After the famous victory of the brilliant French tennis quartet known as the Four Musketeers at the 1927 Davis Cup, a stadium was needed in which the players could defend the trophy. Thus was the Stade Roland Garros built in record time close to Porte d'Auteuil. Named after the pioneering aviator who, in 1913, made the first non-stop aerial crossing of the Mediterranean Sea, the stadium was inaugurated in 1928 and became the home of the French Open tennis tournament. The event grew into a phenomenal worldwide success and saw the rise to prominence of global champions, especially in the golden years of the 70s and 80s; decades which saw greats such as Björn Borg, Mats Wilander and Ivan Lendl. The biggest tournament in the world of clay remains the stronghold of international tennis champions who, each year, offer an amazing show.
