ever seen Del Potro play
