A friend gave me tickets to see Billy Jean King. What an amazing experience! The stadium has incredible site lines and comfortable seats.

Going to the USTA Tennis Center in Flushing, NY is easy to do and the tennis is high quality. You can go and see the featured matches in Arthur Ashe stadium or Louis Armstrong stadium or check out some high quality matches on the other side courts. So, while the tennis is great, the cost to get in and to... More

I've gone to the US Open with a group of tennis friends for many years. We love the atmosphere there. We go early in the first week so that we get to see most of the players. It's less crowded then too. The players on the side courts are top quality and very close to the fans. Many will stop... More

I grew up in NYC, but never went to the US Open while living there. I went for the 1st time with a few friends and had a wonderful time. We stayed in Midtown Manhattan and took the train to Flushing Meadows every day. Its @ 45 min each way, but easy to get there and awesome people watching on... More

Lots of different ethic food is available, as well as old stand by burgers, fries and pizza. Food is mediocre to good, buy you're here to watch the matches, and not be subjected to "fine dining" ..... Have a beer, relax and enjoy the match.

A great place to experience all different levels of tennis. Amateur, professonal. singles, doubles - worth the expense even if sitting in the nosebleed section if you consider yourself a true fan. Make sure you check out the other matches on the numerous courts & mingle with the rest of the world in between!

If you are nuts about tennis, the US Open is a must! Just being on the grounds is an experience in itself. Walking on the boardwalk, excitement brewing, arriving at the tennis center...it's beyond words. Your bound to run into a celebrity and you will witness history unfolding with some of the high-level tennis you'll undoubtedly see!

great atmosphere, plenty of tennis to watch, even if you don't have a ticket for the main court , you can watch from two large screens the main matches, lots of people , lots of tourists from other parts of the US and abroad. A little bit too commercial at times(like selling the program for the day!) but it's the... More

If you like Tennis, the US Open doesn't fail to impress. Go during the September long weekend and stay a couple days longer is my suggestion. General Admission tickets until the Monday are great, you get to see top 20 and even some top 10 players in action with access to all courts with the exception of Arthur Ashe. Aside... More
