Fans of Kei Nishikori and Marin Cilic - or those who simply would like to experience the men's final at the U.S. Open - can find some relative bargains in the final hours leading up to the match on Monday afternoon.

According to the secondary market search engine SeatGeek, tickets are by far the least expensive it has seen for an Open final.

Prices paid for courtside and loge seats have fallen by almost 60 percent since the two men's semifinal upsets of Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer - from $3,931 Friday to $1,651 for courtside locations Monday, and from $825 to $356 for the loge.

Tickets have fallen far less for the more distant regions of Arthur Ashe Stadium.

As of 12:30 p.m., the least expensive ticket available in the Promenade was $195.

Courtside seats for last year's Djokovic-Rafael Nadal final averaged $3,913 compared to this year's $1,651.
