The French Open, also called Roland-Garros, is held over two weeks at the Stade Roland-Garros in Paris, France, beginning in late May each year. The venue is named after the French aviator Roland Garros. It is the premier clay court tennis championship tournament in the world and the second of the four annual Grand Slam tournaments. The French Open is currently the only Grand Slam tournament held on clay, and it is the conclusion of the spring clay court season. Before 1975, the French Open was the lone non-grass major tournament. Between the seven rounds needed for a championship, the slow-playing surface and the best-of-five-set men’s singles matches, the event is widely considered to be the most physically demanding tennis tournament in the world.
The 2020 French Open was the 124th edition of the French Open and was held at Stade Roland Garros in Paris. It was also be the first year in which there was a retractable roof on the French tennis courts, after construction was completed on Court Phillipe Chatrier in late 2019, with plans in place to also have a roof on Court Suzanne Lenglen by 2023. Additionally, it was also the first year in which night tennis was possible, as floodlights will be in operation on the twelve courts.
