The French Open is one of the four historic Grand Slam tennis events, and is the only one to be played on clay courts.  Rafael Nadal has been dominant by winning the French Open 7 times.  Women’s Singles fans will delight in watching Serena Williams continue her incredible tennis career.  She has won the French Open just once but is currently the world’s number 1 woman and is a strong contender.

But the tournament won’t be won over Memorial Day and actually extends for several weeks into early June.  Nevertheless, the early round action will give fans a great window to view the many tennis competitors, and it also enables fans to catch a glimpse of tennis’ many stars and up and coming players like Sloane Stephens.
