The French Open, or the Roland Garros Open as it is better known, is the second Grand Slam of the year and the only Grand Slam played on clay courts. The tournament takes place every year in late May and it pretty much closes the clay season. Roland Garros is considered the most physically demanding tennis tournament, due to the surface (clay) and long rallies (the ball moves slower). The French Open is contested at the Stade Roland Garros, a big tennis facility in Paris, with 20 clay courts and three main stadiums (Court Philippe Chatrier, Court Suzanne Lenglen and Court 1). Court Philippe Chatrier is the main arena and one of the biggest tennis stadiums in the world, with 14,911 seats. Even though, it lacks a retractable roof or floodlights, which makes it one of the worst equipped tennis arenas in the world.

Roland Garros is one of the toughest tennis tournaments in the world: the clay surface makes it very physically demanding, the rallies last a lot longer than on hardcourts or grass because the ball bounces slower and in the deciding set there's no tiebreak. Roger Federer, who is probably the best tennis player ever, managed to win the tournament only once and also contested four more finals. The King of Clay, Rafael Nadal holds and impressive record of 10 titles and a 79-2 (win/loos) at the French Open. In the Open Era, he is followed only by Björn Borg with 6 titles. In the women's competition, Chris Evert holds the record for most titles (7), followed by Steffi Graf (6) and Justine Henin (4).
