2013 U.S. Open tickets 12% More Expensive than 2012

Just about one month in advance of the U.S. Open Tennis Championship, many sessions have sold out for America’s Grand Slam event. But with seven countries represented in the current ATP Top 10, it is international flavor, which has created big demand for a taste of U.S. Open tennis tickets.

US Open PricesOverall, 2013 U.S. Open Tennis tickets are averaging $348 per seat, 12% higher than last year’s figure.  Sessions 1-22 of the U.S. Open run through the Men’s and Women’s quarterfinals. The odd-numbered sessions mark the daytime sessions, which kick off at 11am. The even-numbered sessions are those in the evening, which begin at 7pm. In terms of average ticket prices, it is no big surprise that tickets get progressively more expensive as the tournament goes on. However, get-in prices remain relatively inexpensive and rather consistent throughout the first 22 sessions.

Although one might think that U.S. Open tennis tickets to the Men’s Final would be the most expensive session of the tournament, it is actually only the second most expensive. Session 24, containing the Men’s Semifinals and Women’s Doubles Final on Saturday, September 27th, is currently the most expensive session ticket of this year’s U.S. Open, at an average price of $799 dollars and a get-in price of $145.

U.S. Open tennis tickets to the Men’s Final check in at an average price of $744, with a get-in price of $130. In last year’s tournament, fans got to see Andy Roddick, the last American to win the U.S. Open back in 2003, make it all the way to the fourth round before falling victim to 2009 Champion Juan Martin del Potro. Following the loss, Roddick retired from professional tennis. Without an American in the top 19 of the ATP World Tennis Rankings, it looks like tennis fans will once again have to wait yet another year for an American to become the first to win the U.S. Open since Roddick.
