For this year’s U.S. Open, the USTA partnered with another New York institution — Tiffany & Co. — to produce one of the better merch lines for the tourney.
The collection consisted of a few charms plus a money clip, luggage tags, and paperweights (boo).
Clockwise, from top left: yellow leather luggage tag, $55; sterling silver money clip, $100; Flaming Ball charm, $85; Tennis Ball charm, $85; U.S. Open Logo charm, $85; Tag pendant necklace, $195. All charms available as necklaces for $125 and as charm bracelet for $185.

By the way, the U.S. Open merch turned out okay, so I was a little premature ragging on it back in the spring. But I will stick to my guns about this: they should have had all the goods up and ready for sale by the time the U.S. Open series started in July (at the Countrywide Classic). From what I remember, things weren’t in full swing until sometime in August.
