US Open ground admission on the last few days

So I didn't know but the US Open has ground admission tickets every day even on the final day.
What to watch on the ground courts on the final day? Trying your luck to catch the finalist warming up on a practice court? Is that what the ticket is for, greedy USTA?

For all the greed this is not a good example. Although they did jack the price 300% a few years ago from $5 to $15.

It's fun. Watch junior finals. Wheelchair finals. And can watch men's final on big screen in front of Ashe and/or usually ct 17.

Can eat, drink and be merry. I'm not aware of
too many NYC located paid events much cheaper that are more fun. Last year I blew off early part of Fed/Novak to watch Fritz/Paul final.

Not sure what the problem is, here.

Doesn't seem like there's much to charge for on finals day, but also doesn't seem like there'd be much demand for free admission. Nobody making you go and stare at the empty courts. Not interested? Don't pay. *shrug*

Keeps going up. 500% increase ($5 to $25) since they started final weekend ground passes is piggy.

Thursday is free though.

Think of it as admission to an outdoor sports bar. The Jr finals are cool to watch. The place is not a zoo, the lines at concession stands and restrooms are short. It is much easier to get a seat or table in the food court.

You can still feel the energy even if you don't have a seat in the big house.
