US Open Tennis, Ticket Deals for Summer in August

The Start of Summer and the US Open Tennis Series

Our great American summer tradition - between BBQs and fireworks. Professional sports means enjoying a fun day together and cheering on our favorite players. Nothing beats sharing some food with all your friends and a chance to collect an autograph or collectible souvenir.

Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, the pools open, school is out, and your adventure awaits!

Cheaper to Wait? When to buy US Open tickets?

Note the initial offer prices and look for special sale promotions between July and early August. More seats become available during the summer. Deals are usually for mid-week at the promenade seating level near the upper rows of Ashe.

It is our advice to have travel plans set before getting tickets. Having plane and hotel tickets ready helps me narrow down my dates. Next, decide how many day or evening sessions you plan to attend. I prefer two Ashe day sessions for max value so you'll see most of the players.

"Buy in July vs Rush in August" - Summer Ticket discount trends

In past years, we have purchased 2-for-1 ticket deals and seen prices as low as $30. Sponsors such as Emirates, Amex, JP Morgan, and IBM often have discounted ticket codes. We share the sponsor deals on our email list!

We are neither paid nor sponsored by the US Open, and our opinions are completely our own. These limited-seat deals become available and are very useful if you just want to roam the grounds. More people will start selling tickets by mid-August, making it a buyer's market.

The US Open Series features tennis events held across the USA (July - August)
It signals the beginning of the US Hard Court tennis season. Everything leads up to the big finish in NYC with the US Open in August. Attending any of these events across America will give fans a sneak preview locally for anyone who can't make it to the Big Apple.

I share my personal travel experiences on the ATP and WTA tennis tour at JCtennis. Feel free to check it out if you want inspiration or a sample guide for planning your own post-vaccination tennis vacation.

Full Stadiums, more positive signals from Sports Fans in Europe

Being a photographer on the court and at their press conference, my opinion is from an insider perspective at actual pro tennis events. I watch the conditions and players on the ATP and WTA tours daily. It was an honor to dust the same clay off my shoes as Nadal and Djokovic.

Witnessing the energy and passion of the full Spanish crowd at Madrid’s stadium is the most amazing way to feel connected with a sea of cheering fans full of energy, waving their red and yellow. 

Feel the spirit of Tennis Fandom in person
Like a Champions League soccer match, the entire crowd erupts together in a wave of humanity. Tennis fans enjoyed the clash between Nadal and Alcaraz with stars from Real Madrid soccer players and even the King of Spain himself in attendance.

We heard the packed Parisian crowd again at the French Open in Paris. So far, so good. Regarding public safety and health, we look back a few weeks after these sporting events conclude.

This is the most encouraging sign that major sporting events can return fully this year in a post-vax environment.

Beyond the "Next Gen" hype - we have the "Next One" Alcaraz.

The Age of Alcaraz has arrived. Not since Nadal have we seen a teenage phenom with this level of athleticism.

This kid "Carlitos" Alcaraz has all the superhuman dimensions needed to bend and blur. With sheer speed and physicality, many top tennis commentators agree that he is the total tennis package. Our future in tennis, trained by former #1 JC Ferrero, he is the real deal.

This is an especially exciting year in tennis when generations collide in the passing of the tennis torch! Or will the big 3 legends hold the throne one more time?

Seasons change. So we wait for the inevitable clashes between our graduating class and the 3 GOATs

There is no one moment to signal Spring's end and Summer's arrival. Yet the air feels warmer. Every tennis generation has these transitions.

Similar to the Sampras/Federer transition at Wimbledon, Nadal shared the emotional Agassi retirement with Nadal, who was standing on the side inside Ashe. This period is the overlap of generations that brings the changing of the seasons. 

Question on everyone's mind:
Is this the summer of Alcaraz, or will we see the GOAT race go deeper in 2022?

US tennis fans: the classic tennis tradition is the American major at our home US Open.
For the first time since 2019, Fan Week (8/23-28) offers free access to qualifiers and pro practices. We will be covering and providing a sneak preview of the experience with our media coverage.
