Tournoi de France (tennis)
Tournoi de France, is a name given to the annual French championship tennis tournament at Roland Garros during World War II. The tournament was played on the same grounds of the championship in the preceding and subsequent years. However these wartime tournaments, 1941–44 of which were held in what was then Zone occupée, have never been recognized by the French Championship (French Open) tournament organizer, Fédération Française de Tennis, major sources or other tennis organizations.
