The US Open by the numbers

The GIST: This year’s US Open was a smash hit, but that's no secret. The lucrative NYC major posted eye-popping numbers across the board, from attendance and ticket prices to television viewership. Records were made to be broken.

799,402: The record-breaking number of attendees for the main draw at the US Open, up 3% from 2022.

3: The number of single-day attendance records set during the first four days of the tournament.

23,771: The number of seats at Arthur Ashe Stadium — and for the finals, tennis fans (including the Biebs) packed it in. The 28.8K attendees who witnessed Novak Djokovic's monumental victory and the 28.1K who cheered on Coco Gauff set records for the highest-attended US Open finals in tournament history. Standing room only.

25: The total number of sessions at the main stadium, which all sold out for the second year in a row.

957,387: Attendance for the entire tournament, making it the first Grand Slam to surpass 950K spectators over three weeks.

$500: The average cost of a ticket to the US Open women's final, which saw prices soar 20% after Coco Gauff punched her ticket to the final. Women's tennis is the wave.

3.4M: The average television viewership for Gauff’s championship matchup against Aryna Sabalenka. By contrast, the average viewership of this year’s men's final was 2.3M, following a trend of women outperforming men in US Open finals viewership. This one's for the girls.
