NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- For every Rafael Nadal or Venus Williams pushing for break points during the U.S. Open, there's a suite full of suits in the stadium above them pushing for deals. Let the games begin.From Aug. 30 to Sept. 1, the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, Queens, will host some of the toughest competitors in the world for its annual end-of-summer rite. Some of them will be in $10,000 to $65,000 suites at Arthur Ashe Stadium, where sponsors including JPMorgan Chase ( JPM), IBM ( IBM), American Express ( AXP) and Continental Airlines ( CAL) will be serving wine and cheese and setting up contracts. As Sony ( SNE) CEO Howard Stringer once said, it's a great place to get business done.
