Philippe Chatrier reno looking good

The French Open, which begins in less than a month, will be so new-and-improved it could be a shock.

In addition to the charming new “greenhouse” court, Simonne-Mathieu, the revamping of venerable Court Philippe-Chatrier looks amazing. There will be a retractable roof for 2020.

If you’re still thinking of tickets, the first four days are already sold out. And the rest of the first week looks … darn expensive because the grounds passes and Simonne-Mathieu tix are gone. 

The “last-minute ticket sale” opens May 7 at 10 a.m., Paris time.
