US Open - getting amazing seats, a fun experience and the best 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 personally attended over a decade worth of Grand Slam tennis. Been to NYC dozens of times in my life, as well as had the insider's view at all the other Tennis' Majors: Wimbledon, French Open, and Aussie Open as a tennis fan, coach, photographer, and journalist.

PRO TIP: In August every year, I always find great seats for even SOLD OUT session tickets here.

From past experience, I prefer buying only 
verified "Instant Access" tickets from the Official Tickets for the US OpenGenerally, the better seats go fast, so the sooner you look the better. Just be patient and check back every few days to snag them fast!

Just being there is an amazing experience every summer. As part of the tennis credentialed media, we are very lucky to get great access to the photo pits. But you as a fan can also get even closer if you know where to go!

Tip #1: Get there early and run to Armstrong or the Grandstand stadiums *first* To get really close, try to sit in the first 2 rows across from the umpire's side or along the center baseline

You can even use cheaper Grounds Pass Tickets for these stadiums during the 1st week of the tournament.

Tip #2:
The night before you go to the US Open, always check the Schedule / "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 to see when matches are about to start or end. Plus try time it so that you can get to the stadium entrance line, before the odd-numbered games (so that they let you into the stadiums). Otherwise, you need to wait for another changeover.

Tip #3:
Find tickets to several popular dates, even when "sold out" on the US Open can still find season ticket holders willing to sell verified seats at TicketExchange so you don't get scammed by scalpers (*bookmark this listing page* as these best prices are bought/sold/updated daily)!
