According to Forbes.com, The Open has stated a purse target of 50 million dollars in 2017, while Wimbledon too announced that they would increase prices 40 percent to a total purse of 34.4 million dollars.
The report said that Labor Day tickets would be 88 percent more than before it, and even though prices during the first week will be cheaper in the evening, once work schedules kick in, night sessions would be more expensive.
Most people think that the best way to enjoy the Open is to get a grounds pass for the first week, which can mean a front-row seat for some great battles on the outer courts, the report added.
The cheapest ticket for this year's US Open is the first Tuesday afternoon, when it will cost 24 dollars to see the action, the report further said.
