The French Open, commonly known as Roland-Garros, is a tennis tournament held each year close to May at the Stade Roland-Garros in Paris, France. French Open is definitely one of the most awaited tennis events of the year as it is the second Grand slam of the year as well as the only Grand slam played on clay court. 

The tournament was founded 129 years ago in 1891, and the 2022 Roland-Garros will be the 125th edition of the French Open. Women’s singles were introduced to the tournament in 1897 with only four entries, and the mixed doubles event was included since 1902 and the women’s doubles in 1907.

The French Open is believed to be one of the toughest grand slams to conquer as the best of five sets format on a clay court makes the competition very tiring, and only the fittest could triumph.
