Is there a ticket scam on at the US Open?

Opening day of US Open tennis in New York

I’ve been going to the US Open since 1999. The first time I went, I was alone, a novice feeling her way around a major tournament. I was picked up in turn by an elderly Jewish couple with season tickets, a father and son from Columbia, and a Junior player who had lost in his opening round and needed someone to latch on to until his parents could pick him up. Ever since then, it’s been never a dull moment at the Open.

In all the years that I have been attending the Open, I have never purchased tickets in advance. Sure I obsess about doing so, but the draw often changes so dramatically that it almost does not make sense to buy tickets in advance. And until this year, that was never a problem.

Thanks for responding. Honestly I probably would not have stood my ground if the man on Day 1 had not advised us to. I would probably have believed that the folks at the Open were dealing honestly with fans.

Very interesting...

Good job standing your ground! Of course, you probably would anyway just because of the drive!
