The French Open (French: Les Internationaux de France de Roland Garros or Tournoi de Roland-Garros,
IPA: [ʁɔlɑ̃ ɡaʁɔs]) is a major tennis tournament held over two weeks between late May and early June in Paris,
France, at the Stade Roland Garros. It is the second of the Grand Slam tournaments on the annual tennis calendar and
the premier clay court tennis tournament in the world. Roland Garros is the only Grand Slam still held on clay and
ends the spring clay court season.
It is one of the most prestigious events in tennis,[3] and it has the widest worldwide broadcasting and audience of all
regular events in this sport.[4] [5] Because of the slow playing surface and the five-set men's singles matches without
a tiebreak in the final set, the event is widely considered to be the most physically demanding tennis tournament in
the world.[6] [7]
The reigning current champions in singles are Rafael Nadal for the men and Francesca Schiavone for the women at
the 2010 French Open.
French Open 2

History
Officially named in French Les Internationaux de France de
Roland Garros or Tournoi de Roland-Garros (the "French
Internationals of Roland Garros" or "Roland Garros Tournament"
in English), the tournament is often referred to as the "French
Open" and always as "Roland Garros" in French.
A French national tournament began in 1891, that was open only
to tennis players who were members of French clubs. It was
known as the Championnat de France International de Tennis,
which is commonly referred to in English as the French
Championships. The first women's tournament was held in 1897. Suzanne Lenglen Court at Roland Garros.
This 'French club members only' tournament was played until
1924. This tournament had three venues:

Île de Puteaux (all odd years from 1891 to 1907), played on sand laid out on a bed of rubble.
The Racing Club de France (all even years from 1892-1908, then 1910 to 1924), played on clay
For one year, 1909 it was played at the Société Athlétique de la Villa Primrose in Bordeaux, on clay.
Another tournament, the World Hard Court Championships held on Clay courts at Stade Français in Saint Cloud,
which was played from 1912 to 1923 (except the war years), is often considered as the precursor to Roland Garros as
it was open to international competitors. Winners of this tournament included world number #1's such as Tony
Wilding from New Zealand (1913, 1914) and Bill Tilden from the US (1921). In 1924 there was no World Hard
Court Championships due to the tennis being played at the Paris Olympic Games.
In 1925, the French Championships became open to all amateurs Internationally. This tournament was held at the
Stade Francais (site of the previous World Hardcourt Championships) in 1925 & 1927, on clay. In 1926 the Racing
Club de France hosted the event, again on clay. In 1928, the Roland Garros stadium was opened and the event has
been held there ever since.[8] After the Mousquetaires or Philadelphia Four (René Lacoste, Jean Borotra, Henri
Cochet, and Jacques Brugnon) won the Davis Cup on American soil in 1927, the French decided to defend the cup in
1928 at a new tennis stadium at Porte d’Auteuil. The Stade de France had offered the tennis authorities three
hectares of land with the condition that the new stadium must be named after the World War I pilot, Roland Garros.
The new Stade de Roland Garros, and its Center Court, which was named Court Philippe Chatrier in 1988, hosted
that Davis Cup challenge.
From 1945 through 1947, the French Championships were held after Wimbledon, making it the third Grand Slam
event of the year.
In 1968, the French Championships became the first Grand Slam tournament to go open, allowing both amateurs and
professionals to compete.[8]
French Open 3

Since 1981, new prizes have been presented: the Prix Orange (for
the player demonstrating the best sportsmanship and cooperative
attitude with the press), the Prix Citron (for the player with the
strongest character and personality) and the Prix Bourgeon (for the
tennis player revelation of the year).
Another novelty, since 2006 the tournament has begun on a
Sunday, featuring 12 singles matches played on the three main
courts.
Additionally, on the eve of the tournament's opening, the
Court number 2 at the French Open. traditional Benny Berthet exhibition day takes place, where the
profits go to different charity associations.

In March 2007, it was announced that the event will provide equal prize money for both men and women in all
rounds for the first time ever.[9] In 2010, it was announced that the French Open was considering a move away from
Roland Garros as part of a continuing rejuvenation of the tournament.[10]

Surface characteristics
Clay courts slow down the ball and produce a high bounce when compared to grass courts or hard courts. For this
reason, clay courts take away some of the advantages of big serves and serve-and-volleyers, which makes it hard for
serve based players to dominate on the surface. For example, Pete Sampras, a player known for his huge serve, never
won the French Open (nor even advanced to the final) in his entire career. Many players who have won multiple
Grand Slam events have never won the French Open, including John McEnroe, Venus Williams, Stefan Edberg,
Boris Becker, Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, and Maria Sharapova. Andy Roddick (who holds the record for
fastest serve in the history of professional tennis) never advanced past the fourth round.
On the other hand, players whose games are more suited to slower surfaces, such as Björn Borg, Ivan Lendl, Rafael
Nadal, and Mats Wilander, and on the women's side, Justine Henin have found great success at this tournament. In
the open era, the only male players who have won both the French Open and Wimbledon, played on faster grass
courts, are Rod Laver, Jan Kodeš, Björn Borg, Andre Agassi, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.

Expansion vs. Relocation


In 2009 the Fédération Française de Tennis (FFT) announced that it had determined that the French Open's venue
had become inadequate, compared to other major tennis tournament facilities. As a result, it had commissioned the
French architect Marc Mimram (designer of the Passerelle des Deux Rives footbridge across the Rhine River in
Strasbourg[11] ) to design a significant expansion of Stade Roland Garros. On the current property, the proposal calls
for the addition of lights and a roof over Court Philippe Chatrier. At the nearby Georges Hébert municipal recreation
area, east of Roland Garros at Porte d'Auteuil, a fourth stadium will be built, with a retractable roof and 14,600
seating capacity, along with two smaller courts with seating for 1,500 and 750.[12]
In 2010, faced with opposition to the proposed expansion from factions within the Paris City Council, the FFT
announced it is considering an alternate plan to move the French Open to a completely new, 55-court venue outside
of Paris city limits. Three sites reportedly being considered are Marne-le-Vallée (site of the Euro Disney resort), the
northern Paris suburb of Gonesse, and a vacant army base near Versailles.[13] Amid charges of bluffing and
brinkmanship, a spokesman explained that Roland Garros is less than half the size of other Grand Slam venues,
leaving the FFT with only two viable options: expansion of the existing facility or relocation of the event.[14]
