No, Flushing Meadows is the area where the U.S. Tennis Center is located and where the tournament is played. It's not the tournament itself.

Lexxie I suppose it is another illustration of the curious sporting divide between mainland North America and the rest of the world.

I expect, like me, many of those who could name footballers far less famous than Messi and Ronaldo drew a bit of a blank on basketball positions and quarterbacks. Though I did manage to guess Centre from junior school netball!
