I will be easy to spot in quallies. I will be the only one watching Viktor Troicki ;)

I'm going but was only able to obtain tickets for 9/2 Sunday night in Arthur Ashe Stadium. I got online early with a friend and between the both of us we could only score Sunday fortnight matches.

We really want to go Saturday 9/1 for Arthur Ashe or Grounds Admissions. Anyone know where I can get tickets for face value? Or is scalping pretty decent outside? Or can I watch outside the stadium?

This will be my first time going to the Billie Jean Tennis Center as well as my 6 other friends coming with me.

Hi Savio,

If you go to the box office the day of or if you can go a day or so before 9/1 you should be able to get AA tixs or grounds passes. I only had a problem last year getting grounds passes for Labor day because of all the rain delays. By the time we got to the box office line....it was sooooo long. & tixs were sold out.
As for scalping.....you take your chances. I have done it a few times & was lucky to meet honest people. & got great tixs . There are always people walking the ticket line buying & selling tickets.

You can watch the matches on the grounds. AA has a big screen right in the plaza & there is also a screen outside of LA that show both show cts...LA & Grandstand. Also a screen in the food ct...towards the back cts.

Have fun & good luck

Here's a question for anyone who has attended the U.S. Open. Are there any cheap places near the National Tennis Center to eat? I am fortunate to be able to go this year, but do not want to pay $12 for a hamburger or $8 for a soda.

Also, is it possible to get away with "upgrading" your seats in Ashe or Armstrong when there's a late afternoon match and most of the spectators in the lower level of the stadium has left?

Thanks for your suggestions.

tennisace
08-15-2007, 06:28 PM
There are probably some in Koreatown but it's a bit of a walk. I certainly wouldn't bother and there is enough variety at the Food COurt that you can get something other then a hamburger for $12. And bottled water is only $5 and better for you.

I usually throw some peanut butter crackers in my bag or breakfast bars and so only get something late in the afternoon like a big salad before the night session crowd comes and it gets really crowded there.

You can bribe an usher in Ashe but it will cost you $50-100 depending on how low you want to go and at least for me the lowest I've ever gotten was right above the upper lux boxes. In Louie there is no need to. Only the first 10 rows or so (I believe) on one side of the court are reserved seats. The rest of the Louie is first come first serve.

No sandwiches, but I brought in meal bars. Seriously, you can leave it's just not worth it there is nothing close by, at all. If you eat well before you leave then you will only need to buy one meal at the USO. Then just eat when you leave at night.

Yes, they do. You can bring a 12" x 12" x 16" or smaller bag. If you bring one bigger you can take everything out and put it into one of their clear plastic bags and carry it around with you, and pick up your own bag when you leave. That's what I remember from past years.

man, these terror threats really drive that country nuts. jeez!

plus all it does is helping the tournament to generate more money from the "scared" customers, who even understand the tournament organizers. what a perfect little environment to sell hamburgers for indeed 12 bucks or stuff like that.

so weird, it all adds up for some and the rest doesn't even care about being ripped off apparently.

Because of last year's rain, we got tickets this year, but we won't be able to go.
So could someone buy them off me?
I'd be very greatful.
I'll sell them cheaper than the price, but you'll pay the shipping.

They are:
Session 3
Tuesday, August 28, 2007
Day tickets
Section 319, Row W, Seats 1-5

They go for 50-60$ US on Ticketmaster.com
So, depending on how much shipping is, I'll adjust the price since you're doing this me favor.

I've never dealt with online transactions before, though...

Anyone interested? :awww:

For venezuela that food is freaking expensive.. Here we pay umm lets see, for a Big Mc Donalds Big Mac 4-5$!! (With big fries and soda)

So yeah food in 8 or 10$ its expensive, although we payed for them in the Orlando theme parks last year, im sure we will pay them in those parks this year again, but not in the us open.. were carriying our food! =)

what I always do is go to grand central station before heading off the the open, I buy a huge sandwich there for 3 or 4 times less than a single hamburger on the grounds of flushing meadows, eat the sandwich, and am not hungry for the rest of the day. It always has worked out perfectly!

Hey!


You have any extras for Saturday and Sunday DAY sessions? I'm looking for tickets for 6 people but these ticket brokers are selling them for an arm and a leg. Let me know if you know of anyone who is selling the days sessions during labor day weekend.

So far I only have tickets for Sunday evening sessions.


Anyone, let me know! This will be my first time to the US Open...

Thanks for the info Feds.

When you say watch the matches on the grounds via screens, do I have to have tickets such as Grounds pass/LA/AA passes?

Hi Savio,

sorry for the delay in responding....i totally have been zonked w/ work .

Anyway...yes you do need tickets to gain entry to the grounds to watch the big screens...grounds passes work fine. They allow you access to every court except AA.

LA has reserved seating , as someone said. but only the first 10 or so rows surrounding the court. But all the other seating is open & is first come first served basis. Same deal w/ Grandstand . But the reserved seating is a smaller section & you can get front row seats in GS but they go quickly & fans tend camp out all day in those seats. But its small & intimate & all the other seats have a good view.

As for food outside the grounds...pretty far away. Only suggestion from me is either to bring some food w/ you...I always do & never been stopped . There is also a hotdog stand outside in the park. (it is outside the main gates) I always go there for a cheap dog. He has hotdogs, pretzles, chips, soda, water, ice cream ....all very affordable. All you need to do is get your hand stamped for re-entry & you can go out there.
There are many restaurants in Flushing but that is a hike...not sure I would do it since I don't like to miss any tennis. My thing is ...if I plan to stay all day, is to eat a big breakfast, bring some lunch & snacks & cough up some $$ for some dinner. Not all the food is bad. Friends that go to IW every year say the food at the USO is the best they have seen & they go to many tourneys. It is way way overpriced, but what can u do.

I will be at the qualies all week. weather permitting. I usually stay near LA & GS..thats where all the big boys practise. But they are on the other practise cts too.

It would be nice to meet some of you . I will be cheering for that Swiss guy.....I think Roger is his name. ;) ;)

Hope I helped. Really looking forward to the USO!!!

bye & GO ROGER!!!

HI,

I know there is an upgrade window right past the main entrance to the grounds, right outside the Grandstand. I never did this but my mates have for certain matches.

IMO, Louis Armstrong & Grandstand are the best show cts to watch the matches with just a grounds pass. If you are alone, you can usually find an empty seat fairly close to the ct without having to pay for the reserved seats. I like to sit at the very top of LA on the Grandstand side & watch both cts at the same time. There is even a terrace overlooking GS that has great viewing.

i hope this helps.

Enjoy the Open

Well yes, when compared to McDonalds. I don't know I don't eat burgers. But I got a nice sized portion of pasta last year for like $8 and I don't expect to pay less than $8 for a bowl of pasta anywhere :shrug: so maybe it's just me, but I don't think it's too bad.

I've been thinking about getting grounds passes for a few days, depends on when/if I can get my condo week switched to anywhere within an hours drive of there. The one and only time I've been was 1995, so I'm sure some security things have changed, but I took in a bottle of water and refilled it at bathroom sinks or water fountains, took in sandwiches and snacks, and had no problem. It helped that I was staying with my aunt then and just took the subway, but she doesn't live there anymore.

Well, I don't think I can go now, we're having scheduling problems at work. I could get grounds passes the first day or so if I can get off, but it's doubtful at this point. Of course, Labor Day weekend is already sold out, so that's a bust, but I knew it would be. I'd rather go the first few days anyway.
Edit: I just looked at my calendar for work and my only coworker has penned in that she is off next week on Monday and Tuesday and Friday, so no US Open for me this year. We're already arguing about her last minute scheduling changes, it really ticks me off.

There are no passes available on ticketmaster for Saturday (Sept. 1st) but they say they have a limited number that will be sold that day. How feasible is it to get a pass on the middle Saturday on site and how early should I be there to make sure I get one?

Thanks :)

I thought about doing the very same thing you were doing but did not want to get caught up with the crowd as well as being left out. I went on Ebay and bought them from a person who had 100% feedback. I paid 100 bucks per ticket. It was a hefty price but being from out of town, I just wanted in.

It's all about risk.

Scenario: I have tickets for the evening matches for Arthur Ashe Stadium. Am I allowed to enter Louis Armstrong stadium and watch matches there as well? Can I go back and forth or are there special tickets that allow this bouncing around?

I know last year I had tickets for the Quarterfinals in Arthur Ashe but don't think I could go to the other court other than the outside courts?

Reason I bring this up: Jankovic was complaining as people were entering the stadium presumable from the other courts?

Thanks in advance.

I was at the Open this time last year. If you have tickets to Ashe, you can go to ANY court you wish for that session. But I don't think they play night matches at Armstrong/Grandstand during the second week.

Yup. Armstrong has reserved seating behind the two ends for people with Ashe tickets. People with grounds passes can sit on the sides.
You should have seen it during the Djokovic-Stepanek match. Complete clusterf..k. The ushers just couldn't get control of the thing.

Not exactly, the reserved seating in Armstrong are for those who purchased Armstrong tickets. If you have Ashe tickets then you have to sit in general seating along with everyone else.

In 6 days from know this 'Dude from Belgium' will be making his first visit to the city that never sleaps, New York! I'm really looking forward to it. I really don't know what to expect, but I've heard from a lot of people it is really impressive! Now my question! I arrive in NY on Friday September 7 at 5 pm local time. Could I still by tickets for the day-session or evening-session of Sept 8 or the eveningsession of Sept 9. Does anyone of you guys have any experience with this kind of situation? The US Open-website isn't that clear. Would I have to buy it on the 'black market' or are there still official instances where I can buy tickets? And how much would they cost? Or is it hopeless to purchase tickets the day of the matches and will I be obliged to watch the matches on TV?
I would be really greatfull if anyone of you could answer these questions! Also, if anyone has any tips for me for events that are really worth it in the period Sept 7 - Sept 23, feel free to tell them to me! Any other tips or suggestions are always welcome, here or in a personal message.
Thank you all in advance!
Greetings,
CarloBelgium

I don't know, but I know someone who got tickets on eBay when Ticketmaster didn't work.
