Re: Roland Garros to lose French GS?
I've been to Roland Garros the last six years and its a tournament I love, I much prefer it Wimbledon, the atmsophere there is great and ticket prices are much more reasonable than Wimbledon, and far easier to get into Philipe Chatrier and Suzanne Lenglen courts than Centre Court and Court 1. Every year I've queued up the morning of the quarterfinals and have always got tickets for the show courts, when I say queued, I mean like, no more than 90 minutes - nothing like the queues at Wimbledon where all you get is the outside pass for £20 after queing for hours on end (I've done that many times, in the end you're just glad to get into Wimbledon!).
Last year I spoke to some of the officials there and looked at the plans they had on display for the stadium. I hope they can get the plans approved, it would be a shame to have to move - that's a very tall order indeed. I know Australia did it but thats over 20 years ago and I don't think Kooyong had around 19 courts? I stand to be corrected by any Aussies out there.
