The U.S. Open will welcome back fans at 100 percent capacity this summer, the United States Tennis Association announced Thursday.

Tickets will go on sale to the public on July 15 for the Aug. 30-Sept. 12 grand slam event at Flushing Meadows in New York.

Last year's tournament was held without spectators due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We are extremely excited to be able to welcome our incredible fans back to the US Open this year," USTA chief executive officer Mike Dowse said.

"While we were proud that we were able to hold the event in 2020, we missed having our fans on-site, because we know that they are a large part of what makes the US Open experience unlike any other."

Tournament organizers will continue to follow all current CDC guidelines regarding the coronavirus.

Austria's Dominic Thiem and Japan's Naomi Osaka are the defending U.S. Open singles champions.
