The U.S. Open will use blue instead of green tennis courts this year in an attempt to make balls easier to see for players and TV viewers. The area outside the court's lines will stay green, U.S. Tennis Association spokesman Chris Widmaier said Monday. Blue courts also will be used for the 10 tournaments in the US Open Series, the summer hard-court circuit leading up to the season's final Grand Slam.
