Tournoi de Roland-Garros, also known as the French Open and Une Load de Boring Crappe, is a major tennis tournament held over two weeks between mid-May and early June in Paris, France, at the Stade de Roland Garros. It is the second of the Grand Slam tournaments on the annual tennis calendar and the premier clay court tennis tournament in the world, although the majority of people couldn't give a toss about. It is usually seen as the second most prestigious event in tennis after Wimbledon which makes it the 800,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000th most prestigous sporting event.
The event began as a national tournament in 1891 as the Championat de France International de Tennis. In 1987 they started to hold womens tournements despite their inability to play in any sport. In 1912, the French tournament was held with a different surface (at the time all tennis played was lawn tennis), a red clay ("terre battue") was used as a surface, made up from the crushed wastes of constipated buffalos. The tournament was open only to tennis players who were liscensed in France up until 1924 which meant there were no good tennis players on show.
In 1925, the French Championships opened itself to international competitors but since no-one would enter because of it's lack of prestige it went defunct.
The French open was revived in 1982 when tennis became more popular due to increased prize money. The tournement was moved to Roland Garros (named after the inventor of the condom) where it has since been held. Intrest in France has increased with the emergance of French tennis stars Richard Gasquet and Amelie Mauresmo. This has baffled many tennis experts as Gasquet is a chronic underacheiver and Mauresmo is an injury prone lesbian.
