This years French Open tennis tournament gets underway on the 27th of May and will finish the championship final on June 10th, at the famous Roland Garros venue in Paris which has deservedly established itself as the globe's greatest clay court competition. It has been running since 1891.

French Open Tennis Prediction - Rafael Nadal will turn 32 during this year’s French Open, but he is still the overwhelming favorite to win the event. Nadal has won 10 French Open titles, four more than any other player during the Open Era, and he is widely considered to be the best clay court player of all-time. He is currently the No. 1 ranked player in the world and has looked dominant once more heading into this event. It is tough to go against him considering his history at Roland-Garros, but there is a potential windfall if you do so considering his status as the heavy favorite. Continue...
Betting on the French Open fill with lot of exciting tennis action and is probably the most unpredictable of the grand slams, with many odds-on favorites losing in the opening rounds.
The championship is wide open compared to those of the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open because of the clay factor, although there are some obvious contenders.
Spaniard Rafael Nadal is the man to beat whenever it comes to playing on clay, winning 4 titles in a row from 2005 to 2008. In 2009, Roger Federer joined an exclusive company of tennis champions to win all four majors when he won first French Open title.
Roland Garros has been the Achilles heal of several top players over the years that were never able to conquer the clay at Roland Garros.
The red clay court at the French Open is unique among Grand Slam events.
It is a slower playing surface than grass or hardcourt, which makes success difficult for even the best tennis players, including past pros, like Pete Sampras and women's tennis players Lindsay Davenport and Martina Hingis.
These players have dominated other Grand Slam events, but struggled to win the French Open. Other players, however, have become "clay specialists" and managed to make careers out of their success at the French Open. Rafael Nadal would be a current example of such a specialist.

From its founding in 1891 through 1924, the French National Championship was exactly that - purely national, open only to members of French tennis clubs.
Largely because of the Davis Cup, though, tennis became a truly international sport in the early 1920s, and the French tournament was opened to other nations in 1925. Attendance increased immediately, and in 1928 a new stadium was built at Porte d'Auteuil, just outside Paris, to host the event.
It was named for a famous French flier, Roland Garros. The tournament became the French Open in 1968, when professional players were admitted for the first time.
The French Open is the only major tournament played on clay courts. As a result, it isn't generally considered quite as important as the other three majors.
Rafael Nadal has regained his French Open crown after two years in exile with a brutal 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 mauling of Swiss Stan Wawrinka to complete "La Decima".
This title, a record 10th at a single major in the professional era, was arguably the most impressive of his 15 victories, though, as it arrived three injury-plagued years after the last one when he beat Novak Djokovic there in 2014.
He also did it without dropping a set and conceding only 35 games in seven matches. Only Bjorn Borg, who conceded 32 on his way to the 1978 title, has been a more ruthless champion.
Third seed Wawrinka, having beaten world number one Andy Murray with a majestic display of firepower in a gruelling semi-final, arrived full of hope as, at 32, he tried to become the oldest French Open winner since Andres Gimeno in 1972.
