The change of the director of Roland Garros became especially notable this time. For the first time of this legendary Grand Slam event, the leading role took a woman.
Of course, the leadership role was given to the French with an exceptional experience in tennis – Amelie Mauresmo. She is a twice title-holder of Grand Slam events and kept the first position in the WTA rankings in 2004. The former director of the French Open was another notable French tennis player – Guy Forget.
The Frenchwoman has won 25 titles at the edge of the 2000s. Among the most prestigious victories are the Australian Open and Wimbledon. After her retirement in 2009, Mauresmo was the coach of tennis players. Want to know more about tennis and don’t miss the important tennis news?
