The U.S. Open—New York’s exhilarating summer sports event—is one of the most exciting things to do in Queens each year and finally, it's back at full capacity for 2021. 

"We are extremely excited to be able to welcome our incredible fans back to the US Open this year," said Mike Dowse, USTA CEO. "While we were proud that we were able to hold the event in 2020, we missed having our fans on-site, because we know that they are a large part of what makes the US Open experience unlike any other. Indeed, the challenges presented by the pandemic were tough on us all, but our sport came together like never before and tackled each challenge head on. Interest in tennis has accelerated, with four million new and returning players taking to the court last year. Our sport surged in the toughest of times, and this year’s US Open promises to be an unforgettable celebration of the game, those who play it, and those who revel in it."
