2. Head into the city – New York City has so much to offer beyond just the US Open tennis tournament. Check out this monumental metropolis and enjoy other activities like watching a play on Broadway, taking a cruise around Manhattan island, or catching a Yankees baseball game!
3. Watch a match at a backcourt with a grounds pass – While Arthur Ashe is the premier match location, hundreds of matches take place each day on the smaller courts. These games provide a much more intimate setting and will enable you to watch your favorite players up close. To really watch a professional tennis player from close range is quite the sight!
4. Take care of yourself – Sunscreen, water, hats, umbrellas, and comfortable clothing are essential items to bring to the US Open. With the last breath of summer weather sure to take its toll on some tennis fans, make sure you are prepared and take good care of yourself. Be sure to eat healthy as well to keep up energy.
5. Catch a night match – The US Open truly comes alive at night! Don’t rush to get home, because the night tennis matches are often filled with intensity and drama as the lights shine on the players. Few tennis tournaments enjoy night matches so take this opportunity to watch the special event!
