As 2015 US Open Approaches, All Eyes on Serena Williams

SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwired - Aug 31, 2015) - The 135th annual US Open tournament kicks off today at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Competing at this year's tournament in Queens, NY will be an array of the sport's top contenders, including Serena Williams, Novak Djokovic, Maria Sharapova, and Roger Federer.

Although the tournament is full of big names, the name that trumps the rest is Serena Williams. As the women's champion of the 2015 Australian Open, French Open, and Wimbledon, Williams has the opportunity to achieve a calendar year Grand Slam sweep if she can win the US Open, a feat that has not been achieved since Steffi Graf pulled it off in 1988.

After winning the Western & Southern Open last Sunday, Williams stated she was ready to take on opponents in the Big Apple, "I'm ready. I don't care if I win or lose or break even. I'm ready to start it, get it over with, and be done and go on to the next event. But I'm so ready for New York. Let's go, right?"

Whether fans are going there to see Williams, another favorite player, or to see professional tennis matches in general, according to TicketNetwork.com's Exchange, they can expect to pay an average price of $264 for an assigned seat ticket to see an individual match at Arthur Ashe Stadium, the tennis center's main venue. On the other hand, tickets for an Armstrong Stadium assigned seat day pass average $238. While tickets for Armstrong Stadium are good for an entire day and come at a lower average price, the matches played there do not feature the same high profile tennis players who play at Arthur Ashe Stadium. The final option for tickets is a grounds pass, which averages $90 and gives fans first come, first-served access to Louis Armstrong Stadium, the Grandstand, and all field courts located within the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.*
