Sandra De Jenken to take over as French Open referee
With effect from 1 January 2008, Sandra de Jenken Eversmann – who has joined the French Tennis Federation as Assistant Director – will take over responsibility for tennis operations at the French Open tournament.
She is replacing Stéphane Simian, who had held these responsibilities at Roland Garros for more than seven years. Sandra, who holds a degree in sports science, had a long and successful career as an international tennis umpire which saw her officiate at 13 Grand Slam finals, including the men's singles at Roland Garros and the Australian Open in 2007. She also umpired at the Olympic Games in Sydney and Athens.
Good luck Sandra!
