History of Roland Garros:

'Roland Garros' is named after a French fighter pilot, Roland Georges Garros, who was a French war hero during the First World War. He holds the legacy as one of the finest French pilots to roam the skies and to fight in WW1. A lot of confusion arises when people  hear the story of the man behind the name of one of the greatest tennis tournaments in the world. Although he was a sports enthusiast, he didn't play tennis. Why would the French name such a grand competition after a man with relatively no interest in tennis?

Well, when the French won the Davis Cup, they wanted to host their defence in France but had no national stadium to represent tennis. As part of the deal for the land to build the stadium, they had to name the stadium after a WW1 soldier. The name that they chose was Roland Garros and it has stayed that way ever since.

Roland Garros had its first competition in 1891. At that time it was  open to French tennis players and tennis players that were part of French clubs. Now, Roland Garros is open to players all over the world and is considered the best clay tournament in the world

The tournament is one of the most physically demanding competitions in the world. Players face slower terrain and longer matches, leading to vast surprises in the competition.

Types of events:

Roland Garros has five different main events: Men and Women’s singles, Men and Women’s doubles, mixed doubles with extra tournaments held for junior, senior and wheelchair players.

Location & Stadiums of Roland Garros:

Built in 1928 as Roland Garros's main venue, Court Philippe Chatrier has a seating capacity of 14,840 spectators. There are four main spectator grandstands, named after les Quatre Mousquetaires ("Four Musketeers”). These are four of France’s greatest  tennis men that dominated men’s tennis in the 1920s and 30s. These include: Jacques "Toto" Brugnon, Jean Borotra (the "Bouncing Basque"), Henri Cochet (the "Magician"), and René Lacoste (the “Crocodile”).

Built in 1994, Court Suzanne Lenglen is the secondary stadium with a capacity of 10,068 spectators. Named after Suzanne Lenglen who is considered to be the first true star of women’s tennis. She won 31 major tournaments (1914-1926) and gained the nicknames La Divine ("Divine One") and La Grand Dame ("Great Lady") of French tennis.

Built in 1980, Court No. 1 or the ‘Bullring’ has a small capacity of 3,800 seats. It is a favourite among tennis fans because of its small size and the feeling of being closer to the action.

Court Surface:

Roland Garros is played on red clay courts. The courts are composed of crush gravel and crushed white limestone. The red colour comes from red brick dust which is powdered on top. Clay slows down the ball and produces a high bounce when compared to grass courts or hard courts. This type of court is favoured by Spaniards and South-Americans who grew up on and adapted to red dirt.

Former Winners:

In the last decade, Rafael Nadal has dominated the Roland Garros Men’s Singles who has won the greatest number of titles(10). Other notable winners include tennis greats like Rene Lacoste, Henri Cochet, Bjorn Borg and Chris Evert.
