Greatest U.S. Open Champions of the Open Era (Women)
The women have been vying for the U.S. Open title since 1887. But the Open Era, when professionals were invited to play for the first time, began in 1968, same as the men.
Eleven women have won the U.S. Open more than once. That’s today’s list.
Kim Clijsters, the defending champion, has taken home the trophy three times. Chris Evert is the all-time leader with six U.S. Open, including a record four in a row.
