The French Tennis Federation has unveiled the official poster for Roland Garros 2014, designed by Spaniard Jean Uslé.

He chose to depict the dramatic yet civilised clash between tennis players, showing the net, the ball and the epic action in a colourful baroque work.

Need a break between two tennis matches at Roland Garros? Pay a visit to Roland Garros tennis museum (also called Tenniseum), situated near Gate B. It is open to the public free of charge from 10am to 7pm during the tournament.

Tennis museum at Roland Garros

The museum was created in 2003, I first visited it in 2005 or 2006 but haven’t since.
The permanent exhibition area, that has been totally revamped last year, features some player memorabilia, a few videos as well as some infos about tennis history and the future Roland Garros expansion.
