Buying tickets questions
Hey everyone, I have a few questions regarding buying tennis tickets for the grand slam events. Say I want to go to the 2013 French Open and I want to make sure I see a first round Federer match. I guess I would have a couple options (buy all first round tickets at court Philippe Chatrier and hope he plays there, or maybe go there and buy one on the day)? The problems are that buying every first round ticket would be expensive, or I'd have to somehow know which court exactly he's playing and what time that day and hope I can get a ticket on that day. It would just be nice to pay for 1 ticket knowing he's playing in it and that's that (but obviously that's not possible haha).
Basically just could you recommend what's the best way to go about my situation. I want to see Federer in a first round match, the cheapest and most convenient way possible haha. Thanks everyone!! -Will

First of all the first round can take up to 3 days to play - the schedule is not released until after the qualies so you really can't know when any one player will play until the day before - Fed has played on on Lenglen as well so you have 2 courts to consider.

You cannot by sameday tickets - so once the FFT opens up the sales of tickets to the general public you could try and get a seat - to be honest the supply is pretty bad, Your best bet would be to use the VIAGOGO resale option where the FFT members sell off extra tickets -

Thanks for your response gavna! Ahh that's true, he has played on Lenglen and at Wimbledon I remember court #1 in the first round as well, so yeah multiple courts is another thing to think about. I'll try that VIAGOGO for sure and hope for the best, thanks!
