US Open 2017

The US Open 2017 starts today and is one of the biggest tennis tournaments of the year. I am so excited. I grew up in Flushing Queens so we have always been really excited for this tennis tournament every year and usually attend the pre matches.

The US Open is held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows Park, New York and will be held starting today, August 28, through September 10. The US Open is known for bringing together the world’s best tennis players along with great food, kids’ activities and musical performances. People all over the world travel to attend the US Open. Having attended the pre-matches in the past, it is always a packed and fun event.

Below are some US Open tips of you are attending this year:

1. Arrive early and pack light

If you are attending the US Open, morning matches usually start around 11:00 a.m. but gates open at 10:00 a.m. Remember to pack lightly so you can get through security quickly and easily.

US Open tip: the east and south gates are usually the quickest to go through.

2. Tour the Stadiums
Once you are in the US Open find your seat in Arthur Ashe Stadium. It is the largest tennis stadium among the Grand Slam events, and one of the grandest in the world.

At night you can head to the top decks of Arthur Ashe Stadium and look out over the grounds. You can see the fountains and the Unisphere from the World’s Fair creating the perfect instagram backdrop and picture perfect for that selfie.


3. Don’t miss the food and drinks
The US Open is also known for its fantastic food and drinks. Once you are ready for lunch you can go to the Food Village for a quick bite to eat. That is where we ate and the fish tacos are amazing. You can also try several options for a sit-down meal such Aces, Champions Bar & Grill, Mojito, Patio Cafe or the US Open Club.

If its drinks you are looking for there are some several options such as the Heineken Red Star Café, with seating upstairs. For a quick refresher, try Baseline Cocktails, Wine Bar Food and the Grey Goose Bar.

4. Don’t forget to visit the practice courts
The practice courts is usually where you can see your favorite players practicing for their upcoming match. You are pretty close to the players so it is a great opportunity to see your favorite player up close and get some insta worthy pictures.

5. Shopping
The US open also has a lot of shopping opportunities such as Ralph Lauren, Adidas and Wilson store.

Hopefully these tips and guides help you and you have a fantastic time.

    Agree with your points, especially on #4. Don’t forget to visit the practice courts. Practice courts really give fans the chance to be closer to their favorite players. I’m watching US Open at home though, and I’m rooting for Jelena Ostapenko.
