2017 French Open

Novak Djokovic French Open 2016 TennisThe French Open is the second Grand Slam on the tennis calendar, and the only one to be played on a clay surface.

The event is held in Paris from late May to early June.

Officially known in French as ‘Les internationaux de France de Roland-Garros’ or ‘Tournoi de Roland-Garros’, the Open is named after the great French aviator, Roland Garros.

Being the only Grand Slam tournament played on clay, a much slower surface than the grass or hard courts used at the other three Slams, means the five-set men’s singles matches (without a tiebreak in the fifth set), makes for the most physically demanding tennis on the calendar.

The 2017 French Open begins on Sunday, May 28 and concludes on Sunday, June 11
