1975 US Open (tennis)
The 1975 US Open was a tennis tournament that took place on the outdoor clay courts at the Forest Hills, Queens in New York, United States. The tournament ran from 27 August until 7 September. It was the 95th staging of the US Open, and the fourth Grand Slam tennis event of 1975. During the final three years at the Forest Hills location, 1975-1977, the US Open was played on a green-colored Har-Tru clay surface, a surface slightly harder and faster than red clay. The switch came after player complaints about the poor state and uneven ball bounce on the grass courts of Forrest Hills.
