It is better to use public transport to avoid parking costs, and traffic jams are frequent during the championship.
August weather can be very hot and humid, night games are cooler and generally more economical.
The championship is performed during months of high temperature and the park doesn't have much shade, thus you should wear adequate clothing. Do not bring huge bags to avoid long security lines. The 7 train will take you to Flushing Meadows or for a little more money but more comfortable experience takes the long island Railroad; also known as the (LIRR).
