French Open Tennis History


The French Open dates back to 1891 and is considered a highlight of the tennis tour. Originally only open to tennis players who were members of French clubs, the ‘Championnat de France’ remained that way 1924. 

A different tournament called the World Hard Court Championships was contested on clay courts at Stade Français in Saint-Cloud from 1912 to 1914 and in 1920, 1921 and 1923. In 1925 the French Championships was open to international amateurs and held at the Stade Français. 

The tournament changed drastically when France won the Davis Cup in America in 1927 with the famous quarter of René Lacoste, Jean Borotra, Henri Cochet, and Jacques Brugnon who were known as the ‘Philadelphia Four’.

Deciding to defend the Davis Cup at home, the French decided to build a new tennis stadium in the Porte d'Auteuil region of Paris. Three hectares of land was offered by the Stade de France with the Stade de Roland Garros built and names after aviation pioneer and World War I pilot Roland Garros. 

In 1928 the French Internationals tennis tournament was moved to Roland Garros where it has been held ever since. The tournaments held from 1941-1945 during World War II were not recognised by the French governing body.

The French Championships were held after Wimbledon in 1946 and 1947. In 1968 the tournament became the first Grand Slam to become open which allowed amateurs and professionals to compete.

Various player awards were introduced in 1981 such as the Prix Orange, the Prix Citron and the Prix Bourgeon. In 2007 the French Open decided to distribute prize money equally for men and women for the first time.

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.

The 2020 French Open was originally scheduled to start on May 24th and finish on June 7th, but was moved to be held from 20 September to 4 October 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 2020 French Open will be the first year in which there is a retractable roof on the French tennis courts after construction was completed on court Phillipe-Chatrier. It will also be the first year when poor light will not stop play with floodlights in operation on the four main stadium courts.
