The schedule: Schedule

The US Open which overcharges for everything else (small bottle of Evian $5) offers free, closeup tennis matches between aspiring qualifiers and practice by the greats as well during four days of summer, this year in ideal weather. Experience the real thing, though with less drama than on TV, because the sound effects are missing – tennis shoes on US Open courts make hardly a sound, and the racquets hit the ball with little noise. Even from a front seat in the main stadium, the action seems to take place in a dream. However, on the open air or practice courts at least, for studying technique and meeting players close up – a yard away – these days are matchless.
