Today, the US Open makes Queens the place to be. The best tennis players in the world will vie for top prize at the final Grand Slam of the year, and this sport will have New York under its spell for two glorious weeks.
Arthur Ashe Stadium is huge, and unless you have corporate tickets, the worst place to watch two pros hit a tennis ball. But the rest of the courts offer a chance to sit mere feet from the top pros. While Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Maria Sharapova haven’t set foot on those courts in years, you may catch the new Genie Bouchard, the Canadian player who has sets hearts afire with her play and beauty. Or see Nick Krygios, an up-and-coming American player.
Either way, there are millions of reasons to head out to the tournament during the fortnight. Besides the great players on court, there are plenty of celebrities who will be there taking in the action. There’s live music and activities for kids too.
Maybe I’ll see you out there. Bring your sunscreen
