Who's going? Who has already been there?

I know it's still a long time to go.

Well, who's planning on going to this tournament? I was thinking about going to this tournament the other day because a close friend of mine lives close to Lyon and in case he allows me to stay at his place I would be stupid if I let this great chance slip.

Approximately 4 weeks before the tournament starts I would be 100% sure whether I can go or not. I'm kinda anxious already though and since there are several questions that I want to be answered before making any more plans I was wondering if there was someone on this board who has been there already and would be willing to tell me...
...how much the tickets approximately cost...
...and if it's easy to meet players at this tournament and to watch them practice...
...and of course I'd also love to know the players' hotel.

Thank you so much in advance.

Who wants to play with my balls?

No absolutely not! you can't see any player training because there is NO training courts, only the central court and another smaller court for the doubles but players have to train somewhere else and you're not allowed to see them... about meeting players? not easy, really... that's only my opinion.. the first time i only met Santoro the second time Malisse and Ferrero but i was backstage! so i let you guess...

tell me when you'll be sure if you're going or not...

Re: Who's going? Who has already been there?

Thank you so much for answering my questions.
I still haven't talked to my friend at whose place I want to stay but I'm going to email him today or so. If I don't get a reply I will call him on his birthday which is on August 31 and then I can tell you if I can really go.

Re: Who's going? Who has already been there?

there are trainning courts but it's not in the stadium, it's a liltle bit far from it!!!!!
as every year i'll go to this tournament !!!

It's quite easy to met players in LYON: i met Santorro, LLodra, Safin, Kuerten, Clement, Schuettler, schrichapan, youzhny and many other!!!!!!!
U don't hav to necessary go backstage to meet them!!!!!!!!!!

-4 RG, what else?-A WIMBLEDON

I'll be in Lyon tomorrow morning as I have to change busses there (my final destination will be Grenoble for a few days), maybe I have some time there (I won't get my travel schedule until tonight short before I leave) to check out a bit of the city.
