Those ambitious and revolutionary plans came to fruition – witnessing spectacular – on Tuesday, Aug. 2, with the first public demonstration of the $150 million roof opening and closing over the US Open's primary show court.

The number of people playing tennis in the U.S. and the number of tennis “play occasions” increased in 2015, according to the latest figures released by the Tennis Industry Association (TIA) and U.S. Tennis Association (USTA), which were part of the Physical Activity Council (PAC) Annual Participation Study.
Tennis participation for 2015 was generally stable, showing slight increases overall. Year-end stats for tennis equipment shipments and sales, however, were mixed.
The ninth Annual TIA Tennis Forum will be Monday morning, Aug. 29, at the Grand Hyatt New York City (42nd Street and Lexington Avenue), which is the first day of play at the 2016 US Open.
