The French Open may be the most demanding of tennis' Grand Slam events. The famed red clay courts of Roland Garros Stadium in Paris slow even the most aggressive players, making for unpredictable and exciting tournaments.
NBC's coverage is hosted by Ted Robinson and features respected analysts John McEnroe and Mary Carillo.
In 1975, NBC became the first American television network to provide coverage of the French Open when the network signed a three-year deal with the French Tennis Federation. The tournament was covered by CBS from 1980-82 and returned to NBC in 1983, where it has remained ever since. The French Open was broadcast for the 29th year on NBC in 2008.
