If you buy a Grounds pass you will have access to all areas except Arthur Ashe stadium. You can buy a ticket to Ashe stadium as well, and have acess to all areas. You can buy the grounds pass at the ticket counter. the day you attend. Same thing for Ashe the first few days. they open at 9 AM. get there early. I was there at 7 AM and was the 3rd in line both days, I went in 2002 (attended the first two days of the open 2002 , Monday and Tuesday). If you plan to go the first week, a grounds pass is the way to go. Lots to see on the outside courts and practice courts. at those courts you are '"up close and personal". After buying your ticket at the ticket counter, you then head over to the entrance and await the opening of the gates at 10 AM. while waiting for the ticket counter and main gates to open you can get ahold of the matches for the day sheet and plan where you will be spending your time. if there is a good match up first on the grandstand or Armstrong stadium, and your there early.. meaning you are one of the first at the main entrance, as soon as they open the gates you can "race" into the grandstand and get a court side seat (open seating). same thing for Armstrong stadium except for the first few rows at court side are reserved.
