Roland Garros' Best Finals
Over the years, Roland Garros has given us some truly exciting matches, in both the ATP and the WTA! So let's take a look at some of the most exciting French Open Final matches of all time.
Rafa Nadal v Mariano Puerta (2005)
Nadal's first ever win at the French Open took the tennis world by storm! At the tender age of 19, the Spaniard's victory at Roland Garros saw him claim his first Coupe des Mousquetaires. Admittedly it was his semifinal win against the legendary Roger Federer (on Nadal's birthday no less) that really turned heads, but considering Nadal would go on to win 9 more titles in the years that followed, this is where it all began.
Chris Evert v Martina Navrátilová (1985)
The rivalry between these two WTA stars was so fierce that it eventually became novelised and has long been described by tennis fans as the "Rivalry of the Century". Competing with each other a total of 80 times, the two were polar opposites both in playing style and in personalities. With Evert demonstrating consistency and patience that only comes from serious determination, Navratilova was emotional yet volatile, wearing her heart on her sleeve with every stroke! Suffice to say, their final clash in 1985 saw Evert finally take the win after a truly amazing 3-hour match, but of course what is remembered most is Navratilova's gracious hug after, followed by Evert's well-hidden tears.
Yannick Noah v Mats Wilander (1983)
It shouldn't come as a surprise that one of the greatest finals to take place at Roland Garros involved a French player. Yannick Noah's victory at Roland Garros saw France win their first French Open in over 67 years, and considering the idea of crowd invasion is nearly non-existent in tennis, there's footage of Noah greeting fans on court just after his win! Part of Noah's charm throughout his career was his ability to captivate, and there's no doubting whose side the folks at Roland Garros were on during this particular match!
Considering the level of prestige and honour this tournament has acquired, make sure you attend either of these important games and buy your Roland Garros Finals tickets as soon as possible and see your favourite tennis players in action!
