The experience of a lifetime at Roland Garros
Paris' acclaimed Roland Garros stadium was named for First World War flying ace and French national hero Roland Garros, and is one of the best equipped and most impressive tennis venues in the world. The Roland Garros has been home to the French Open since 1928, although the tournament has been played in one form or another since 1891. Originally only open to French participants, the Roland Garros now welcomes players from every corner of the globe.
This May all eyes are sure to be on the 'king of the red clay' Rafael Nadal as he defends his French Open title. Nadal has won the Roland Garros for an incredible 5 years in a row and has taken the title nine times in all, making him the most impressive and best clay court player that the sport has ever produced.
Women's Roland Garros champion Maria Sharapova will certainly be hoping to keep her crown, and you'll enjoy watching all the thrills and spills from the stadium or with the friendly Parisian crowd who come to watch the action on specially erected screens.
