Get ready to witness the excitement of the 2023 US Open, a tennis extravaganza that promises thrilling matches and star-studded events. This year marks a significant milestone, celebrating 50 years of equal prize money for both men and women players. It’s a groundbreaking achievement pioneered by Billie Jean King and the US Open that changed tennis forever. The event symbolizes a convergence of personality and persistence, resonating with the charismatic champion, Billie Jean King.

The anticipation starts with the US Open Fan Week, commencing on August 22. It’s a prelude to the grand event, serving up six days of tennis magic, star-studded engagements, and family-friendly activities. With each day featuring something unique, there are many reasons to be excited. Whether you're a die-hard tennis fan or simply seeking a memorable experience, the US Open delivers on all fronts.

Highlighting the week is the "Stars of the Open" charity event, aimed at raising funds for humanitarian relief in Ukraine. Tennis enthusiasts can witness top players in action, including Carlos Alcaraz and crowd-favorite Frances Tiafoe. A series of mixed doubles matches featuring legendary players like John McEnroe, Chris Eubanks, Matteo Berrettini, Elina Svitolina, and Jessica Pegula promise dynamic matchups. “Flavor of the Open” and “Sounds of the Open” round out the festivities, with Sebastián Yatra headlining the concert on Friday, August 25.
