French Open Ticket Preview: Can Novak Djokovic Win Career Grand Slam?

Less than a week away, the tennis season’s second Grand Slam tournament will be as up for grabs as it’s been in recent memory. The usual attempted conquest of knocking off clay-court mastermind Rafael Nadal is more realistic than ever with the Spaniard not at the form tennis fans have come to expect.
The nine-time French Open champion is obviously still a contender—after all, he is gunning for his sixth consecutive French Open title—but an injury forced him to miss most of the second half of last season and he has yet to find his groove. His recent showing means for the first time in a very long time, the Spaniard will not start as the odds-on favorite to win, a title that now belongs to the world’s No. 1-ranked player, Novak Djokovic.
With the championship up for grabs, ticket demand is up and prices will continue to rise if the favorites advance deep in the tournament. According to Championship Tennis Tours, the premier marketplace for French Open tickets, only the first day’s action has tickets for under $300. Tickets to Center Court start at $295 on May 24th, but climb up to $495 and $475 for the next two days, respectively.
