The U.S. Open will be held in New York City with 100% spectator capacity marking the first return to a normal tournament for the global tennis community.
Last year, the United States Tennis Association (USTA) still held a "fan-less" grand slam after receiving permission from government state officials.
USTA Chief Revenue Officer Lewis Sherr, told FOX Business that last year’s U.S. Open didn’t have the same feeling as in other years.

"We take our energy from New York and the ability to imbue the event once again with the…energy of New York and our fans is huge and exciting for all of us," Sherr said.
In 2019, the tournament hosted more than 700,000 attendees. Tickets for this year’s event went on sale to the general public last week, beginning on July 15.
