French Open Tennis 2016 Championships website with news and information about the world famous tennis tournament held at the Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France each year. The site has lots of information including dates, schedule, results and winners.
The French Open, often referred to as "Roland Garros" (French: Les internationaux de France de Roland-Garros or Tournoi de Roland-Garros), after the famous French aviator, is a major tennis tournament held over two weeks between late May and early June in Paris, France, at the Stade Roland Garros. It is the premier clay court tennis tournament in the world and the second of the four annual Grand Slam tournaments – the other three are the Australian Open, US Open and Wimbledon. Roland Garros is the only major tournament held on clay and ends the spring clay court season.
It is one of the largest events in tennis and the most watched French event in the world. Because of the slow playing surface and the five-set men's singles matches without a tiebreak in the final set, the event is widely considered to be the most physically demanding tennis tournament in the world.
