The lifting of pandemic-related health constraints finally makes it possible to enjoy this new edition of the foremost clay court championship to the fullest.

Finally, a player will lift the trophy on June 4th at the end of the women's final, while the two best male players will face off the next day, June 5th, to climax the tournament.
Extra events to enrich the tournament even further
In addition to the matches within the main framework, the French open 2022 will host several other events. On May 21st, you are invited to attend a charity day called Les Enfants de Roland Garros, intended to raise funds to help clubs and foster an interest in tennis among youngsters. On June 3rd and 4th, during the Wheelchair Tennis for All initiative, you can attend the finals of the Adecco Group Wheelchair Tennis Tournament on the prominent stage of the Philippe-Chatrier Court. And we must not forget the Legends Tournament, which sees the former stars of world tennis compete in a spirit of good humour to the delight of the public.
