Wondering when the US Open 2012 Tennis Tournament schedule starts? I was looking for the first day of the 2012 US Open tennis tournament start date online and had trouble finding it!
So like the Olympics, I figured if I was wondering, someone else might be too!
The US Open 2012 tennis schedule begins on Monday, August 27 and runs through September 9.
Technically, qualifying play has already begun at Flushing Meadows, but Official First Round tennis matches don’t begin until this Monday, August 27, 2012.
I have mixed feelings about the US Open because it’s one of my favorite tennis tournaments (the crowds, the city, the night matches, it’s in the USA!), but I’m also sad because it marks the end of the Grand Slam competition season until the Australian Open begins January 14-27, 2013.
I also have never been to the US Open.
Well, that’s a lie. I was finally able to go on Labor Day in 2000 when I was in NYC for a friend’s wedding, but it literally rained the entire day! I didn’t even get to see one ball bounce! So I just hung out on the grounds all day and soaked up as much history as I could!
For those of you that don’t know, I’ve played tennis almost my entire life, including as a college student at Emory University:
and as a G.O. for Club Med where I just recently returned to test my skills!
Even if your’e not a tennis player, do you like to watch the US Open?
