More than 700,000 people attended the US Open last year, and nearly 70 million watched the tournament on TV and online. There's no draw like great tennis, sure, but the US Open is more than that; it's an event whose champions have become icons, ascending from mere sports stardom to full-blown celebrity: Serena and Venus Williams, Andy Roddick, Maria Sharapova and Queens native John McEnroe, a four-time winner in his own backyard. Think such a glitzy affair is out of reach for Joe and Jane Tennis Fan? Think again. You don't need a Bentley limo to get to the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center —you can take the 7 train instead. For proof, check out our roundup of events that make the US Open a bona fide bargain. Just make sure you grab your tickets beforehand, since many sessions sell out quickly. Read on for details.
