um... not really. and even the expensive ones are not necessarily nice. Maybe with the economy in the toilet some places will start slashing rates to try to lure visitors

I stayed at the W on Lexington when I went to the USO in 2005. The rooms are tiny. Teeny tiny, but in year's past its been the official ATP hotel so you might run into a lot of players and coaches. It is grossly overpriced, BUT it's in a very good location to hop on the subway to get to and from Flushing every day.

If you want to find other hotels in the area (including some that don't charge $15 per day for a wireless connection) here's trick. Go to google maps and put the address of the W in and bring it up on the map, then do a search for local businesses nearby and search for hotels. That should bring up pages of them. If I remember correctly, there is a Doubletree hotel nearby and that is more reasonable (and I think the wireless is free there).

Good luck.

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

US Open tickets

I am going to the US Open this year for the first time.
I saw a picture of Arthur Ashe Stadium:
http://www.usopen.org/Tickets/~/medi...1620DFB75.ashx
I want to know what are the prices for each level.
1. Is it even possible to buy ticket for the loge? They said on the phone that tourists can only buy tickets for the promenade.
2. If I buy tickets for Arthur Ashe, can I enter Armstrong court and the other courts?
3.Is there a spacial deal for tourists?

Thanks for you help

Re: US Open tickets

Can't believe nobody helps this guy.

I can answer only what I know.

1. You can buy the box but it's f**king expensive though and sometimes it comes in package for all rounds.
2. If you buy Arthur Ashe, you can enter Arthur Ashe + ground courts. If you buy Armstrong, you can enter Armstrong + ground courts.
3. No idea.

Best of luck to Paradorn Srichaphan

Cheapest way/place to buy US Open Tickets?

I've decided to go visit several friends in NYC on the weekend of the US Open and a law school friend of mine decided we should go and try to get ticket to watch either the semi-finals or finals of the US Open.

Given that we're both in our early 20s, we figured its now or never to get to actually watch Roger Federer in person.

This is my first ticket purchase ever at a Tennis tournament and I hope not to dish out $350 for a single ticket. What is the best way to purchase and get good deals?

Semis or final? 350 would be an awesome deal.

Re: Cheapest way/place to buy US Open Tickets?

Why don't you just go to an early round match, that way you're virtually guaranteed to see Fed. There may still be seats for the early rounds night matches. I know there are still tickets for the day sessions in the early rounds. The grounds pass is the best deal, but you don't get to see matches at Arthur Ashe, but you get to sit where you want on Armstrong, Grandstand, etc. and can see top 10 players.
