Can’t beat free! “We want more people to get inspired by the U.S. Open, to get engaged with our sport and we are using fan week as a way to do it,” said Chris Widmaier, a spokesman for the United States Tennis Association. “Everything is free and everything is open.”
One of the best kept secrets of the U.S. Open is now a full-fledged event. The public can walk through the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center for free from Aug. 21 through Aug. 26 and see players participate in the U.S. Open Qualifying Tournament.
