In late August, Flushing, Queens, becomes the center of the tennis universe (pipe down, Wimbledon) when it hosts the 132-year-old U.S. Open, the final Grand Slam event of the year. As many as 37,000 spectators a day file into Arthur Ashe Stadium for the serves, sets, grunts and—if we’re very lucky—an on-court hissy fit from a world-class athlete. This year’s women’s final takes place on September 8, followed by the men’s final on September 9. Prepare for the action by brushing up on U.S. Open trivia.
