It is said victory belongs to the most obstinate. This was the motto of pioneering French aviator Roland Garros. And it is a maxim that resonates with the tennis stadium and event in Paris that bear his name. At the season’s second Grand Slam® championship, the slow clay courts form something of a living surface, influencing the players’ style and movement over long, gruelling rallies that demand courage and the will to go beyond one’s limits. Only those who can tame the surface, slide after slide, point after point, trace after trace, can hope to leave an indelible mark on this fabled tournament, whose origins date back to 1891. Since 2019, Rolex has been its Premium Partner, Official Timekeeper and Official Watch. Discover more https://on.rolex.com/3sIg91g
