French Open 2022

16 May 2022 - 5 Jun 2022

Roland Garros, also known as the French Open, is a Major tennis event held in late May each year at the Stade Roland-Garros in Paris, France. It is the only claycourt Grand Slam tournament, and the second of the four annual Major events on the calendar.


The tournament features men’s and women’s singles, men’s, women’s and mixed doubles, as well as junior championships, wheelchair, legends and exhibition events.

 

Roland Garros History


Known as Championnats Internationaux de France de tennis and Tournoi de Roland-Garros in French (English for the "French International Championships of Tennis" or "Roland Garros Tournament" in short), the tournament began in 1891. Back then, it was called the French Championships.


The winner that year was H Briggs who was British but resided in France. The very first edition of the Women’s Singles tournament took place in 1897 with Adine Masson being crowned champion. The Mixed Doubles event at Roland Garros first took place in 1902 while the Women’s Doubles started in 1907.


The French Open was first held at the Societe Sport de lle de Puteaux from 1891-1894 before being shifted to Tennis Club de Paris from 1895-1908. The competition was also held in Bordeaux in 1909 before shifting to the Racing Club de France from 1910-1924 and later 1926. The Stade Francais hosted the French Championships in 1925 and 1927.


Since 1928, the tournament has taken place at the Roland Garros Stadium. The French Open became the first Grand Slam tournament to go open, allowing both amateurs and professionals to compete. 


Rafael Nadal has won the French Open 13 times, more than any other player. Chris Evert has won the Women’s Singles title on 7 occasions, more than any other woman.


Roland Garros Past Champions


Last year, Novak Djokovic won the Men’s Singles title by beating Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final. Barbora Krejcikova won the Women’s Singles title by defeating Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the final.
