I don't like Djokovic, but I love Rena, so I guess it would depend on who are the lower-ranked/non-American players :)

I didn't even bother watching Djok last night, watched first set of MJMS-Lucic and the final set of Baghdatis (such a trooper, so likeable!) and when that wrapped up headed over to AA. I must say $24 for a night session at AA in first few days is pretty good.

Ofcourse the session with the named players and top athletes.

If I just wanted to watch competitive but mediocre level matches between scrubs, I would buy the (much) cheaper tickets for the outer courts or visit some random international clay tournaments

If I were to pay money to fly over to the US to watch tennis, I'd definitely give my all just to watch the famous top players playing no matter what.:oh:

I watched dolgopolov/levine on 17 last night. You couldn't pay me to sit through two massacres on ashe in the nosebleeds. You get so much more of an appreciation for how good these players are up close. And you get to experience the rowdy/drunk fans who are calling Dolgopolov "dog boy" the whole match.

Much as i like the Djoker i'm not very interested in his matches against Lorenzi and co. So second for me. I wouldn't dream of ever paying a sh*tload of money to watch famous players with binoculars on Ashe either.

well to be fair the night session tickets in the first 3 days are not that expensive, but beyond that, yes.

I haven't seen all of that first round Vika match either,just some glimpses. Glad for her it went so well but it's just not interesting to watch. And Ashe stadium really doesn't look so inviting.

My GF is a very fanatical tennis follower but she always prefers to go to Halle and Rotterdam instead of going to the big tournaments in the Enormodomes as she calls them.

It depends on your situation.
If you're flying from Singapore, you want to see the top players.

Lisicki vs Cirstea was a somewhat close match but would VIP and suites owners be happy to see that? Not really.
There's a much bigger buzz when Serena is around than anyone else.

Djokovic tries way too hard, everyone knows that.

Serena at night is golden. Don't care about seeing Djokovic at all, unless he's getting beat by someone. :D

That is a good price. Makes up for having to sit through the opening ceremony. ;)

The only reason I'd go to a show court on 1st week would be to see the arena cheaply, otherwise I'd buy groundpass on 1st week. But if I had to say a match I'd like to see on a show court on 1st week, it'd have the host country's player, just to see the crowd cheering for him/her. Otherwise, I'd still prefer a top player's match against a walking bye, at least I'd see his/her greatness, or witness the upset of the tournament. Of course, there might be interesting match-ups between lower ranked players but nothing guarantees those matches would be interesting.

These threads happen every year, and every year it seems the USO breaks attendance records.....

If you put #25 versus a top 50 player (neither American) the casual fan who paid to see stars would be really pissed. Also, this is the first round. It's hard to predict awesome matches, and lower ranked players have some blowouts among them anyway.
