How to buy last minute Roland Garros tickets

Roland Garros 2017 starts in a little over two weeks time; you planned a Paris trip but still not have your Roland Garros tickets? Don’t worry, it’s not too late, you have 3 ways to buy tickets:

On site

Tickets for qualifiers (from May 22 to 26) are on sale on site. Tickets give access to the entire public area within the stadium. Courts 6 to 18 have unreserved seating and are open to all. Court Suzanne Lenglen is also open to all spectators to watch players from the main draw practising before the tournament starts.

Roland Garros website

Qualifying days

Tickets for qualifiers are also on sale on line.

General public tickets

Extra tickets were put on sale on Wednesday May 10, so tickets are still available: there are a lot of tickets left for the women’s semifinals for example.

Resale tickets

From April 13, people that for some reason are not able to attend the event put their tickets up for sale on Roland Garros website. That means you can buy unwanted tickets up until the day of the event, depending on their availability. The resale ticket is integrated to Roland Garros website, so it’s completely secure and legal.

Since 2016, Viagogo is no longer in partnership with Roland Garros, the tickets on sale on this website are sold illegally and without any guarantee.

Two advices:
– if you manage to get outside court tickets: from 5pm some Show Courts ticket holders leave the stadium, so stay near an exit gate and ask them – gently – their ticket.
– if you can’t get those Court Chatrier tickets you really wanted, buy some Suzanne Lenglen tickets and once inside the grounds, try to swap tickets with a Court Central ticket holder.

Evening visitors

Buy Evening Visitors tickets from 28 May to 6 June and get access to outside courts from 5.30pm for only €15. You have to book your tickets online from 5 pm on the evening before the day you wish to attend.

Official agencies

If you have deep pockets, official agencies propose VIP tickets with or without accomodations. Check out the complete list here.

Do not purchase tickets through unofficial websites or agencies: they sell tickets without the agreement of the French Tennis Federation and do not guarantee you official tickets. You’ve been warned…

If you have any question, feel free to leave a comment below, I’ll do my best to reply.

Pablo Carreno Busta, winner of the Estoril Open 2017

Finalist last year, Pablo Carreno Busta defeated Gilles Muller in straight sets 6-2 7-6 to win his third career title.

“It’s my first title on clay, so I’m really happy,” said Carreno Busta. “It wasn’t an easy match today because of his serve and also the volley, but I was confident with my serve. He served better in the second set, but I played better in the tie-break.”

The number one seed didn’t drop a set all week and had convincing wins over Tommy Robredo, defending champion Nicolas Almagro, and David Ferrer. With this victory, Pablo makes his return to the top 20, climbing three positions to number 18 in the world.

Gilles Muller who captured his first ATP title earlier this year in Sydney, was also pleased with his performance:

“My performance was fine in the second set, but I had a really tough time getting into the match in the first set. He was putting pressure on me and not missing many balls,” said Muller. “I think I could have played better, but he was just too good.”

US Open – 28 August to 10 September 2017

Hot, loud, electric, the US Open is a tournament like no other, and has been the scene of some of the craziest tennis matches, like the infamous McEnroe-Nastase in 1979, or Jimmy Connors’ run to the semifinals in 1991.
The Billie Jean King center, home of the US Open, has transformed a lot in the recent years: Arthur Ashe Stadium now has an amazing retractable roof, the new Grandstand debuted last year, and 10 outside courts were renovated.

The courts

Arthur Ashe stadium

Arthur Ashe stadium

With a capacity of 23,771 seats, the Arthur Ashe Stadium is the largest tennis facility in the world. With the retractable roof added last year, there’s no risk anymore to have to play the men’s final on a Monday or Tuesday!
Check out Arthur Ashe’s seating chart.

Louis Armstrong

The old Louis Armstrong Stadium has been demolished and will be replaced by a temporary stadium seating 8,800 spectators. The temporary stadium will be removed next year and the new Louis Armstrong Stadium, with a retractable roof, will open. Check out Louis Armstrong Stadium update.

Grandstand

The new Grandstand, a 8,125 seat stadium, which opened in 2016, is the third largest stadium in the center, and replaces the Old Grandstand, which will be torn down when Louis Armstrong Stadium is replaced in 2018.
