    No, I have not heard either. And my reservation went in on Nov. 13th.

    It appears they are following their policy posted on the site:

    "The handling of application forms for the general public and from abroad will begin on 26 March. The results of the applications will be sent out between 30 March and 15 April 2007."

    Well they write that you will get the answer on the 15th of April as the latest, and it´s the 11th today. So they still have some days to go :)

    But it´s gonna be exiting, I ordered mine pretty late, like 3 weeks ago

    I have to agree on the fact that it´s really difficult to plan your trip, when you don´t know whether you´ll get tickets or not. Do any of you guys have an idea of how good ones chances are? And another question. In a city like Paris, will the shops all over the city be closed on a sunday, even though it´s a big city?

    Just received an email from the FTF confirming my two tickets for Tuesday, May 29th.

    My order was placed in November 2006.

    They moved me up one level higher than I requested in Phillipe Chartrier - but hey, it looks like I'll make it. I will feel better when tickets are in hand.

    Good luck to all - you should hear soon.

    I'm a new member who's been keeping an eye on this page for the last few days. I too ordered my tickets in Nov '06, but have heard nothing yet.

    Has anyone else received information on their orders, besides the very lucky Ragpicker?

    I agree that this waiting process is nerve racking! You would think we'd have heard something by now, considering that right now it is close to 9:30 pm in Paris and the French usually don't get a lot done on the weekend.

    In reply to AsgerHO. Most of the shops in Paris are closed on Sunday, but many of the museums are open.

    got it!

    my friend told me that she got an email from FO, and we have our tickets. We suspect that we might got downgraded(because of the ticket prices) - we've asked for PC. She placed her ticket order mid Jan 2007.

    Anyway, its great that we got the tickets!

    Good luck!

    still waiting for my FO tickets...

    ordered them end of '06...recd an email to let me know that my order was validated, and they charged my CC...i don't have hard copy tix yet...i'm also an FFT member and so I have some priority but still no news...i've looked around the french message boards, and it's really a mixed bag: some have had their tix for 2 wks while others still wait...chances are most here will get what they ask as they give priority to buyers outside of the parisian area (& many say those who order 4+ tix get cherrypicked and betters chances)
    keep me posted!

    Yup, looking forward to it man!

    Does anyone know how long it takes them to arrive at your home, or are they to be picked up at the ticket office?

    Is it possible to get grounds pass tickets the first few days of the tournament? I have been to the other majors and, while it can be difficult to get into the show courts, it's not a problem to get onto the grounds. I've heard this may not be the case with the French Open. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Good question. Curious about this too. Can someone just show up there on the day in question and get a ticket?

    I´d like to know as well. I just received an answr today. And I didn´t get any tickets, so that was quite annoying.

    But we have already booked flight tickets, and are secured tickets for the 31st of May, but we would like to watch tennis at least two days when er are there

    I wonder what the scalping situation is like there, if it even exists?

    Also just got a reply. Unfortunately negative. And it seemed so easy from last year... Now I am stuck with my tickets for the Trophee des Legendes. Debating whether to still go...

    Means buying tickets from private citizens. Frequently these people are hanging around outside the venue offering you to sell you the tickets they've already bought, often for much more money than they originally cost. Slight risk of phony tickets or getting cheated in some way I guess, and in some places "scalping" is illegal I think, but it's often the only way to get tickets for a sporting event at the last minute.

    Hmm well, you can buy online on different websites, but they are so expensive.
    In the mail I received from Roland Garros they mentioned that I could still buy tickets on fft.fr, but I have been looking and it seems like it´s not possible. I e-mailed them, so awaiting an answer. I guess there is nothing else to do than buying at the ticket office at the tournament site.

    You have to call the number provided in the email and give them reference number of your original order. As of yesterday they had tickets for June 4, 5 and 6.

    There were lots of scalpers there last year. Don't know how much they ask for the tickets though as I already had mine.
