US Open Fan Week expands

Starting Monday, the US Open presents the second year of its free “Fan Week” during the qualifying.

There’s an extra day; matches begin on Monday. And the Legends matches now will extend over three days (all male, looks like).


There also will be a women’s Hall of Fame doubles match featuring Martina Navratilova, Lindsay Davenport, Tracy Austin and Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario.

Arthur Ashe Stadium will be accessible for the first time, and there will be a slate of musical acts.

A new Althea Gibson sculpture will be unveiled in front of Ashe. And there’s a Pride event on Aug. 22.
