TMZ Sports reports that fans are driving up ticket prices in a frenzy to spots at Arthur Ashe Stadium for Williams’ 3rd-round match against Ajla Tomljanović immediately after her huge win on Tuesday against the second ranked woman in the world Anett Kontaveit
According to TMZ, ticket tech company Logitix. revealed that the cheapest tickets for Friday’s game before Serena’s big win were originally selling for $160, but immediately increased to $450 after she beat Kontaveit in trilling fishing.

Seats in the 100 levels also jumped up in price and increaded from $405 before the win to $1,530 after Serena’s big upset.
The biggest price spike was seen in the courtside section where seats went from $805 to $3,500.
Considering the likes of Tiger Woods, Bill Clinton, and Mike Tyson are making their way to games, it’s not a big surprise that people are rushing to see Serena for one last time.
Before the start of the US Open, Serena revealed to Vogue that she would be “evolving” away from tennis and retiring for the sport after the US Open.
