U.S. Open to celebrate 40th anniversary of the Open Era

On Monday night, August 25, 40 candles will be lit at the U.S. Open to commemorate the 40th year of the Open Era. During the week, vignettes highlighting the era's champions will be shown on a big screen, and the program and drawsheets will contain Open Era features. The U.S. Open website already features a retrospective micro-site. In addition, a special clothing line will go on sale, and The Open Book: Celebrating 40 Years of America's Grand Slam, is already in bookstores.
