Each year, the epicenter of the tennis world circumnavigates the globe as the best athletes go head-to-head at the Grand Slam tournaments in Australia, France, the UK and the United States.

Australian Open

The Australian Open marks the start to the Grand Slam season. Held in the Rod Laver Arena and Margaret Court Arena, the Australian Open attracts sizable crowds, second only to the attendance at the U.S. Open. The history of the tournament dates back to 1905, when the inaugural Australasian Championship event was held at Melbourne’s Warehouseman Cricket Ground.


Schedule:

11-15 January: Qualifying

16-23 January: First through Fourth Round

24-25 January: Quarterfinals

26-27 January: Semifinals

28-29 January: Finals

In the early days of the tournament, the Australian Open had trouble attracting international players due to Australia’s remote location. Now, you can charter a private jet to Melbourne Airport to land just 22 kilometers from the court. Tickets are available at this link.

French Open

22 May-11 Jun 2017

Location: Roland Garros, Paris, France

The French Open is the only Grand Slam tournament played on a clay court, often considered to be the most physically demanding surface in the sport. The tournament originated in 1891 as the members-only French Championships. The French Tennis Federation opened the championship to foreign players in 1925. Now, the tournament is often referred to as “Roland Garros” after the famous French aviator for whom the host stadium is named.
