The French Open (French: Les internationaux de France de Roland-Garros or Tournoi de Roland-Garros, named after the famous French aviator Roland Garros) is a major tennis tournament held over two weeks between late May and early June in Paris, France, at the Stade Roland Garros. It is the premier clay court tennis tournament in the world and the second of the four annual Grand Slam tournaments – the other three are the Australian Open, US Open and Wimbledon. Roland Garros is the only Grand Slam still held on clay and ends the spring clay court season.

It is one of the most prestigious events in tennis, and it has the widest worldwide broadcasting and audience of all regular events in this sport.Because of the slow playing surface and the five-set men’s singles matches without a tiebreak in the final set, the event is widely considered to be the most physically demanding tennis tournament in the world.

RG Match Analysis DVD Features

After each match, in collaboration with the Fédération Française de Tennis, IBM helps players and coaches analyse their performance with the Match Analysis DVD that is produced and delivered to the players after the end of the game. This gives a point-by-point replay and comes with a searchable video index, so they can view specific shots. It’s a powerful way for players to analyse performance, spot weaknesses (theirs and their opponent’s) and develop their game. This is a good example of how IBM and the FFT collect data and present them in a more compelling way to sharpen competitive edge.

More than 230 DVDs handed by IBM and the FFT to Roland-Garros singles players 15 minutes after their match on the 5 main courts in 2008

Fast Facts:
