The French Open, or as it is known in France, Tournoi de Roland-Garros, is a major tennis tournament held in Paris, France in may and June each year. The French Open is the second of the so-called Grand Slam tournaments held each year. The other Grand Slams include the Australian Open, Wimbledon, and U.S. Open. The event was first played in 1891 as a French national tournament on grass. The surface would be changed to red clay in 1912.

2016 French Open Preview
The 2015 French Open comes through with pretty much the same storyline as the last decade of tennis, can anyone beat Rafael Nadal on clay? The Spanish Phenom is looking to win a record 10th French Open title, and a victory in the 2015 French Open would be a 6th straight for Nadal. No player has ever dominated a tournament to the same extent as Nadal has in the French Open, and he will once again be the heavy favorite to take the 2015 French Open title. If anyone can challenge the Spaniard it will be Novak Djokovic, who lost to Nadal in the 2012 and 2014 French Open finals. Throw in Roger Federer, and Andy Murray, and the 2015 French Open looks to be as good as it has ever been.
