Grand Slams on FOX Sports

Also called majors, each tournament is played over a two-week period, and offers the most ranking points, prize money, public and media attention, the greatest strength and size of field, and greater number of “best of” sets for men.

 

 

May 26 marked the beginning of the French Open, the 2nd grand slam of the year, held in the red clay courts of the Stade Roland Garros in Paris. Rafael Nadal looks to win an unprecedented 12th Men’s Singles title, while Simona Halep, who won her first grand slam title here, will want to show the tennis world the she’s no one-slam wonder.
