Grounds passes for tomorrow sold out?

I never expected even grounds passes to be sold out, but it seems they are for tomorrow at the USO.

It's my only day off that isn't rained out and I really need to be there... anyone have any clever ways for me to get a ticket? Or anyone have any spares? Ticketmaster online and phone both say no grounds passes are available.... does anyone who's been to the USO before know if they keep some at the box office? Because I'll go as early as necessary to get in tomorrow.

Re: Grounds passes for tomorrow sold out?

I wonder if its sold out because of people exchanged their tickets. Because usually there are always grounds passes available the first week. Maybe you have to go to the box office to get them though. Not sure.

Or you can try to scalp one on the boardwalk.

Sometimes they will release them the day of. In fact, I think that's usually the way it happens. Tomorrow, they may not since there have been so many delays, Agassi is playing, and a full schedule of stars in addition. Then again, they like to suck up as much money as possible. If they play, tomorrow would be a wonderful day to have a grounds pass.

If you don't mind the possibility of wasting a few hours, give it a shot. But get there REALLY early.

I'll get on the earliest train NJ transit has if necessary. It's my only day off. I'm so incredibly depressed. I really wish Agassi had lost to Baghdatis, I'd have no trouble.

ALL I WANT IS TO SEE NOVAK DJOKOVIC! Like last night online I could still get one but I wasn't sure of the weather, now it seems fairly certain that at least SOME play will occur and I want the ticket and Ticketmaster gives me nothing. And it's ridiculous to pay scalpers over $100 for a grounds pass that costs $46.

If anyone on MTF really loves me and wants to sell Djokovic's biggest fan a grounds pass, let me know.

Re: Grounds passes for tomorrow sold out?

Yeah, I hope there are some passes available. Federer, Safin and Nadal on Armstrong (for live matches that's better than Ashe Stadium)

Re: Grounds passes for tomorrow sold out?

What about tickets to like Armstrong? Are they still on sale? Wouldn't that then get you everywhere else you'd want to go?

Ashe and Armstrong are also all sold out.

I even just harassed a juniors player I talk to who plays tomorrow and he already gave his away.

Granted, I have never been to the USO but I have gotten tics for numerous sporting events/concerts that have been sold out and maybe some could be applicable.

If the scalpers are having trouble selling, they may lower the price if the USO is anything like other sporting events that I have attended. (And for various sporting events, I have bought 3X the price of tickets down to below face value from scalpers.) But sometimes, if it is something you really want to see, it can be worth paying much over marketprice and then scrimping a little later.

You may also be able to try a ticket broker. Granted, you will have to pay over market value, but sometimes they can be not as outrageous as some scalpers.

Do they sell grounds passes on Ebay? (I know they have AA and LA tics for the USO and I got all of my tickets for the 2003 and 2004 TMC finals off of ebay.) Also- does the New York area have craigslist? You could check there.

Good luck.

I like a lot of players.

Re: Grounds passes for tomorrow sold out?

If you're so desperate to go, just pay a scalper. It's better than getting there at 5am and waste 6 hours in lines.

I checked ebay but nothing for tomorrow at a price I'm willing to pay. But thanks.
