The 2013 French Open was a tennis tournament played on outdoor clay courts. It was the 117th edition of the French Open and the second Grand Slam event of the year. It took place at the Stade Roland Garros from 26 May to 9 June.[1] It consisted of events for professional players in singles, doubles and mixed doubles play. Junior and wheelchair players also took part in singles and doubles events.

Rafael Nadal was the three-time defending champion in the men's singles, and won the title to become the first man to win the same Grand Slam title eight times. Maria Sharapova was the defending champion in women's singles, but lost in the final to Serena Williams.

This championship was the third time in grand slam history that two multiple slam sets were accomplished in two different disciplines, and that was Serena Williams in Women's Singles, and her fellow countrymen Bob and Mike Bryan in Men's Doubles. At the 1969 US Open, Rod Laver won his multiple slam set in Men's Singles, and his fellow countryman Ken Rosewall did in Men's Doubles. At the 2012 French Open, Mahesh Bhupathi won a multiple slam set in Mixed Doubles, and Esther Vergeer won her multiple slam set in Women's Wheelchair Doubles.

In the women's singles final, it marked the first French Open since 1995 that the top two seeded players had played each other in the final, and the first time at any grand slam event since the 2004 Australian Open that the top two seeded players had played each other in a grand slam final.

Tournament[edit]

The 2013 French Open was the 112th edition of the French Open and was held at Stade Roland Garros in Paris.[2]

The tournament was an event run by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and was part of the 2013 ATP World Tour and the 2013 WTA Tour calendars under the Grand Slam category. The tournament consisted of both men's and women's singles and doubles draws as well as a mixed doubles event.[3]

There were singles and doubles events for both boys and girls (players under 18), which were part of the Grade A category of tournaments, and singles and doubles events for men's and women's wheelchair tennis players as part of the NEC tour under the Grand Slam category. The tournament was played on clay courts and took place over a series of twenty courts, including the three main showcourts, Court Philippe Chatrier, Court Suzanne Lenglen and Court 1.[4]

The winners of the men's and women's singles titles will each earn 1.5 million euros, up 250,000 euros from last year. The move was part of plans to boost the total prize money by a further 10 million euros to 32 million euros by 2016. In comparison, US Open prize money will reach $33.6 million this year and rise to $50 million by 2017, while Wimbledon prize money was more than 16 million pounds ($24.61 million) in 2012.[5] In the 2013 season, the French Open's prize money is the lowest out of four grand slam tournaments, compared to $30m at the Australian Open, $34m at Wimbledon, and $32m at the US Open.[6]
