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.
