Although it is charming that they have a $350 option for those that don't have money spilling out of their pockets. ;)

I don't think a 'normal' ticket for a single session costs $500.

Those prices are for the single session Courtside VIP seats (which are the only single session tickets not sold out at this point).

The series ticket prices started at $400 for all 15 sessions (including parking). That's $26.66 per session.

The single session tickets started at around $40 or $45, but the price lists were removed from the website after the tickets sold out.

American tennis organization and marketing sometimes makes me ashamed.

40 or 45 for a session is pretty pricey when you consider that you can go to the US Open for 12 hours, watch all the tennis you can fit into that, on a grounds pass that costs about the same. It's not as horrific as the original prices posted, however ;) If Jim can sell out with the tickets that expensive, I can't blame him and his team for selling them at that price. It is a business, afterall ;)

To answer the question, if I lived in Houston and didn't get to go to tennis at any other time during the year, you bet your bottom dollar that I'd cough up 45 bucks to go to a session ;)

The single session tickets started at around $40 or $45, but the price lists were removed from the website after the tickets sold out.
I paid about $225 each for series tickets to the Legg Mason (NOT including parking, which cost $10 each session), and Lleyton was the only top 10 player there (although Andre was still commited to play when I bought the tickets). The box seat tickets for the entire series cost $425. So, I think charging $400 for the entire TMC session isn't bad at all.

I should add that the Legg Mason box seats completely sold out, as did the series tickets that cost $255. Tennis fans in the US are willing to spend this kind of cash.

Did people really think they sold out the event where the cheapest ticket is $350 per session?
