U.S. Open 2013

Tennis fans descended upon Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, New York, on Monday, August 26th, for the opening day of the 2013 U.S. Open. This year’s tournament, as usual, will be extremely lucrative for the city, generating more than $720 million. BTR Pulse’s Lauren Hawker spoke to people about their love of the sport and who they look forward to seeing in competition.
