US open website has good desription on how the ticketing works.

http://www.usopen.org/en_US/about/ti...?promo=leftnav

If you buy Day Ashe tickets, it is true you could watch any day matches at any courts. If you buy Ground or Armstrong reserves, you could watch any courts except Arthur Ashe court.

Night tickets are for Arthur Ashe Stadium only. You are allowed to get into the Ashe Stadium after day ticket holders leave the stadium.

grounds passes give you access to pretty much everything but arthur ashe and the boxed/reserved sections of armstrong. everything else is first come, first serve. night sessions in ashe have a fun atmosphere so try make it to one of those. take public transportation. load up on free useless crap if you can. magnets, hats, sharpies, squeeze balls, whatever they have. it may not be great but it makes you feel a tiny bit better about paying $6 for a water bottle. if you can stand it, go see doubles on the small outer courts. you're really close & sometimes they'll hand you a ball if you've been cheering nicely (thanks, mahut). have fun. it's a good time.

Good Advice.

Actually, I could bring in a water bottle (Plastic, no glass allowed) and refill at water foountain. May be go early, door opens at 10:00 am?, and find practice courts. Definitely bring a cap, sun-block for day time. Print and bring a schedule with you so that you could plan ahead for which courts you would like to watch at what time. Have fun.

Don't forget to bring sunscreen. Every year I don't bring it and I get burnt (and I don't burn easily).

When is the best time to buy tickets can you buy tickets when you know who is playing or will they be all sold out by then when it come to getting those day tickets.

Default Re: Who's Going?

I wonder if it´s possible to buy Ashe tickets onsite during the tournament. Also, does anyone know when will American Express cardholders be allowed to buying them?

I intend going to the Open during the 1st 3 days (mon-wed).

Any advise will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, guys!

Ash Tickets for first fews days could be easier to get than later dates. Day-time tickets are sold out faster than night-time. We used to be able to buy tickets same day or the day before. But the last 2 years have been impossible to get tickets through Tix master. But I read that Tix master has been in trouble for bullying concert tickets recently. So I am hoping things would change for better.

I don't know about onsite purchasing. Someone I know did buy the final ticket same day 2008.

If I remember correctly, Amex card holders pre-sale happens first week of June.

Good luck.

Tks, Clever.

Here´s hoping things do change. Being able to buy only upper promenade tkts is a true nightmare for a die-hard fan.

Pretty shocking vision when you´re watching a match on tv and there are lots of empty seats in the lower promenade and courtside seats.

Default Re: Who's Going?

I'm seriously thinking about going this year, for the first 2-3 days.

So how much food can one bring into the site? I was thinking maybe a couple of pre-made sandwiches. Or am I allowed to leave the site and come back on the same day without having to buy the tickets again?

Question Arthur Ashe Stadium: Need Seating Advice

Newbie here!! Hello all...Any New Yawkers here? Would have actually used the search function if I could have found it.. and would have looked through past posts if this wasn't the slowest loading site I've seen in 8 years...( Is this normal??) so I'll just ask....


I am wanting to buy tickets to the US Open Final in Sept at the Arthur Ashe Stadium.. I'll keep my fingers crossed that Federer will be in it..

My question concerns seating... For the members here who have actually been to the Arthur Ashe Stadium.. where are the ideal seats? I was thinking BEHIND the player and up a few rows on one end.. kinda like the view we have on TV.. as tikets are a few hundred dollars each.. I'd like to get my money's worth...

Opinions? Advice? Nekid pics of Maria Sharapova? TIA
