How To Get Tickets To The 2011 U.S. Open (It's Not Too Late)
The U.S. Open is already underway in Flushing Meadows, but that doesn't mean it's too late to get tickets.
Ticket packages are sold out, but there are still individual tickets available to both the Arthur Ashe Stadium and the Louis Armstrong Stadium at USTA.USOpen.org, via Ticketmaster.
Tickets range in price from $20- $620 for Ashe Stadium and from $110 - $170 for Louis Armstrong Stadium. Most of the General Admission tickets are sold out, but there are still some tickets available in both stadiums depending on the day. The weekend matches are in highest demand but if you have a flexible schedule and can attend on a weekday, you will likely still be able to get tickets in one of the stadiums.
And, for the U.S. Open, even the worst seats in the house have some advantages. For instance, if you canít get into Ashe, you can still watch those matches on a giant screen outside the stadium. If youíre in Ashe but want to see whatís going over at Louis Armstrong, you can walk on the upper concourse to catch a glimpse, and if you end up in the nosebleed section over at Louis Armstrong, that's actually the best seat in the house because you can also peek into the matches happening at the grandstand.
If you just absolutely can't make it to Flushing Meadows, Manhattan's Madison Square Park will host a free viewing party with TVís showing the live matches, along with games, food and giveaways between September 5-11 too.
