    For the French Open, do I just buy a grounds pass for access to the outside courts and matches? Anyone know or been there? Thanks.

    Also, when are the draws going to be released?

    i went there in 2004... one day with a pass, another day on a main court.
    both are nice, both are different... depends on what you want ! ;)

    for booking, it seems to be a bit late, but if ever this URL can help you...

    the main draws will be released on the 26/05/06 at 11:30 ! (friday)
    ... precise, isn't it ?! :p

    and this time the tournament starts on sunday !
    (only some matches on the main courts)

    Can't you buy a grounds pass the day you arrive? How much are they anyhow? Thanks.

    mmmh i guess you can... but better to arrive very early !
    when i went there, there was a huge queue...

    for the prices, it was indicated on the site :

    (a ticket on one of the 3 main courts probably allows you to go on the small courts also)

    The French Open was AWESOME!!! I stayed for the first 2 rounds as well as 1 day of the 3rd round. I bought grounds passes for all the days and still took in 4-5 matches each day. The passes are 20.50 euro each, and u should get in line by 8:45 am (doors open at 10, play starts at 11).

    For anyone going to Wimbledon, the grounds passes are 17 pounds.
