The French Open at Stade Roland Garros
The French Open runs each year at Stade Roland Garros and follows the Australian Open as the second Grand Slam event for the year. Many consider Roland Garros the most demanding of the four Grand Slam events, as the playing surface consists of clay and there is no tiebreak option for the final sets of men's singles.
The modern French Open was first held in 1925 and the tournament came to Stade Roland Garros, named after a World War I hero, in 1928. In 1968, the French Open began to allow both amateurs and professionals to compete in the tourney.
Both men and women compete over the two weeks of Roland Garros, working their way through seven challenging rounds.
