Watching practice sessions?

Question: Do the top players practice on the outside courts at Flushing Meadows this week and if they do, are the sessions open for the public to attend?

Just found this in the NY Post:

"New for 2003, the doors to the USTA National Tennis Center will open for tennis fans on Sunday, Aug. 24, for a free "Open Practice." Fans will be able to watch the game's biggest stars, including hot newcomers Maria Sharapova and Ashley Harkleroad, the Belgian waffles Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin-Hardenne, and men's contenders Roger Federer and Lleyton Hewitt warm up for the real deal."
