Roger Federer - arriving soon at the US Open!
Catch him at the US Open on 8/28, 8/30, 9/1, 9/3, 9/5
Important Facts:
  • Federer will be seeded #2 at the US Open
  • Therefore, he gets put in the bottom half of the draw
  • Nadal #1 will be placed in the top half.


Roger's Round 1 match will be on Tuesday 8/28 (Day) or 8/28 (Evening)
Roger's Round 2 match will be on Thursday 8/30 - (Day) or 8/30 (Evening)

The men play matches only every other day. So he will alternate as long as he makes it past each round. Hopefully, he makes it into the Men's Single Finals against Rafael Nadal.

Federer should also be playing on 8/28, 8/30, 9/1, 9/3, 9/5.
Nadal will be playing on 8/27, 8/29, 8/31, 9/2, 9/4.
If both men win, they will also play in the Semi-Finals 9/7 and Finals 9/9 (both on the same days)

Federer almost always plays in Arthur Ashe stadium, he has as far back as I can remember.

US Open Shade Map 2018 for Ashe Stadium

Find Shade at the US Open

I have created a US Open Shade Map to help anyone find a cooler place to watch your tennis match. This one illustrates how the sun will move the shade line inside Arthur Ashe Stadium.

US Open Shade Map
(Ashe Stadium with roof)

How to Find Shade at a Tennis Event

An easy rule of thumb to find shade (or at least a slightly cooler area) is looking for the side with the umpire chair.

The Umpire chair is located on the West Side of any US Open tennis court or stadium. As you can see in the illustration, the shade line will slide slowly toward the East over time.

Buyer's tip: Look for Ashe tickets in Sections 340 to 324; Sections 122-136 (Loge Level)

These will generally be the most shaded areas to purchase tickets inside while the roof is open. Also if you need some relief away from the sun, it may be wise to move further up to the top under the edges of the roof.

July and August Heat Wave
Most of the USA just went through a heat wave! Many cities this summer had heat indexes over 90 or even 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix that with bad ozone conditions (code orange or red) and it's a bad idea to be outdoors for long.

Health Risks of staying in the Sun too long
I often hear the reason most fans avoid attending the US Open is that this heat for a whole day can be very draining. It can even be a danger to your health if you have any elderly fans with heart or lung problems. I highly recommend that fans drink plenty of water, wear sunscreen and stay out of the sun.
