I can't go to the whole tournament. What sessions would people recommend I buy tickets for?

Depends on who you want to see. Early in the week for a bunch of matches with a lot of players practicing. Later in the week, Friday or Saturday, if you want to see top players playing each other.

Early in the week, there are lots of matches in the outer courts. Based on my experience last year, you may not have to pay to watch those matches. I went to the Tuesday day session last year and got a ticket to the stadium because I wanted to see Daniela Hantuchova. When I went to the outer courts, nobody asked to see my ticket.
My advice, if there is someone in particular you want to see, check the website early in the morning and see if they're playing. You can probably get a ticket at the window on the same day for a day session. If you just want to see a bunch of matches, go early in the week, because by Thursday last year, all the action was inside the stadium.
