Individual tickets are still available for this year’s tournament, and they’re being sold through Ticketmaster. That means get ready to be frustrated with those cryptic security questions and totally outrageous service charges. At least there’s an interactive seating map available, so you’ll know exactly how high your nosebleed seats are. There are still plenty of seats available, but it's starting to get limited for the weekend day sessions in September.
Tickets range from around $55 up to $85 for the cheap seats at Arthur Ashe Stadium, depending on the day and time you plan to attend. Just getting into the grounds will set you back about the same, and you’ll be able to attend some of the field court matches. Even the mini-plans are sold out for this year, so you’ll have to plan your own by clicking the refresh button on your browser over and over again.
Tickets to the full series this year are already sold out, but if you want to get a jump-start on the 2011 US Open you can plop down a $100 deposit for next year. You’ll be guaranteed seating in the Lower Promenade, and your final seats will be assigned based on the best availability. So if you love it this year, be sure to jump on this for next.
