Everyone in New York knows one thing: the only way to cap off a perfect summer in the city is taking the 7 to Flushing for the US Open. Every year, the Grand Slam event brings tennis fans to one of the finest sports venues in the world to witness legendary rivalries, matches and players at the height of their game. To many New Yorkers, Labor Day Weekend wouldn't be the same without the tournament in their backyard.
This year's US Open features living legends Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova and Rafael Nadal, as well as Serena Williams, who will vie for the first calendar-year Grand Slam title since Steffi Graf clinched it in 1988. Add that historic drama to the world-class entertainment, food and cocktails that have become a mainstay of the tournament and Flushing Meadows is sure to be electric this year.
The 2015 US Open takes place August 31-September 13. Buy tickets and let it be your finale to another great summer in the city. Nothing beats being here.
