Hi Paul - if you go to the ATP site and click on the "Tournaments" section, they will give you all the details of draw sizes etc. But yes, they do have a doubles draw as well at Bercy.The tickets went on sale during the Roland Garros tournament so if you're wanting to go, I suggest you buy fairly soon or all the best seats on Centre Court will be gone. There are 3 courts there - the main one and two smaller ones - tickets to the main court give you access to unreserved seating on the other two. Qualifying takes place over the week-end immediately prior to the Monday when the main tournament starts. Hope that helps.

Just a quick note about the photo op's in Bercy- practices are not open to the general public, and as the tournament is an indoors event, the quality of the lighting is exceptionally poor. Its a great tournament to attend, but not really a great opportunity for photos.

It's a Masters Series event so likely all the top players will be there. The top 8 or 16 seeds have a bye in the first round so you might need to take that into consideration before ordering tickets. Court 1 isn't that big, so if a big name will play on that court get a seat early ;)
