(i)

The FRENCH OPEN, also called ROLAND-GARROS (French: ), is a major tennis tournament held over two weeks between late May and early June at the Stade Roland-Garros in Paris
Paris
, France. Named after the French aviator Roland Garros , it is the premier clay court tennis championship event in the world and the second of four annual Grand Slam tournaments, the other three being the Australian Open , Wimbledon and the US Open . Roland Garros is currently the only major open (sport) held on clay, and it is the zenith of the spring clay court season. Because of the seven rounds needed for a championship, the slow-playing surface and the best-of-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.

HISTORY

Officially named in French Championnats Internationaux de France
France
de tennis and Tournoi de Roland-Garros (the "French International Championships of Tennis" or "Roland Garros Tournament" in English), the tournament is often referred to in English as the "French Open" and alternatively as "Roland Garros", which is the designation used by the tournament itself in all languages. French spelling rules dictate that in the name of a place or event named after a person, the elements of the name are joined together with a hyphen . Therefore, the names of the stadium and the tournament are hyphenated as Roland-Garros.

In 1891 the CHAMPIONNAT DE FRANCE, which is commonly referred to in English as the FRENCH CHAMPIONSHIPS, began. They were only open to tennis players who were members of French clubs. The first winner was a Briton—H. Briggs—who was a Paris
Paris
resident. The first women's singles tournament, with four entries, was held in 1897. The mixed doubles event was added in 1902 and the women's doubles in 1907. This "French club members only" tournament was played until 1924, using four different venues during that period:

* Île de Puteaux, in Puteaux
Puteaux
, played on sand laid out on a bed of rubble. * The Racing Club de France
France
(in the Bois de Boulogne
Bois de Boulogne
, Paris), played on clay . * For one year, 1909, it was played at the Société Athlétique de la Villa Primrose in Bordeaux
Bordeaux
, on clay. * Tennis
Tennis
Club de Paris
Paris
(club opened in 1895), at Auteuil , Paris, played on clay.

Another tournament, the World Hard Court Championships , is sometimes considered the precursor to the French Open
French Open
as it was open to international competitors. It was held on clay courts at Stade Français in Saint-Cloud
Saint-Cloud
from 1912 to 1914, then, after World War I
World War I
, was contested there again in 1920, 1921 and 1923, with the 1922 tournament held at Brussels
Brussels
, Belgium. Winners of this tournament included world no. 1's such as Tony Wilding from New Zealand
New Zealand
(1913, 1914) and Bill Tilden from the US (1921). In 1924 there was no World Hard Court Championships due to tennis being played at the Paris Olympic Games.

In 1925, the French Championships became open to all amateurs internationally and was designated a major championship by the ILTF. It was held at the Stade Français in Saint-Cloud
Saint-Cloud
(site of the previous World Hardcourt Championships) in 1925 and 1927, on clay courts. In 1926 the Racing Club de France
France
hosted the event in Paris, site of the previous French Championship, also on clay.

After the Mousquetaires or Philadelphia Four ( René Lacoste , Jean Borotra , Henri Cochet , and Jacques Brugnon ) won the Davis Cup
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
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
Court Philippe Chatrier
in 1988) hosted that Davis Cup
Davis Cup
challenge. In 1928, the French Internationals were moved there, and the event has been held there ever since.

During World War II the tournament was held from 1941 through 1945 on the same grounds but these editions are not recognized by the French governing body, Fédération Française de Tennis
Tennis
. In 1946 and 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. Court number 2 at the French Open.

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). In 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 traditional Benny Berthet exhibition day takes place, where the profits go to different charity associations. In March 2007, it was announced that the event would provide equal prize money for both men and women in all rounds for the first time. In 2010, it was announced that the French Open
French Open
was considering a move away from Roland Garros as part of a continuing rejuvenation of the tournament. Plans to renovate and expand Roland Garros have put aside any such consideration, and the tournament remains in its long time home.

SURFACE CHARACTERISTICS

Clay
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 servers and serve-and-volleyers, which makes it hard for these types of players to dominate on the surface. For example, Pete Sampras
Pete Sampras
, known for his huge serve and who won 14 Grand Slam titles, never won the French Open – his best result was reaching the semi-finals in 1996 . Other notable players who have won multiple Grand Slam events have never won the French Open, including John McEnroe
John McEnroe
, Frank Sedgman , John Newcombe , Venus Williams , Stefan Edberg , Boris Becker , Jimmy Connors , Louise Brough , and Virginia Wade ; McEnroe and Edberg lost their sole French Open
French Open
finals appearances in five sets.

On the other hand, players whose games are more suited to slower surfaces, such as Rafael Nadal
Rafael Nadal
, Björn Borg
Björn Borg
, Ivan Lendl , Mats Wilander , Justine Henin and Chris Evert
Chris Evert
, have found great success at this tournament. In the open era , the only male players who have won both the French Open
French Open
and Wimbledon , played on faster grass courts, are Rod Laver , Jan Kodeš , Björn Borg
Björn Borg
, Andre Agassi , Rafael Nadal , Novak Djokovic
Novak Djokovic
and Roger Federer
Roger Federer
. Borg's French Open—Wimbledon double was achieved three times consecutively (1978, 1979, 1980) and regarded by Wimbledon officials as "the most difficult double in tennis." The feat took 28 years to be repeated and was done 3 times consecutively, twice by Rafael Nadal
Rafael Nadal
(2008, 2010) and once by Roger Federer (2009).

EXPANSION VS. RELOCATION

From 2004–2008 there were off and on plans to build a covered stadium with a roof. There have also been various proposals to expand the facility or to move the French Open
French Open
to a completely new, 55-court venue outside of Paris
Paris
city limits. In 2011 it was decided to keep the tournament at Roland-Garros.

The expansion project calls for a new stadium to be built alongside the historical Auteuil\'s greenhouses and expansion of old stadiums and the tournament village. In May 2015, the city council voted against the expansion project, but on 9 June 2015 Paris
Paris
Mayor Anne Hidalgo announced the signing of the construction permits, with work scheduled to begin in September of that year and concluding in 2019. In December 2015, the Paris
Paris
Administrative Court once again halted renovation work. The French Tennis
Tennis
Federation is appealing the decision. Opponents however vow to continue to fight the expansion plans in the courts.

BALL BOYS AND BALL GIRLS

At the 2010 French Open
2010 French Open
there were 250 "ramasseurs de balles" which in English translates literally as "gatherers of balls". They are aged between 12 and 16 years old, and dress in matching shirts and shorts. The 250 ball boys and ball girls are chosen to take part in the French Open by an application and selection process, which in 2010 had approximately 2,500 applicants from across France. Upon selection the ball boys and ball girls participate in preparatory training in the weeks leading up to the French Open
French Open
to ensure that they are prepared for the day they set foot on the tennis court in front of a global audience.
