Roland Garros Brings Next Generation of Players and Products

The Roland Garros tennis complex is full of young, aspiring athletes this year. These "Rookies," so to speak, are the next generation of players. They are pros coming up in groups. Kind of like when Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, and Jim Courier gravitated towards center court all around the same time. On the women's side, we remember headliners like Martina Hingis, Steffi Graf, and Monica Seles. Each answered the call to stardom, winning numerous titles and even a Golden Slam (Steffi in 1988).

WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT FRENCH OPEN

The French Open is also known as Roland Garros and is named after a French WW1 Pilot who was the first man to fly over the Mediterranean Sea.

The first French Open was in 1891 and was played on sand.

For the first time in 2020 Wilson tennis balls were used and they were specifically made for clay court.

Before 1925 only members of the French tennis clubs were allowed to enter the tournament. After 1925 it became the French Open and non-French tennis club members were allowed as well.

The clay surface is actually made of white limestone covered with powdered red brick dust. About 44,000kg of crushed red brick is used each year.

The Coupe des Mousquetaires (The Musketeers' Cup) is kept in the stadium while the winner is given a smaller replica to bring home.

Rafa Nadal is known as the King of Clay because of his 13 French Open men's singles titles.

While red clay courts are used in the French Open, there are also green clay courts which are also known as Har-Tru and Rubico. These courts are made of crushed metabasalt instead of brick.

The French Open is the only grand slam that is played on clay courts. Since the ball bounces higher and slower than on other surfaces it makes the tournament the most physically demanding. This is why some top extremely talented players haven't been successful on the clay courts.

The only time the French Open has been canceled was from 1939-1945 for WW2. Other than that it has been held every year since 1891.
