How to save money on US Open Tennis Tickets

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 of collecting an autograph or collectible souvenir.

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

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) again offers free access to qualifiers and pro practices.


Cheaper to Wait or Buy tickets now?

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 and for promenade seating near the upper rows of Ashe.

It is our advice to have travel plans set before getting tickets. 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.

Sign up for our emails to get all our fan tips. You will be notified when special promo offers are announced. The Amex Centurion suite and Chase RSVP lounge also become available for online reservations during the Summer.


"Buy in July" - Summer Ticket Discounts usually trend after June

In past years, we have purchased 2-for-1 ticket deals and seen prices as low as $20. Sponsors such as Mercedes Benz, SPG, Amex, 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.


The American hard court season with the US Open Series tennis events across the USA begins in July. It leads up to the big finish in NYC with the US Open in August. Attending any of these events across America (July and August) will give a sneak preview locally to fans 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's an honor to dust the same clay off my shoes as Alcaraz, 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.

At the French Open in Paris, we can see and hear once again the packed Parisian crowd. So far, so good when it comes to public safety and health even weeks later when all these sporting events conclude. This is by far the most encouraging sign that major sporting events can come back fully this year in a post-vax environment.


Beyond the "Next Gen" hype, we now have the "Next One": Alcaraz.


The time of Alcaraz has arrived. Not since Nadal was a teenage phenom have we witnessed this level of athleticism.

This kid Carlos Alcaraz has all the superhuman dimensions needed to bend and blur. With sheer speed and physicality, many top tennis commentators agree this 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 with inevitable clashes between the graduating class and the GOATs

There is no one moment to signal Spring's end and Summer's arrival, yet everyone can agree it feels warmer. Every tennis generation has its moments.

Similar to the Sampras/Federer transition at Wimbledon; the emotional Agassi retirement shared by Nadal on the wings of Ashe - it is the overlap of generations that is like 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?

Unless you need tickets for the popular Labor Day Saturday - our advice generally is to do your research.
