Best Way to Get Two Single Day-Grounds, French Open (tennis) Tickets?

We are going to be in Paris and would like to get 2 grounds tickets on Saturday June 2 (third round). I see some USA internet ticket sellers that seem to sell these individual tickets but I am wondering if I can wait until we get to Paris and buy them there. Are there ways to get tickets more cheaply there? We will have internet/printer access. Thanks!

I don't have any suggestions, just wanted to relay our experience 10 years ago with the French Open. We are lucky that DH's father lives in Paris within walking distance of Rolland Garros. He ordered tickets in advance by mail for us - as I recall it was the only way then to get order tickets for a reasonable amount of money. (I looked at the US ticket seller website that the French Open website directs you to and the tickets are expensive and sold out!) It was a fun experience - I wish you the best in getting tickets!

Thanks Iowamom - I guess I may just risk it on one of the US ticket sites.

Hi. We are going Qualifying week and have bought our tickets through the French Open website. You could wait until the day of however, the lineups will be really long and you may not get tickets.

Go to www.fft-tickets.com which is the only legitimate website for selling tickets other than the US brokers which are very expensive. We got a 2-day pack for Qualifying week. Just choose what you want and the tickets will come to your email. Print them off and bring with you as this e-ticket is what you will have to scan when you arrive at the grounds.
