The U.S. Open Women's Single's Final has sold out before the Men's

You know why: Serena Williams.

First time in U.S. Open history - http://espn.go.com/tennis/usopen15/s...ells-men-first

Lots of firsts for Serena at the USO: she won her first major here in 1999, the Venus/Serena match in 2001 was the first time a women's final was shown in prime time in the U.S., and today Nike launched the "Greatness Collection" in honor of Serena, the biggest tennis collection ever launched by Nike (3 pairs of sneakers, 2 dresses, and 2 bomber jackets).

It's going to be awesome if she wins this.

Isn't the USO crowd supposed to be against their home favourite Serena?

They all bought tickets to cheer for her opponent in the final and against Serena. You will see half the stadium empty by the time Serena gets her 1st matchpoint.

I hope ESPN will get Claudia live interviewing every American in the stadium why they are rooting for the other player should she be a non-American.

I'm excited, this is good for the women's game. Serena is a real ticket seller and I'm excited that finally women's tennis is getting somewhat a good amount of good coverage vs the men

Re: The U.S. Open Women's Single's Final has sold out before the Men's

I wouldnt know if Serena will be in this final until we see how she handles this unique pressure.
But I understand how big an event it becomes if Serena is in it
I figure if she wins round 3 and gets to week 2, this becomes a huge story, and builds every round she wins, probably the biggest event she ever plays.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
