Roland Garros - The French Open

About Roland Garros - The French Open

Winning the French Open is a player dream as it embodies the spirit of Tennis itself. The typical red clay surface makes this tournament the most physical of all Grand Slams.

In 2021 it was the 125th edition of the French Open and the second Grand Slam event of 2021. The main singles draws included 16 qualifiers for men and 16 for women out of 128 players in each draw, the last Grand Slam to still have 128 women qualifiers instead of 96 in line with the other three majors.

Novak Djokovic won the men's singles title over Stefanos Tsitsipas in the final, marking his 19th Grand Slam singles title and making him the first male player to win the double career Grand Slam in the Open Era. Barbora Krejcikova won the women's singles title over Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the final, claiming her maiden Grand Slam singles title. This was the first time in French Open history that both singles victors were from Slavic-speaking nations, namely Serbia and the Czech Republic.

This was the first edition of the event to have formal night sessions in the schedule, joining a practice already established at the Australian Open and US Open, with one match having a 21:00 local time start time each day.

No fewer than 7 courts (Philippe Chatrier, Suzanne Lenglen, Court No 1,2,7,3,6) will be available for live HD transmission to bring you one of the most important sports events of the year on your screens!
