The Everything Guide to the U.S. Open


The U.S. Open, held at the National Tennis Center in Flushing (right next door to Shea Stadium) from August 27 to September 9, is a marriage of sports and commerce. World-class tennis abounds, as does world-class corporate branding. So be sure to turn off your inner Marxist. The whole experience is expensive—if you’re going for the day, bring at least $50 per person for food and drink, and that’s just for the general concessions. But your trip to Queens doesn’t have to be a hassle. On this page, we offer tips for making the most of going out to the U.S. Open. Here, tennis commentator and former pro Patrick McEnroe offers his advice on the best ways to get the maximum tennis experience, and Wimbledon champ Venus Williams gives us a peek into her spending habits.
