Our clients at the 2010 US Open sent us some great photos today of the action at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Do you want to go to the US Open Tennis tournament this year, but concerned you’ll buy tickets and the event will be rained out? Don’t worry! TicketCity has you covered.
Rain-out insurance can be purchased for 10% of the purchase price of your tickets. If you purchase the rain-out insurance, you will be refunded the total ticket purchase price (minus the insurance fee) if the session is rained out.
If you do not purchase rain-out insurance, you will be given an in-store credit equal to the face value of the ticket (which is often below the purchase price).
So rain out insurance is a good idea! You can add rain-out insurance to your order up to 72 hours before the session begins.

Some thought it would never end … and they were right! After a grueling 9 1/2 hour match, John Isner (USA) and Nicolas Mahut (FR) can finally call it a night. The match was set to begin yesterday, June 22 and was suspended because of the weather. It will now go into a 3rd day, making this officially the longest tennis match in history – and it’s not over yet.
Normally, this could be settled with a tie breaker game to avoid never-ending games. However, Wimbledon is not just any tennis tournament and it does not offer a tie breaker in the finals. The players will rest tonight and prepare to duke it out again in Day 3 of their match tied at 59-59.
Luckily we know where you can get the tickets to their follow up match!

Nadal is back after recovering from knee injuries and looking strong. Andy Murray is now ranked No. 2 in the world and Federer’s newly found fatherhood seems to suit him well.
What has made this grand slam different than past years? Well the recent US Open series tournaments have produced rare matchups in the series history.

This was also the strongest playing field in Cincinnati’s history. Accecpting only 44 men and 45 women directly, the lowest ranked man on the premliminary list was No. 44 while the lowest ranked female was No. 49.
