The 2006 French Open was a tennis tournament that took place on the outdoor clay courts at the Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France from May 28 to June 11, 2006. It was the 105th staging of the French Open, and the second of the four Grand Slam tennis events of 2006. This edition made history as it became the first Grand Slam tournament to start on a Sunday. It was the 2nd time since 1985 that all top 4 seeds reached the semi-finals in the men's singles of a Grand Slam tournament. This did not happen again until the same tournament 5 years later. Both defending champions, Rafael Nadal and Justine Henin-Hardenne, retained their titles.
- It was Nadal's 2nd career Grand Slam title, and his 2nd (consecutive) French Open title.
- It was Henin-Hardenne's 3rd title of the year, and her 26th overall. It was her 5th career Grand Slam title, and her 3rd French Open title.
