The transport area is also where A-list guests arrive and where players can leave tickets for their nearest and dearest, with 16 spots up for grabs on Court Philippe-Chatrier, 14 on Court Suzanne-Lenglen and 12 on Court Simonne-Mathieu.
Just a couple of streets away is Jean Bouin, the key practice site. Families chill out here with facilities like a nail and hair salon. A popular addition has been yoga sessions with an instructor putting on six classes a day.
Crucially, all of this information is available on the regenerated RG player’s app and everything is bookable within a few clicks.
For example, with the five racquet stringing points around the grounds, players can message to ask them to be returned to a certain station.
Food-wise they can order meals for times that suit their match, maybe a plate of pasta at 8:00 am if they’re first on.
Shopping in the RG boutique, concierge helping sort theatre tickets, restaurant recommendations, you name it, it’s on the app.
Next to the on-site concierge desk is a seamstress, on hand to stitch any logos onto match outfits or alter the length of items. It seems the players are looked after to the very last stitch.
The options are endless, the stress and concerns off court are diminished by the organisational excellence of Chevalier and her crew, but she wants the services to keep developing.
