US Open adding night sessions in new Louis Armstrong Stadium

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — The U.S. Open’s new, 14,000-seat Louis Armstrong Stadium will have dedicated night sessions in 2018.

The U.S. Tennis Association announced Tuesday it is creation changes to a report for a Grand Slam tournament.

This is a initial time a U.S. Open will have dual arenas with double sessions. Through final year, usually Arthur Ashe Stadium had apart day and night programs.

Another switch is that Ashe now will have usually dual matches scheduled during any day session, instead of three. Those day sessions will start during noon instead of 11 a.m.

In Armstrong, a three-match event will start during 11 a.m. for a initial 9 days of a tournament. Half that stadium’s seats will be reserved, a other half ubiquitous admission.

Ashe and Armstrong both have a retractable roof.
