I recently went here for the 2014 US Open at Arthur Ashe Stadium. The tennis center was great. It was easy to get here via the #7 train. Citi field is right across the way so it was cool to see that up close too. There was plenty of food selections and plenty of shopping. They also had other experiences... More

I have been coming to see matches for years, but if you are in NYC the week before the official start of the tournament, you NEED to come to the FREE qualifying rounds and Sunday Practice Day (no fee for admission). The grounds are amazing (improved) and fan friendly, and you are free to roam around and watch in on... More

As a tennis fan, this is one of the hotspots of tennis. Been here for the 2013 US Open. You can get there by subway, otherwise the spot is a bit difficult to reach. The Tennis center is great, with a lot of courts and facilities. Only problem is that it's pretty expensive. My personal tip, if you want to... More

Great venue for the national Event. I like it best for the early rounds when you can wander around and see the less crowded matches and get close to the players. This place has morphed from a small little place in Forest hills west side tennis to this spot. They have a wide variety of eating spots but all are... More

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!
