US Open Tennis Championships
Flushing Meadows is unlike any other Grand Slam: feel the carnival atmosphere on the outside courts and hear the crowd scream for their favourite at the Arthur Ashe Stadium. This is a tournament for the people, so expect a big American welcome. There are hotdog stands, refreshing beers, and pumping music blasts out during the changeovers. This isn’t traditional, polite Wimbledon – the US Open has its own character, and the electricity of New York City can be felt throughout the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Be sure not to miss the atmosphere of a night session under the lights – watch the beautiful New York skyline as the sun goes down and the drama ratchets up.
Although out of the city, Flushing Meadows is an easy 30-minute subway ride from Manhattan’s Grand Central station. This means you can combine one of the tennis majors with a visit to one of the most exciting cities on the planet. Soak up the atmosphere of Times Square, hit the stores on Madison Avenue, and take in a world-class show on Broadway.
