General Information


The tournament was first held in 1891 as a one-day national championship. Only French tennis players and members of French tennis clubs were allowed to participate. The first winner of the Stade Français was an Englishman; history has only preserved his name: H. Briggs. Briggs. The first winner of the women's tournament was Adin Masson in 1897. However, the tournament was not very popular in its early years, due to its national ranking - the best players in the world were not allowed to participate. The situation changed when the championship was granted international status in 1925.

The reopening of the tournament after the First World War marked the heyday of French tennis. Suzanne Lenglen, who had won the tournament even before the war at the age of 15, dominated women's tennis and won six of the seven championships between 1920 and 1926.

With the advent of the Open Era in 1968, professional tennis players gained the right to play in the tournament on an equal footing with amateurs. Australian Ken Rosewall became the first winner of the New Era Championship, receiving 15,000 francs in prize money. Nancy Ritchie won the women's championship.


Courts


The construction of the Roland Garros tennis arena was a direct result of the 1927 Davis Cup victory of the "four musketeers" - Jacques Brunion, Jean Borotard, Henri Cochet and René Lacoste. The French won the Cup on the road against the United States, and the return meeting the following year was to be held in France. However, Paris at the time did not have tennis stadiums of sufficient capacity to host such a major event. Interestingly, before the new arena was built, the French tournament was held at the Stade Français club on grass courts.

Through the joint efforts of the Stade Français club and the government, 3 hectares of land nearby Porte d'Auteuil were vacated. Under the club's terms, the new arena was named after former club member, French hero, pioneering aviator and military aviator Roland Garros (1888-1918), who was the first man to fly non-stop across the Mediterranean Sea and who died just five weeks before the end of World War I.

The Roland Garros stadiums are one of the largest and most prestigious tennis arenas in the world.

Since its construction, Roland Garros has undergone repeated changes and expansions as the growing needs of tennis demanded. Many consider Roland Garros the birthplace of the game on clay courts.

The center court of the tennis complex was built in 1928 and seats 15,000 spectators. In 2001 it was named after the former president of the French Tennis Federation Philippe Chatrier. The second most famous court was named after the legendary French tennis player Suzanne Lenglen; it seats 10,000 spectators. Court No. 1, seating 3,700 spectators.

During the tournament matches are free to watch: a huge screen is installed on the square in front of the City Hall in Paris, where tennis is shown live. Spectators are seated on a special platform resembling a court, on the pavement, on benches and on the fence.
