Smile Is anybody going to any of the summer hardcourt tournaments this year?

Im going to JPMorgan Chase, Mercedez Benz Classic and the US Open, and i was just wondering if a any of you are going to any of the tournaments also. Or if you have been to some,please let me know how they were so i could consider going to some other tournaments this year not just the summer ones.

Day sessions are about $50, which I guess is expensive but the atmosphere is great and you can get about 10 hours of tennis in.

For the US Open .. the price of the tickets depends on the day and location you are sitting, also depends on the Stadium you are going to ... tickets go from $48 to $800.

GA are $43

this is where the story ends.

If you buy a Day Session ticket for AA stadium you have free access to the ground courts all day, that is normally what I do... but I live in Long Island so I go couple of times during the tounament.


The night session is really great... maybe you should concider buying a ground courts ticket for the day and a night session at AA.

this is where the story ends.

I believe the only court you wouldn't have access to would be Amstrong (but someone can correct me if I'm wrong)..but you can go to all the other ground courts.

Just remember there is day and night sessions at the Ashe.
