The French Open, also called the Roland Garros (a French pilot who fought in World War I), was established in 1891 and is one of the four tennis majors. Each year, the event is held in Paris's Stade Roland Garros between late May and early June.


The French Open is considered to be the hardest major due to the nature of the surface. The speed of outdoor clay courts is slower and the ball bounces higher compared to grass and hard courts.


Tennis professionals Max Mirnyo and Daniel Nestor have won the most French Open men's doubles titles, four each in 2005, 2006, 2011, 2012, and 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012. They are followed in the Open Era by Anders Järryd, Paul Haarhuis, and Yevgeny Kafelnikov, who have each won three.
