Roland Garros 2019
Roland Garros, better known as the French Open, is one of the most exciting tennis tournaments in the World. Officially, Roland Garros is one of four annual Grand Slams, which includes the US Open, the Australian Open and the Wimbledon Championships. The French Tournament is coming up at the end of May and promises to be a true spectacle of sporting brilliance and a great opportunity of punters to get in on the betting action.
About the French Open
The origins of Roland Garros date back to 1891 when the first French tournament was played. It wasn’t until 1925 though when the event opened its doors to amateur and professional players from around the globe. Today it is one of the highlights of tennis calendar and one of the most technically difficult events for the players. The French Open is the only Grand Slam to be played on clay. The clay surface slows down the ball, which makes it difficult for bigger players to out-pace their opponents. Ball placement and strategy plays more of a role, which is why certain players have dominated the tournament.
