History of Roland Garros

The French Open has a rich history dating back to 1891 when the tournament was first held. It was initially only open to French players, but in 1925, it became an international event. Today, the tournament is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious events in tennis, and it attracts top players from around the world.
The tournament is named after Roland Garros, a French aviator who was the first person to fly across the Mediterranean Sea. The Roland Garros Stadium, where the tournament is held, is named after him, and it has been the venue for the French Open since 1928.

Hosts many events

The French Open features both men's and women's singles and doubles competitions, as well as mixed doubles, wheelchair, and junior events. The tournament has total prize money of over €40 million, with the winners of the men's and women's singles events receiving over €2 million each.
The French Open is known for its unique red clay courts, which are made from crushed brick and can slow down the pace of the ball. This makes the tournament particularly challenging for players who are used to playing on faster surfaces such as grass or hard courts.
