It was our first time experience watching live US OPEN Tennis game at Arthur Ashe Stadium. We were all excited to gain experience and see the match live. We had booked our tickets 3 weeks before the game. We really wanted to go for Semi Finals or Finals but it was too late to get the cheaper tickets. So we ended up going for Men’s &Women’s 3rd Round Game.
We watched very competitive game, Women’s Singles between Sloane Stephens US player and Ana Ivanovic Serbian Player and Men’s Singles between Mardy Fish US Player and Giles Simon French Player. Ana Ivanovic & Mardy Fish were winner, this wins promotes them to the fourth round of the Grand Slam.
The Arthur Ashe Stadium hosts all the top-seeded matches and finals. We were at the entrance by 6pm. Our first game was at 7pm Women’s’ singles following Men’s Singles game lasted till 1:30am. Total hours inside the stadium were almost 6-7 hours.
