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 started on Sunday, May 28 and finished with the men’s final on Sunday, June 11
