The first advice is on what to take to the stadium, and my recommendation is that do not take anything at all. They are very strict at the entrance, with airport-type controls and they will prevent you from entering with bags, backpacks, ... so if you do not want to take a dislike, I recommend you leave everything in the hotel and go with the minimum in your pockets: a identification document just in case, the tickets, the mobile, a good cap and some money to take a drink during the matches.

As for when to go, I recommend you check the schedule and the shifts of the games the previous day in the section Schedule from the official website of the US Open, and select those that most interest you. To arrive early, be at the stadium half an hour before approximately what the estimated game schedule indicates, because they can advance or delay the matches on the scheduled schedule, and go well protected against the sun.

Finally, if you do not come back very late from the US Open, on the way back I recommend you Get off the subway at Vermon Bld - Jackson Av. and go to see New York from the Gantry Plaza State Park, with spectacular views of Manhattan, especially if it is getting dark.
