A grounds pass gets you in everywhere, except for AA Stadium. That means all the outside courts, the Grandstand, and Louis Armstrong. Plus the recently built-up Court 17. All seats are first-come, first-serve.
They'll put some big names on Armstrong, but the Grandstand (to me) provides for a richer experience. Less seats, more intimate.
I'll say you just get lucky with who's practicing. Life is like a box of chocolates, no?
