French Open (Roland Garros)
There have been some epic men’s and women’s tennis matches played on the clay courts at the French Open. The prominent tournament is nicknamed Roland Garros after the famous aviator, so it seems fitting that many spectators swoop into Paris on a private charter flight with Stratos Jets to watch the action live.
The French Open is the premier clay court championship in the world, and the second of four annual Grand Slams. Starting in late May, it follows nearly five months after the Australian Open. The world’s top tennis players then have just a few weeks to rest and prepare for Wimbledon in late June.
Because of it’s ability to slow down the ball, the clay surface takes away some of the advantage held by big servers and those who play a serve-and-volley style. There is a list of notable players who have won multiple Grand Slam events that have never won Roland Garros:
- Pete Sampras
- John McEnroe
- Venus Williams
- Jimmy Connors
- Martina Hingis
- Novak Djokovic
Fan-favourite champions include:
Men’s: Stan Wawrinka
Women’s: Serena Williams
Men’s doubles: Ivan Dodig & Marcelo Melo
Women’s doubles: Bethanie Mattek-Sands & Lucie Safarova
Mixed doubles: Mattek-Sands and Mike Bryan
The French Open is played over two weeks, so when you get there you want to be fresh. Stratos can help by planning every detail of your private charter flight. With Stratos, you have access to more than 3,500 pre-screened charter aircraft worldwide. We fly you when you want, where you want.
While the bulk of air traffic arrives in Paris through Charles de Gaulles (LFPG), passengers arriving on a private charter flight will probably find it more convenient to land at either Orly (LFPO) or Paris Le Bourget (LFPB).
