The French Open is one of the four jewels in the crown of the tennis calendar. Alongside Wimbledon, the Australian Open, and the US Open, the French Open serves as one of the four slams for players from the ATP and WTA. The French Open provides the ultimate clay court challenge, with players instantly becoming legends of the game upon winning the event. For some, this is the biggest event of the year.
The tournament has been held at the famous Roland Garros courts since 1928, having first been played at the Stade Francais club since 1891. Over the years, there have been some truly memorable contests here, and the courts have been graced by the stars of tennis from pretty much every era.
The success of this event shows no signs of slowing down, and the passion and excitement inspired by the French Open is only rivalled by the other three slams. Every big-name player who is fit and able to play here will do so, and year-in-year-out, we can fully anticipate a tremendous fortnight of tennis at Roland Garros.
