Every year in September, 50 European countries take part in the European Heritage Days, a programme that offers opportunities to visit buildings, monuments and sites, many of which are not normally accessible to the public. For the first time, yesterday, the French Federation of tennis opened up the Roland Garros stadium and museum free to the public as part of Heritage Days, and of course, I was there.

Waiting to enter the museum, you could still see the Davis Cup semifinals poster and the French and Czech flags atop Court Philippe Chatrier.

Roland Garros

Tennis museum

The permanent exhibition showcases trophies, players memorabilia, a few videos as well as some infos about tennis history and the future Roland Garros stadium expansion.
You might be disappointed if you’ve visited the Wimbledon museum, Roland Garros museum is quite small, with less content and interactivity.

Below, the trophies presented each year to the winner of the men’s singles (Coupe des Mousquetaires) and women’s singles (Coupe Suzanne Lenglen):

Andy Murray

This year’s US Open could be the last Grand Slam tournament Andy Murray plays in adidas clothes as his current contract with adidas expires this November.

Murray signed with adidas in 2009 (his previous clothing sponsor was Fred Perry) and since then he has become a British hero after his victories at the Olympics and the US Open in 2012 and his triumph at Wimbledon in 2013.

According to Business Week Murray’s current agreement with adidas paid him a reported $16.5 million over five years, with bonuses possibly boosting the value as high as $5 million per year.
In comparison, Federer’s Nike deal is reportedly worth as much as $13 million a year, with a base value closer to $10 million. Rafael Nadal gets a reported $7 million per year.

The Daily Record projects that Murray’s next deal may be worth up to $83 million, a substantial increase in money.

I guess adidas will do everything they can to sign Murray otherwise they won’t have any top male players wearing their clothes.
