Previewing 2013 US Open Tickets

With only a little over a month to go until the US Open, we wanted to take a look at the current state of US Open tickets. Currently, we have plenty of tickets available for all 26 sessions, from the August 26 first session all the way through the Men’s Final on September 9th.

Sessions 1-22 of the Open run through the Men’s and Women’s quarterfinals. The odd-numbered sessions mark the daytime sessions, which will begin at 11am. The even-numbered sessions are the evening session in which play will begin at 7pm. As you might expect, the average ticket price per session, progressively gets more expensive as the tournament goes on. However, get-in prices remain relatively inexpensive and rather consistent throughout the first 22 sessions. Perfectly exemplifying this phenomenon is that while Session 3, a first round day session, comes in at an average of $168 with a get-in of $52, while Session 18, a Men's Round of 16/Women's Quarterfinals night session, is currently averaging $386 but carries a get-in of just $52.
