Tennis legends are going head to head at the 2015 US Open, now through September 13th. This year’s tournament offers excitement on and off the courts, most visibly apparent in the massive, 6,000 ton steel structure that will support the soon-to-be-installed retractable roof over Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Set to be completed in 2016, the retractable roof will be the largest over any tennis stadium in the entire world, with over 62,500 square feet of open space.
This new structure is but one facet of the ongoing transformation of the US Open grounds, which encompasses construction projects through 2018. Those in attendance at the 2015 US Open can check out the vision for the entire transformation project at the US Open of Tomorrow space near Arthur Ashe Stadium.
And that’s not even to mention the excitement of what’s actually happening on the courts this year.
Serena Williams, the overwhelming favorite in the women’s field, has won her past 21 US Open matches and is looking to be the first player since 1988 to win all four majors in the same calendar year. A crowded pack of contenders–first and foremost among them World Ranked No.2 Simona Halep–won’t let Williams walk away the victor without a fight.
The men’s title is just as hotly contested, with world No.1 Novak Djokovic and world No. 2 and five-time US Open champion Roger Federer leading a field that features all of the world’s top 99 players.
Global tennis titans facing off make the US Open the hottest end of summer event in New York City–and the world-class entertainment experiences and top notch food and cocktails available at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center make it the tournament to attend and remember every year.
The 2015 US Open is being played now through Sunday, Sept. 13, at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, N.Y.
And here’s an insider tip: don’t miss the day session matches on Tuesday 9/8 and Wednesday 9/9 and the women’s semifinals on Thursday 9/10 that could be the prelude to history. Click here to purchase US Open tickets and for more ticket information.
