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.

Kuznetsova has recently switched clothing sponsor, from Fila to Qiaodan:

“I had offer, and I appreciate Fila. I have been with Fila for 10 years or more. They did the best for me. I appreciate everything they done. But it’s time for me to do a new thing, and that’s why sign me deal. And pretty happy looking forward to have a good relationship with the new company, Chinese company. I like so much the quality of the clothes. I like the design a lot.”

Never heard of Qiaodan before? Well, me neither.
