Even the worst seat for the final was no less than $150

BTW-- there is no reason to go through ebay, since they seem to be offering the same price as the official ticket sellers, and the official ticket sellers are bonafide genuine and you won't have to worry

Re: Getting tickets for the US Open on site

I never understand why people just want to go for the final.

Its sooo much better going the first week - and yes, its easy to get grounds passes for those days. You see everyone! Playing, practicing.

I always go from the first Monday to the second Monday, and its the best 8 days of my life. Plus I will go the previous week for qualifying, and definitely the Saturday and Sunday before because you see all the guys practicing - great time to get pictures.

No I don't just want to go for the finals.. I have always gone in the early stages but I've never went there for a final before. I live a 20 minutes walk from the stadium... I even go to watch the qualifiers... hey they;re free and there are some good upcoming players there at times... for example murray was there last year...

Re: Getting tickets for the US Open on site

DO NOT wait to buy tickets on site on the first Monday. If you know you are going, buy them and print them online on Sunday night. The ticket line on Monday last summer was over 2 hours long.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

US Open Tickets

So I'm living in NYC for the first time during the US Open so naturally I'm hoping to go for a day. Most likely I would be going to one of the first three days. My question is do I need to buy advance tickets or is it possible to go that morning and get a ground pass?

Re: US Open Tickets

For the first week you'll have no problems just walking up to the ticket window and getting a grounds pass (you'll be able to get into all courts except AA).

Have a great time!

Its the most wonderful time of the year.

Re: US Open Tickets

Also since you live in NYC, you should consider going the first weekend before actual play starts - AA Kids Day (Saturday) and Practice Day (Sunday). They are free, and you'll get to see the guys all practicing. They are actually my favorite days - well, AA Kids Days is a pain until the kids go into AA in the afternoon , but once they are in AA, its wonderful watching the guys practice on the outer courts.

Re: US Open Tickets

You can actually start going on Tuesday the 22nd for free to watch the players practice and to watch qualifying matches.

True.

And with less people (and subsequently headaches ) than on Saturday and Sunday.

I think Thursday and Friday would be the best days. Most of the guys will have arrived and are practicing by then. Plus the qualifying matches too.
