Jess, how come you were there for just a day?

And Gabs, how much is it for a whole day of tennis and passes for going to different courts and stuff?

My plan is to collect as much information as possible so I can start saving money.

There are tournaments which are much closer to me like Rome, Umag, etc. but Roland Garros is sooo !!! I would love to go to Paris next year!

I don't know how much it costs, usually I go to the Benny Berthet day which is the charity day before RG starts. But the "normal" tickets I had were either won or given by a guy my dad knows.

But you have to know it's very difficult to get tickets (a lil less difficult since this year but still), it's a lotery now.

I was on a trip through Europe and we were only in Paris for 3 days, so only one of those days was a free day that I could go to the tennis. It was the first Sunday.

Crazy kids.

Based on the clay-court form of the rest of the field, Mr. Djokovic can only beat himself.

I'm not satisfied with the news from the field

Aren't you supposed to just BUY the tickets? Reserve them on-line or pay for them using a credit card or something simple like that?

It's very difficult to get tickets to RG now, I had to enter the lottery too. In the winter... December-February, you can sign up for the lottery and say when you want tickets, but they don't let you know until around April whether you get them or not, and you aren't charged until that later date.

I think *most* people got what they wanted in the lottery, but there are limits to how many tickets you can get and how many days you can have tickets for the show courts, etc.

I got all the tickets I wanted when I entered, which was one for each show court, so I had a good experience. This year was the first year they did it this way, it's done sort of like Wimbledon, but it's easier to get tickets in than Wimbledon still.

My tickets were around 36-50 euro, depending on court and how good the seat was.

it was worse before, you had almost no chanced if you were not a FFT (french federation) tennis player
what I find really unfair is that some people somehow manage to get tickets for the whole tourney... cheaters! I also cant stand those VIP who have the best seats but couldnt care less about tennis... they come, have lunch at the VIP village, go watch tennis for 10-20 minutes in order to be "seen" and leave pfff
