Now a historical home restoration professional in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and South Carolina, Hampton Luzak has previously held roles as diverse as a casting director for independent films and an on-air reporter with MSNBC, during which time she covered the US Open and Fashion Week.

The US Open, one of the four biggest events in tennis, set an all-time attendance record in 2018. It was the 50th anniversary of the tournament in the Open Era and the 138th edition overall. Over 800,000 tennis fans attended matches at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. More than 732,000 of these fans attended the two-week main draw, while an additional 96,135 took part in Fan Week activities leading up to the tournament.

The 2018 event marked the first time since 2014 that the US Open broke the 700,000 attendance mark. In 2017, the 691,143 tickets sold generated approximately $125 million in revenue. The 2018 US Open men’s draw was won by Novak Djokovic, his third win at the event and 14th major overall, while the women’s final saw rising star Naomi Osaka defeat American Serena Williams. The 2019 US Open will begin on August 26.
