Rafael Nadal has won the title at Roland Garros for the last three years.

Over the course of the whole tournament the record number of championship wins is eight, by Frenchman Max Decugis, between the 1903 and 1914.

In the 70s and 80s Björn Borg became the player with the most men's singles titles at the Roland Garros Stadium, which has been the home to the competition since 1928.

American Chris Evert-Lloyd (née Evert) has won the most women's singles titles, winning the championship seven times between 1974 and 1986.

Most recently Justine Hénin, formerly Hénin-Hardenne, and Rafael Nadal have dominated the tournament.
