The 2019 French Open was a Grand Slam tennis tournament played on outdoor clay courts. It was held at the Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France, from 26 May to 9 June, comprising singles, doubles and mixed doubles play. Junior and wheelchair tournaments are also scheduled. Rafael Nadal was the defending champion in men's singles and won a record 12th French Open singles title. Simona Halep was the defending champion in the women's singles, but lost in the quarterfinals.

It was the 123rd edition of the French Open and the second Grand Slam event of 2019. The main singles draws included 16 qualifiers for men and 12 for women out of 128 players in each draw. This was in contrast to two other Grand Slam tournaments – the Australian Open and Wimbledon, which from 2019 increased the number of women qualifiers to 16, to match with the US Open.

2019 was the final year in which there was no roof on any of the French tennis courts. On 5 June 2019, the entire day's tennis was washed out due to heavy rain.[1] It is also the only Grand Slam to retain the advantage set in the final sets, whereas Australian Open and Wimbledon have now switched to tiebreaks.[2][3]

Tournament[edit]

The tournament is an event run by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and is part of the 2019 ATP Tour and the 2019 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.[5]

There is a singles and doubles events for both boys and girls (players under 18), which is part of the Grade A category of tournaments,[6] and singles and doubles events for men's and women's wheelchair tennis players under the Grand Slam category,[7] also hosting singles and doubles events for wheelchair quad tennis for the first time.[8] The tournament is played on clay courts and took place over a series of 23 courts, including the three main showcourts, Court Philippe Chatrier, Court Suzanne Lenglen and the newly-opened Court Simonne Mathieu.[5][9]
