Owner description: Once known as the U.S. National Championships, the US Open originated as a single men’s tournament held solely for entertainment purposes back in 1881. Not long after, women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles and mixed doubles also became a part of the growing annual tradition.

“U S Open Tennis”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

The US Open Tennis at USTA National Tennis Center was a excellent place to see my favorite tennis players up close. You can go to any of the courts except Aruther Ash on a ground pass and sit anywhere. On some of the side courts I was in the front row and able to see the action as close as you can get to a match, plus I was seeing the best tennis players in the world. If you want to see good tennis up close that is the place to go.

“A day to remember”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

What a fantastic day at Flushing Meadow. We were lucky enough to see a pro-am match before the main events. Great facilities, great seats, great tennis. If you enjoy going to Wimbledon give this a try!

“So fun!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

The employees of this tennis center are very nice and my friends and I shared several conversations with staff interested in where we were from and if we had attended the event in the past. Unfortunately, when there was an emergency, inclement weather (i.e. tornadoes) at the US Open, the communications were all over the map. For as many radios as there are in the center, one might think the staff would be better informed. As my friends and I rushed from door to door in the pouring rain and several employees telling us that we couldn't stay in any particular spot for security reasons, the same staff had no idea that the stadium was being evacuated due to tornadoes. Additionally, each staff member directed us to a different location. It was quite confusing. A structured plan should be put in place for future events such as these and communicated to everyone to keep the attendees safe.

“LOVE this place.....even took the kids this time”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Went to the US Open twice this year. First week, had tickets in top section (300s) in Arthur Ashe. Not so good, as they do not control foot traffic up there. and you are forever peering around some guy with a burger and a beer to try to catch some tennis. Second week, got general admission tickets with the kids. Arrived early (10.15ish), got seats two rows from the front in the Grandstand, and just camped out there. Saw great doubles, kids got autographs. All good. This is the way to do it!
