I don't think you can upgrade a Hisense Arena ticket to a RLA. I had a look at the FAQ on the AO website & when it said you cannot upgrade a Ground Pass to a RLA (or something along the lines of that), it maybe the same for Hisense Arena tickets.

That's all I know.

But I remember this year I actually tried to get one of my ground passes upgraded for a RLA ticket, could do it but that RLA session was sold out. So I don't understand why they are not allowing RLA upgrades :shrug:

They might be offering but didnt mention, i cant find an email or phone number to ring and ask anywhere! its annoying cos i just wanted hisense and then if masha or dokic (if she gets in) are playing id just upgrade for that day to RLA :tears:

I guess you could ring up or send an email to Ticketek.

hey guys. i have been to the australian open the past 4 years and usually i just hunt for my favourite on the outside courts to try to find them.
i know its not available on the australian open website but does anyone know where i can get the practice court schedule like the day before or the day of the tournament?
thanks thnks

Rafito.

They never give anyone the practise court schedule, but you can try and find a nice security guard and they will sometimes show you. Last year this lady security guard gave a few of us a look at the practise schedule she was so nice!

oh thanks Rafito!
yeah a friend told me that earlier. so i just ask the guys in yellow shirts?
haha. but i have been the past 4 years looking for ana ivanovic and i really want to see her!
what if they dont tell me...

Rafito.
Dec 17th, 2010, 05:27 AM
Just keep asking the security in the yellow shirts but generally ask the women as they are much more willing and if you have to just keep nagging them :lol:
