How far do you think Dominika can go at Roland Garros this year?
Le Coq Sportif brand was founded in 1882 by a french entrepreneur named Emile Camuset, and was the number one sports brand in Europe during the 70′s and 80′s.
After designing sportswear for football, rugby, athletics and basketball, Camuset makes the first shirt designed for tennis players in 1930.
From the 50′s to the 80′s, winners of each kind of sport were dressed in Le Coq Sportif: football (French Federation of football, Ajax Amsterdam, Michel Platini), tennis (Yannick Noah, Arthur Ashe), cycling (Tour de France)…
Le Coq Sportif almost disappeared at the end of the 20th century, but the brand intends to reposition itself as the alternative in the sport and mode market.
The “coq gaulois” (gallic rooster) is the french national emblem, and the emblem of French sports teams in international events, such as the French football and rugby teams.
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.
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.
