“Notable Moments Throughout the Years at Roland-Garros”

Image
The Roland-Garros, also known as the French Open, is one out of four tennis Grand Slam tournaments and is one of the most awaited sports events of the year.  To welcome the start of this year’s French Open, here are the most notable events in the history of this tournament.
Also known as the French Open, the tournament began in 1891 and is played over two weeks at the Stade Roland-Garros in Paris, France. It’s held on a clay court — the only one to do so out of the four Grand Slams — resulting in a slow-playing surface. That, together with the seven rounds it plays out for a championship and best-of-five-set men’s singles, many consider it as one of the most physically challenging tournaments in the world of tennis.
