Once known as the U.S. National Championships, the US Open originated as a single men’s tournament held solely for entertainment purposes back in 1881. Not long after, women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles and mixed doubles also became a part of the growing annual tradition.

This was our third slam venue but for us, not the best we've been to. On the plus side, even though centre Court has massive capacity and the seating went high up, we sat in 4 different sections and I believe that you would have a good view from anywhere. On the downside, unlike at the Australian open where the... More

I've been going to the US Open for nearly 30 years. The improvements to the stadiums and grounds at the Billy Jean King National Tennis Center over the year is incredible. I love going the first week because it's more fun to watch matches on the outdoor courts than watch say, Serena Williams or Roger Federer destroy someone in Ashe... More

Clean Beautiful Good food, plenty of places to watch tennis or lounge on the grass. So many venues to see players so you need to download the Open app and schedule your day to see your favorites

I didn't get an opportunity to peek inside the stadium as it doesn't allow public unless one is a member. Moreover, this stadium was under renovation and so, I couldn't get in anyway. The Corona park in the Flushing, Queens, NY looks very peaceful and serene.. towards evening it looks very deserted. I had to rush to the subway before... More

Substantial improvement have been made in the last year to the complex. With the roof spectators and players both benefit from no sun burn ur rain. Kudos to improvements.

This is a fabulous venue to enjoy any tennis match! When you enter the gates the staff is welcoming and extremely helpful.. You can enjoy the match from any seat . There are so many culinary choices, that it is hard to choose. Everything is delicious and worth the price. It's an amazing experience.Don't miss it.

My husband and I have been attending the US Open tennis matches for the past 20+ years and we have been witnesses to the various changes/renovations to the tennis center. This year has been the best improved that we have seen. Started in 2015 and almost completed for the 2016 season, the grounds have been transformed to a tennis fan... More

I worked here in 1978 when I was 13 years old which was the first year at Flushing Meadows. When I say this place has come a long way since that time that would be the understatement of the century. The center these days is amazing. I was there for the first day of Arthur Ashe stadium a few years... More

We spent a huge amount of money traveling to the US open tennis in NYC this year. We bought tickets to all three centres hoping to see some great tennis during the second week of the tournament - quarter finals (Grandstand, Louis Armstrong and Arthur Ashe). The security was very slow and we didn't realize you couldn't take a knapsack... More
