French Open Previews, Predictions & Tips


French Open


The French Open is a major tennis tournament held over two weeks between May and June at the Stade Roland-Garros in Paris, France. One of the four tennis Grand Slams, the French Open is widely regarded as the premier clay court tennis championship event in the world.

The tournament dates back to 1891 and is considered a highlight of the tour. Clay courts produce a different style of tennis when compared to grass courts or hard courts, slowing down the ball and producing a high bounce which makes it difficult for big servers and serve-and-volleyers.

Many former top tennis players never won the French Open including Pete Sampras, John McEnroe, John Newcombe, Stefan Edberg, Boris Becker and Venus Williams. On the other hand, some players have dominated at Roland-Garros such as Rafael Nadal, Björn Borg, Ivan Lendl, Justine Henin and Chris Evert.

Rafael Nadal has dominated the tournament in recent years, winning 10 of the past 13 French Open men's singles titles and the current champion after defeating Stan Wawrinka in the 2017 final. Latvia’s Jeļena Ostapenko is the current French Open women's singles champion after defeating Simona Halep in the 2017 final.
