Men's Semifinals the Most Expensive Tickets for 2014 US Open Tennis

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- In just two weeks, fans will flock from all over the world to experience the spectacle that is the U.S. Open, the final leg of the Grand Slam of tennis.

Demand on the secondary ticket market has picked up steam ahead of the 134th U.S. Open, which will be held at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, New York.

Here are the five most expensive sessions at the 2014 U.S. Open, according to Championship Tennis Tours, listed by average ticket price on the secondary market.

1) Session 24: Day Session on Saturday, September 6
2014: Average Price (900.95) | Get-in Price (160) | Rank (1)
2013: Average Price (727.59) | Get-in Price (155) | Rank (1)
2012: Average Price (660.49) | Get-in Price (179) | Rank (1)

The most expensive session for the third-consecutive year will feature both men's semifinals matches as well as the women's doubles final. Last year, in this session, top-seeded Novak Djokovic outlasted Stan Wawrinka in a thrilling five-set match that analysts and spectators alike called one of the most entertaining of the tournament. Seeking another memorable performance, spectators have driven up the average ticket price to an astounding 36% premium to 2012.

2) Session 26: Day Session on Monday, September 8
2014: Average Price (818.21) | Get-in Price (140) | Rank (2)
2013: Average Price (703.90) | Get-in Price (105) | Rank (2)
2012: Average Price (617.03) | Get-in Price (161) | Rank (2)

It should come as no surprise that the men's final match is one of the most expensive sessions for U.S. Open tickets. In fact, for three years running, this session has claimed the silver medal. Last year, second-seeded Rafael Nadal captured his 13th Grand Slam after defeating Novak Djokovic in an emotional four-setter in front of a sold-out Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd. The average ticket price marks a 33% uptick from 2012.

3) Session 22: Evening Session on Thursday, September 4
2014: Average Price (530.51) | Get-in Price (78) | Rank (3)
2013: Average Price (652.79) | Get-in Price (94) | Rank (3)
2012: Average Price (539.86) | Get-in Price (102) | Rank (4)

Last year, the Quarterfinal Round witnessed the incredible fall of third-seeded Andy Murray as well as fourth-seeded David Ferrer. Although this session only includes the final men's quarterfinal match, it could present the best bargain for spectators because tickets are trading at a 19% discount to last year.
