Bercy can be reached by line 6 or 14. Hotels I can't recommend. Me thinks you can stay wherever you want depending on what you want to do in Paris. Just tennis or also other things. Personally I liked Bercy although it's cold on court 1 and the practice courts aren't open for the people. The matchups were fine though.

Both airports are easy accesible by bus and train so just look where you can find the cheapest flight.

Anything else? Just say so

You can buy them there or order them via ticketnet.fr. I've also heard you can buy them with a discount during RG, but you need to ask Rosie about that.

Roisin,

Check this URL: http://www.bnpparibasmasters.org/

It's the tournament's last year URL. Then click on Guide. You will find all what you need to know. It is both in French and English.

yeah the discount during RG is interesting. But it seems like they sell only a limited number of places during RG because a friend of mine couldn't buy any. So if you want to try that be careful.
Last year i bought my tickets during the charity day in RG. To give you an idea, i bought tickets for category one (i was sitting in the 5th row, facing the 1st players' chair when they go on court) and it was 25 euros each. The years before i bought them @ the store called La Fnac (almost like Virgin Megastore, you find them everywhere here) and i paid 42 euros... and of course the seats i got were not as good as the ones i had last year. So you see the difference
