The French Open,[a][b] known originally as the Internationaux de France,[1] is an annual tennis tournament created in 1891 and played on outdoor red clay courts at the Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France.[2] The women's singles event began in 1897.[3]

The French Open is played during two weeks in late May and early June, and has been chronologically the second of the four Grand Slam tournaments of the tennis season since 1987. The event was not held from 1915 to 1919 because of World War I, and after a one year lapse in 1940, was unofficially held from 1941 to 1944 because of World War II.[4] The national body that organizes this event is the French Tennis Federation (FFT).

The Racing Club de France and the Stade Français of Paris alternated hosting the event before the competition was moved in 1928 to the newly built Stade Roland Garros, where it has been played since. The tournament was reserved for members of French tennis clubs until the first edition open to international players took place in 1925.[5] From 1941 to 1944, the Vichy regime requisitioned the site and held a Tournoi de France, for French players only, won two times by Alice Weiwers and once by Simone Iribarne Lafargue and Raymonde Jones Veber. Those editions are not counted by the FFT in the tournament's history.[4]

The women's singles rules have undergone several changes since the first edition. The event has always been contested in a knockout format. Records show that matches have always been played as the best-of-three sets format. The lingering death best-of-twelve points tie-break was introduced in 1973 for the first two sets.[6]

The champion receives a miniature replica of the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen (Suzanne Lenglen Cup), named after Suzanne Lenglen. In 2010, the winner received prize money of 1,120,000.[7]

In the French National Championship, which was when the tournament was reserved to members of French tennis clubs and French nationals, Adine Masson (1897–1899, 1902–1903) holds the record for most titles in women's singles with five victories. The record for most consecutive titles is four by Jeanne Matthey (1909–1912) and Lenglen (1920–1923), all of whose titles came during the club-members-only era.

In the French International Championships, that came after the tournament opened to international competitors but before the open era, Helen Wills Moody (1928–1930, 1932) holds the record for most titles at four. The record for most consecutive titles during this period is three by Wills Moody (1928–1930) and Hilde Krahwinkel Sperling (1935–1937).[4][6]

During the French Open, since the inclusion of the professional tennis players, the record for most titles is held by Chris Evert with seven (1974–1975, 1979–1980, 1983, 1985–1986). The record for most consecutive titles during the open era is three by Monica Seles (1990–1992) and Justine Henin (2005–2007).[4][6]

This event has been won without losing a set in the open era by the Evonne Goolagong Cawley in 1971, Billie Jean King in 1972, Evert in 1974, Steffi Graf in 1988, Arantxa Sánchez Vicario in 1994, and Henin in 2006 and 2007.

  • a Known as the Les Championnats de France (1891–1924) then Les Championnats internationaux de France (1925–1967) during the Amateur Era.[3]
  • b The tournament entered the Open Era with the 1968 edition, allowing professional players to compete alongside amateurs.[4]
  • c Each year is linked to an article about that particular years draw, with the exception of pre-1925 years.
  • d Unchallenged champion (only entrant into the final challenge round, thus declared a champion without a contest).
  • e The tournament was not held from 1915 to 1919 because of World War I.[3]
  • f The tournament was not officially held from 1940 to 1945 because of World War II.[3][4] The champions listed are disputed, but are listed by a few sources, which means they are not included in the statistics charts because the slam does not consider them champions. They are listed here as a historical note.[10]
  • g Set score in parentheses indicates a tiebreaker score.
  • h Czechoslovakia (TCH, 1918–1992), does not include the totals of Czech Republic (CZE, 1992–present) and Slovakia (SVK, 1992–present).
  • i No wins by a player from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland (1801–1922), plus many wins by a player(s) from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (1922–present).
  • j Martina Navratilova was born in Czechoslovakia, but she competed as an American because she sought asylum in the United States, which made her have to relenquished her Czechoslovakian citizenship, so after the US Open in 1975 she competed as an American.
  • k FRG is West Germany, but after unification became just Germany(GER) after 1990.
  • l Evonne Goolagong became Evonne Goolagong Cawley after her marriage to Roger Cawley in 1975, however at the time of her winning the 1971 French Open she was single.
