Named after the legendary musician who grew up not far from where the annual US Open tennis tournament takes place, Louis Armstrong Stadium proudly stands on the site of the prestigious USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Previously used as the main court, it was designated to the No. 2 slot after Arthur Ashe Stadium was constructed, but still plays host to many marquee matches during US Open tennis action each year.
