The French Open 2023 – Fixtures, Schedule and All You Need To Know.

The anticipation for the clay-court spectacle, the 2023 French Open, is peaking. From May 28 to June 11, Stade Roland Garros will reverberate with thunderous applause and fervent cheering as world-class tennis players come together to battle it out for the coveted trophy.

But this year, a significant absence is felt. Rafael Nadal, the “King of Clay,” has withdrawn due to an injury. A stalwart since his debut in 2005, Nadal has a whopping 14 French Open wins to his name. His absence is a first for the tournament, marking a historic turn in the narrative.

The triumphant singles players of the 2022 French Open, Rafael Nadal and Iga Swiatek, enjoyed their moment of glory as they collected 2000 points and 2.2 million euros each. Yet, this year’s pot of gold has grown more attractive with a 12.3% boost, promising the singles victors a hefty 2.3 million euros each.

Let’s unpack some essential details about this grand tennis celebration:

The French Open’s journey commences with the qualifiers from 23rd to 26th May 2023. The tennis spectacle truly ignites on May 28, which marks the beginning of the Grand Slam. Sandwiched between is the much-awaited Yannick Noah Day, newly christened in honour of Roland Garros’ charity day on May 27.
