    Has anyone here ever purchased Open tickets thru a reseller? Looking for court side seats for opening night and I'm a bit hesitant to buy thru these sites. I actually see some pretty good tickets for a decent price (under $300), so I'm a little tempted.

    Are there really any other options for a single session court side?

    There are some good sites over the internet but most are scams.
    Personally, I would suggest you to use **** or seatwave.com. However, if you are using ****, you should wait until 45 days before the match so that you are able to open a dispuite if there nis a problem. On the other hand, there is no problem with seatwave. this site won't pay the seller until the event has took place. Actually, I am using it to sell some extra french open tickets I have.

    I am thinking of visiting the US Open this year or maybe 2014. I am a newby here, and I am wondering, is it possible to buy tickets for the first week, lets say, from monday till monday? I suppose that I have to buy tickets for day sessions and evening sessions for the whole week?

    Hey gavna. I'm interested as well in US Open tickets and I actually wanted to buy a package since I'm visiting NY mostly to watch US Open.

    In USO/USTA site, they are only taking deposits on mini plans and they are only for promenade seats.

    I'm wondering where can I buy tickets for seats closer to the court. If anyone could suggest a reliable way to buy them, I'd really appreciate it.

    Thank you very much for the explanation gavna.

    Here is the map for Arthur Ashe.
    Even lodge seats are "reserved" seats?

    Because, if I'm not mistaken, the best seats I can get from USTA website right now are lower promenade.

    Here is away to get the best seat in the house and get in free too! Have one of the players invite you to watch their match - you are the guest of the player - you sit with their entourage - friends, coaches, family. Best seat in the house; better even then the VIP celebrity seats.

    Of course; your odds are not good unless you were a childhood friend; their agent or an individual sponsor? Not talking about corporate sponsors - they have their own seats.

    This had better be for a very special girl or very special client. I say this because it can't be for the tennis. Opening night at the USO is like watching a root canal --- lots of squirming and grimaces from a victim who's unable to speak, usually a qualifier lucky enough to face the first or second seed. I certainly enjoy the USO but some of those first round matches are not enough to take me away from watching "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives."

    Good info, thank you. Glad I used my better judgement. I will wait until tickets move to the USTA resale site.
