The French Open at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris is one of the year's most hotly anticipated professional tennis tournaments, and thousands flock to the stadium each spring to get a glimpse of standing champions or up-and-coming players in action on the red clay courts. The tournament harks back to 1891 (although the current stadium wasn't built until 1928) and has seen countless key moments in tennis history. Enthusiasts of the sport should do their best to snag a seat at the French Open, but be aware that tickets are always highly coveted and can be very difficult to get, so you should try to reserve several months ahead.
