The French Open is a major tennis tournament held over two weeks between late May and early June in Paris, France, at the Roland Garros Stadium. It is one of the most prestigious events in tennis, and the most watched French event in the world. Because of the clay surface and 5-set style matches it is considered to be the most physically demanding event in all of Tennis. It is the premier clay court tennis tournament in the world and the second of the four annual Grand Slam tournaments. Roland Garros is the only Grand Slam held on clay and ends the spring clay court season.
In 1968, the French Championships became the first Grand Slam tournament to go open, allowing both amateurs and professionals to compete. Since 1981, new prizes have been presented: the Prix Orange (for the player demonstrating the best sportsmanship and cooperative attitude with the press), the Prix Citron (for the player with the strongest character and personality) and the Prix Bourgeon (for the tennis player revelation of the year). In another novelty, since 2006 the tournament has begun on a Sunday, featuring 12 singles matches played on the three main courts. Additionally, on the eve of the tournament's opening, the traditional Benny Berthet exhibition day takes place, where the profits go to different charity associations.
