Everyone needs an excuse to make vacation plans.  Whether it is for a celebration, a need to getaway, a honeymoon, or to attend a specific event, people need to find justification for pursuing the pleasant atmospheres of vacation trip.  The French Open Finals is exactly the type of reason to make a trip down to Paris and enjoy all the wonderful surroundings of France, in addition to witnessing one of the premier Grand Slam tennis events in the world!


The French Open is the only Grand Slam event played on clay, one of the more tricky surfaces of modern tennis.  Players slip and slide over the courts in a setting that has been dominated recently by Rafael Nadal.  Champion of 7 French Open titles, Nadal is the “king of clay” and is expected to make a fine run through this French Open, possible to the Finals.
