    :confused: I'm thinking of going to watch the US Open qualifying, since I don't have any other time to watch the grand matches. If any of you have been there, are the games enjoyable? [I know they're pros..] Anyways, do you still have to pay $14 for tickets and do you have to pay to get it the grounds?

    Also, are the matches held on the outer courts?

    Yes the matches are enjoyable! There is no admission and the matches
    are held on the outside courts. Many of the top guys can be seen
    practicing in Armstrong.

    I always go the Friday before the main draw starts and it is a great day!

    Well, what day of qualifying do you recommend I go? You said Friday, and I mean, me and my cousin really want to see some top pros too, whether they're practicing or not. Again, do you need a grounds pass during qualifying to go to Armstrong?

    There is no admission, you can go anywhere but Ashe. I always go on
    Friday because it has been an annual bus trip and I believe its the last
    or second last day of the quallies.

    There are always big names practicing in Armstrong or Grandstand, and
    usually you will find some familiar pro names that must qualify playing
    on the outside courts.

    The beauty is it's not overly crowded, and you can just walk around all
    day and always find good matches going on. I actually prefer watching
    on the outside courts because you can get so close.

    Have fun!
