US Open - how to get amazing close-up pictures

Getting the Best US Open Experience

Below I've posted some of my best US Open pictures taken personally over the years. I have attended almost a decade worth of Grand Slam tennis in NYC.

Top row - Djokovic, Federer, Wawrinka, Sharapova

Sharing my pictures, hints and experiences with other fans is the main goal of Tennis Bargains this summer. One of these days, I hope you can tell all your jealous tennis buddies that your family got to watch the 2015 US Champion in person, using one of our ticket promo codes!

Also, you will get regular updates when new ticket deals pop up so that you can watch tennis for less than the box office price. We have already helped hundreds of fans this month alone, get a chance to attend the 2015 US Open - want to go too this year?

Front seats with Top players equals WOW pictures...

Just being there is an amazing experience every summer.

Tip #1: Get there early and try Armstrong and Grandstand stadiums *first* to get really close in the first 2 rows across from the umpire or along the center baseline!

Being able to watch your favorite US Open Champion for an hour? That's every tennis fan's dream!

Knowing who will be playing - when and where is half the battle, so you have a chance at witnessing tennis glory in the front rows!

Tip #2: The night before you go to the US Open, always check the "Order of Play" page so you can plan out the next morning. Figure out which players and courts, in the order you want to hop to next. Download the US Open app for updated scores and try to get to the entrance line, before the odd number of games (so that they let you into the stadiums).

Tip #3: Although several popular dates are listed as "sold out" on the US Open webpage...you can still find season ticket holders willing to sell their seats at TicketExchange (*bookmark this page* as these best prices are updated daily)!

2015 US Open Schedule - Important Changes


2015 us open tennis tickets banner

Important Changes to the US Open schedule for 2015

Men's Final is now on Sunday Sept 13. The Men's Semi-Finals are on Friday Sept 11 this year.

Both sessions are said to be "sold out" by the US Open.  However, we found a few seats can still be found on TicketExchange. Women's Final and Men's Doubles Final are on Saturday Sept 12.

Great value US Open tickets for the 1st week

The 1st round matches have been compressed to just 2 days (Monday and Tuesday) of the first week. In the past, they usually included Wed. That means "better matches" earlier in the schedule with more match courts to roam.

For Sept 2-4, Ashe Day Sessions, marked in bold below will typically go for around $40 with the 2-for-1 promo codes. They offer a full lineup of 4 matches per day to watch on virtually every court. **US Open Promo codes will be sent shortly to our Facebook fans who like our posts and US Open email subscribers.

This year will probably feature better seeded matches over Labor Day weekend (Sept 5-7) Sat/Sun/Mon on the top show courts. This includes Ashe, Armstrong and Grandstand plus a few possibly on Court 17. This is a very popular holiday weekend, and we have a pair of tickets to give away for one of our lucky fans / email subscriber. You should also be able to buy a Grounds Pass for these days for about $90.

If rain is in the forecast for the first week, then getting early 2nd week tickets (Sept 8-9) might be also be a great bet. The roof over Ashe is not yet completed; so expect any rained out matches to be pushed to the next day, if there is a total wash out.
