From the US Open to the French Open, tennis fans can all agree that the aggressive atmosphere that encompasses these tournaments makes for one of the world’s most sought after sporting events to see live; and they have the ticket prices to show for it.
With the sport as a whole on the rise, attending one of the four Grand Slam tournaments can get quite pricy if you don’t get a jump on the ticket demand. Whether you are looking to get a seat at the Australian Open, Wimbledon, French Open, or The US Open, prices for all four of the majors have been trending upwards over the past couple of years and the earlier you can get your hands on the tickets the more likely you are to pay less for them.
