THE SLAM: Nadal -vs- Alcaraz sold out in three hours so they opened up the upper bowl. If you want tickets for this historic match I suggest getting them right away. Most of the upper bowl is already sold and there are only a few hundred seats left.
This is the group ticket link that allows you to see the seats.
