Around Oct/Nov last year, Tennis Topia had a great Pre-Thanksgiving Day sale on a lot of great items. So usually there is no need to wait until Black Friday to get the best prices.

This is usually also the time of the year when tennis rackets, clothes and other gear will get marked down in prices with the anticipation of next year's models. Best time for bargain hunters to go shopping for tennis!

Andy Murray: US Open 2012 Champion - Get his Adidas Gear now on sale

Congrats to Andy Murray on winning his first ever Grand Slam - US Open 2012!

What a great 5-set match against the indomitable Novak Djokovic who came back from 2 sets down to level! Congrats Andy!!

What's the Common Formula for Novak and Andy?...both US Open Champions

Rain Update: Men's Monday Final Tickets ~$80, Women's Final ~$50 on TicketExchange NOW!

Check here on Limited Availability and Updated Prices:

$5 Grounds Pass for Men's Monday Finals

You can also get a $5 Grounds Admission Pass to watch the Men's Final at the US Open on the big screens. It can actually be a very exciting crowd outside the stadium. You can actually hear the players' shots echoing, fans cheering on both sides plus usually a better view than sitting at the very top of Ashe.

Tip: Be sure to pick up one of those Amex radios to get the play-by-play audio too. Can't beat $5 bucks!! 

Actually now that I think about it, if you arrive later at night and see some people leaving the match early - you could always ask them nicely for their old ticket.
If Murray wins, it might be cool to go inside just to see Andy hoist his first Grand slam title! Enjoy the Finals!

US Open Weather and Ticket Update:

With severe weather canceling the 2nd men's semi-final and women's final, ticket sales are going crazy! People are trying to get rid of tickets as fast as they can tonight - Sell! Sell!

Here's the new schedule:

Sunday Schedule:
Ferrer-Djokovic 11 am, Azarenka-Serena 4:30 pm.

Monday Schedule:
Men's final on Monday ~5PM

Check here on Limited Availability and Updated Prices:

US Tennis Rain Forecast = Low Ticket Prices

Example: 2012 Hurricane Isaac Rains moving through East coast on Tues/Wed

So it looks like the remnants of Hurricane Isaac is going to be passing through the NYC area this Tuesday and Wednesday! This means a lot of moisture and possibly long extended periods of rain for Tues and into Wed this mid-week after Labor Day!

How to BUY or SELL tickets when there's 50%+ chance of Rain in forecast.
Look for falling ticket prices a day or two ahead of a storm!
People will often panic and sell great seats at well below cost.

For all US Open Series tournaments, there are no roof courts.
Be smart and do not risk holding a "wet ticket". Instead, if it looks like rain just buy a ticket for the following day. isaac-brings-flash-flood-risk

Rained out the whole day? Rescheduled match with 5PM cut-off*

In previous US Opens when there have been long rain delays, matches with late start times can become moved to the next day*.

Also if no matches have started before 5pm, ticket holders usually get to come back the next day.

If this happens two days in a row then you can actually see a big backlog of the Men's and Women's 4th round and QF matches

Therefore, when there is a 60% chance of rain in the forecast especially for the first Tuesday and Wednesday, look for great matches starting Thursday you might want to think ahead!

Remember what I said last year? Seems like deja vu all over again for this US Open 2nd week

Did you know: US Open Rain Trivia

The last 4 straight years (2008-2011), the Men's Final has been rain delayed and played on Monday (NY Times)

This can sometimes be a great opt for NYC fans who are can stick around the US Open the day after to get cheap tickets for Semi's and Finals if they cannot complete the necessary matches to have a Sunday Final.

I was able to get great seats and witness Nadal complete his career grand slam in 2009 because of rain.

Doubles Tennis Handbook

Updated 2020:

FYB (Fuzzy Yellow Balls) is out once again with another helpful video program for Doubles players.
Will Hamilton (FYB) teams up with Martina Navratilova to come up with a course to help average doubles players become better prepared with set plays they can run in case your "Plan A" does not work.

Singles Handbook

The Singles Handbook was one I purchased before and covers basics that most 3.5 players and below should learn in order to advance. The trademark theme is a lot of chalk talk with colored magnets on a whiteboard. There is a lot of explanation good for an auditory-based learner.

Sample Doubles Video for "I" Formation

This video series offers some useful tips for the rec player looking to incorporate the "I" formation into their game in this sample video below. In the past, FYB has also provided useful training videos like the Bryan Bros Playbook.

FYB vs TopCourt

FYB has been around almost 10 years, one of the original online training programs. Now they have added a take-home bound playbook to help illustrate the examples.

For a more modern "Netflix / MasterClass" streaming approach, try TopCourt for 14-days absolutely free.
