Second year in a row had great, albeit expensive seats in Ashe. Brought kids who were well-behaved and respectful of the importance of this event. Unfortunately, the fan base even a few rows from the court seems more intent on drinking and talking loudly and profanely during points. One drunken couple canoodling next to us last year started making out... More

The Superbowl/World Series/NBA Finals of Tennis! Beautiful facility with top players on every one of the 17 courts! Never a dull moment! Opening night matches in Arthur Ashe stadium include mini concert and fireworks. We like going at the beginning of the tournament so we can see anyone we want to. No one has been eliminated yet so the choice... More

Awesome experience. A great time with good friends. We were fortunate to see many of the top players. It was my first time at this event and I am looking forward to going back sometime.

If you are even a casual fan, a visit to the US Open is a must. The Qualifying Tournament the week prior is open free of charge. A Grounds Pass is sufficient for the first week as there are plenty of matches and practices during the day - check the schedule. As it is in NYC and is the last... More

If you have any interest in Tennis, I highly recommend visitin the National Tennis Center during US Open, particularly during the first 2 days of the tournament. The general admission tickets are inexpensive and you still have access to all the courts, except Arthur Ashe. The grounds are very well kept, food and drinks everywhere, making it a full of...

Thoroughly enjoyed the tennis but there are a few shortfalls of the complex , stadiums , etc and it appears to need a major overhaul including at least one stadium with a roof please ( we lost...

Nothing like experiencing the US Open in person. Although its quite a ways outside of the city, the subway or the Long Island Railroad have stops, there. You may want to give yourself lots of time to roam the entire area. Once you are court side of one of the major stadiums, you'll see why this is one of the... More

The centre is one the worlds greatest sports arena, without any doubt. Surely one of the best places in the world to watch tennis especially the US Open. Everything is so perfect that one can feel the aura of beauty. I had the honour to be part of the US Open Opening ceremony, watched King Federer and William sisters live... More

One of the best places to watch tennis... and the people show. Lots of courts, lots of action, the food and restos are excellent, and its a stellar stadium for the US Open. Come and enjoy!

The center is perfect, everything you need. The courts are great and the locker room is incredible, really clean and neat and the showers are well maintained. The facility has a gym which you has cardio and weight machines. You can get coffee, water or power aide drinks from vending machines as well as food and snacks. The pro shop... More
