We went for our first time to the US Open and it was an amazing experience. Venue is impeccably clean, very easy to get too and the staff were very helpful.

Really fits with the whole vibe of the early fall. The US Open really is a unique event, I recommend trying to fit it in if your in NYC at the time. Really a great experience, and if you get the grounds pass you can get up close and personal with the players which is really cool! Definitely try to... More

Watched five sessions in 2014 US Open. It was an amazing experience. Definitely plan to visit if you are a tennis fan. Few tips 1. There are three types of tickets in Arthur Ash Stadium. Top row seats are not bad, you can follow the match. Staff was helpful. 2. If you want to watch a specific match, try tickets... More

My sister brought me to NYC for my 40th birthday weekend. We came 2 days and we were glad we did. What a beautiful place! We are definitely planning a return trip. Next time looking to get reserved seats at Louis Armstrong as it held a lot of the big matches. Serena was at Asche but the big named men... More

My first US Open, and it will not be my last. Grounds are beautiful/well-kept. However, several of the workers were not familiar with the venues and had to consult maps when I asked to be directed to certain venues. All who work at the US Open should be familiar with the grounds and able to more quickly help attendees. More... More

This was a fun experience! Saw some great matches and had a lot of fun! We also walked to the HUGE fountain with the big globe! Pretty cool! Lots to do and eat when the games aren't so exciting! It's in our country! You gotta try it!

Whether you are a tennis fan or just an occasional observer, the US Open is an event not to be missed. As another reviewer said, it is something you "should plan to go to ....at least once in their lifetime." The complex is amazing! Perhaps it's the history of the NY Worlds Fair and what remains to this day for... More

The National Tennis Center is located on the former grounds of the 1965 NY Worlds Fair (I happen to have attended it as a 9 year old child), the complex is impressive, as its two iconic venues, Louis Armstrong and Arthur Ashe stadium are impressive venues. The US OPEN Tennis tournament is one of those events that qualify for anyone's... More

Every tennis watcher should plan to go to the US Open at least once in their lifetime. The seating in all the courts are good, even Arthur Ashe stadium. I was afraid that I would barely be able to make out the play sitting high up, not a problem at all, if you have good vision or wear glasses. If... More

I have been going to the US Open for years and I have to say that every year, it's a new experience. Some years the people who work there are friendly and helpful; some years they could spit in your eye. Considering most fans are paying a decent price to attend, a little consideration for the fan experience shouldn't be... More
