FO or RG ?

Which do you call it, 'French Open' or 'Roland Garros'.
I remember reading that the "official" name is RG, not FO.

.....I don't see any difference.

www.rolandgarros.com
www.frenchopen.com

Both end up in the same official site...so the organisation accept both.

I guess it's like The Championships and Wimbledon. However in this case, Wimbledon is more obvious to most people and in the above case, French Open is more familiar to most.

Justine Henin

Thank you.

same here.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

As long as nobody answers : RoLLand Garros, it's ok.

But as a Frenchman, I prefer "Roland Garros" coz, obviously here, we don't call it "French Open" lol and Roland Garros is much shorter than "Internationnaux de France"...

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbiñe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...

I usually say French Open but sometimes I say Roland Garros. If I am around non-tennis fans and I say Roland Garros they have no clue...lol Some of them don't even know what the French Open is!

When I'm talking to tennis fans, I say Roland Garros. When I'm talking to people who aren't familiar with the game, I say French Open.
