Also why doesn't have a stadium with a roof yet?! If Centre Court & Arthur Ashe can manage it, so can Philippe Chatrier!

Hello, on June 3rd, matches will start at 1pm on Court Philippe-Chatrier and 11am on the outside courts.
Center court is trying to be Philippe Chatrier
Centre Court is looking and sounding more like Court Philippe Chatrier
Spectators make way into Centre Court. There'll still be more here than on 1st day on Court Philippe Chatrier at
is that, Roland Garros? Court Philippe Chatrier to be precise?
The court should be named Rafael Nadal not Philippe Chatrier.
I wonder when will they rename the Philippe Chatrier to the Rafael Nadal Court. It's only fitting!!!
Brutal stuff on Court Philippe Chatrier in Backing but stunning play from both. Warriors.
just let off a scream that was worthy of Arantxa Sánchez Vicario and might have been heard on Philippe Chatrier court.
now leads the game. A different match begins on the Court Philippe Chatrier. 1-0
The whole Philippe Chatrier court chanting Rafa's. Yes.u break it like a king. ♥♥♥♥
Philippe Chatrier is so unremarkable. if it weren't for the distinct court color, this slab of concrete could be anywhere.
The courts are uncovered and players are about to come on - Andrea Petkovic v Sara Errani on Philippe Chatrier, Svetlana Kuznetsova v Simona Halep on Suzanne Lenglen
Roland Garros Round 4 Rafa will face Lajovic TODAY 2nd match on Philippe Chatrier at about !pm local time..2pm...
Stan crushed; Rafa, Novak untroubled 26 May 2014 Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka came back to earth with a thump on the sodden clay at the French Open when he was beaten by Spain's Guillermo Garcia-Lopez in the first round on Monday to become the tournament's first big casualty. The Swiss third seed threw away a 3-1 lead in the first set and even though he pulled level by winning the second set he capitulated to a 6-4 5-7 6-2 6-0 defeat against a man who has never gone past the third round at Roland Garros. Dealing with expectation has never been a problem for Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal and they both raced into the second round on a damp day in the French capital. Second seed Djokovic played the funny man as he slithered to a 6-1 6-2 6-4 win over Portugal's Joao Sousa while defending champion Nadal slipped into his customary role of cold-blooded assassin against Robbie Ginepri. Djokovic had criticised the surface on the Philippe Chatrier show court for being too damp after several days of ...
World No.1, 8 times French Open Champion, arguably best player in the Clay court, Defending Champion,, Rafael Nadal allotted to play his match in secondary court 'Suzanne Lenglen' court. And organizers hosted No.3 Wawrinka's match in Philippe Chatrier court.. Guess what happened? The Champion cruised into the second rnd and No.3 knocked out in the Central court..
This could be the match of the day - 2008 Roland Garros champion Ana Ivanovic v Caroline Garcia, a rising star on the WTA Tour. Ivanovic has been in great form in 2014 but Garcia will have the whole of Philippe Chatrier behind her - who do you think will win? Our analysis:
Tennis rant: It is unacceptable that the tournament directors allowed Rafael Nadal's first match at Roland Garros this year be on the court, Suzannne Lenglen. Rafa is defending the French title for the 8th time AND he's world number 1. Yes, move him around in the days to come so that the public has a better chance to see him play, but show some respect to the man on his first day at the tournament. I don't care what other matches are going on, you move them around so the greatest clay court player of all time gets to play on Philippe Chatrier.
World no 1 and 8 times champion Rafael Nadal gets Suzzane Lenglen and not Philippe Chatrier.

Rafa's already in Paris! Had his first practice session at the Philippe Chatrier court today! Roland Garros it's almost starting!
Novak: "People comes to support their favourite players around the world, of course the French most. That's the beauty of the Grand Slam. You have such a big international crowd coming and acknowledging you of what we do on tennis courts. They appreciate what tennis players do and they love this sport. As a tennis player, when you enter Philippe Chatrier or any other tennis court in ROLAND-GARROS, automatically you feel welcome and you share that passion". Pictures of today :)

Who can guess what Roger was thinking at the Philippe Chatrier center court of Roland Garros?

Fifth set on Philippe Chatrier. Will this set be as lopsided as the first four? Federer and Simon are level right now, score being 1-6, 6-4, 6-2, 2-6 in favour of Simon. Can Simon pull off the upset? This upset would have a giant impact, so this match is worth watching! Switch on your TVs right now!
We're currently live from Roland Garros. Tune in to Lee James as he is sat in the Philippe Chatrier watching Rafael Nadal take on Italian Fabio Fognini. The Spaniard has just taken the second set in the match after he snuck past Fognini in a first set tie-break.
The third match today on Court Philippe Chatrier is between World No.4 and seven-time champion Rafael Nadal against Italian Fabio Fognini Head to Head: The two have just played one match in the past, and that day Nadal came out on top winning very easily in straight sets. .

seed Novak Djokovic produced a composed performance against Argentinian *** Pella to set up a clash with rising star Grigor Dimitrov in the French Open third round. The World No 1, who is bidding to win a first title at Roland Garros and aiming to become just the eighth man to complete a career Grand Slam, proved a class apart. He lost just four games en-route to an easy 6-2 6-0 6-2 victory against the left-hander from Buenos Aires in one hour and 26 minutes on Philippe Chatrier. The 26-year-old Serbian pushed his opponent on to the back foot with his superior courtcraft from the start.
Love it when I play as Ivanovic on Philippe Chatrier, and the crowd goes, "Take your time, Ana!"
Nicknamed “Mighty Mite” by Filipino sportswriter Willie Hernandez Sr. after the popular animated superhero Mighty Mouse, he competed and won against more powerful players who towered over him. The Mighty Mite claimed the scalps of future Hall of Famers Vic Seixas, Bobby Riggs, Bill Talbert, Jaroslav Drobny, “Budge” Patty, Tom Brown and a French gentleman named Philippe Chatrier, a future International Tennis Federation president and the player for whom the center court at Roland Garros is named. The Filipino was unknown no more.
1. Centre Court 2. Rod Laver Arena 3. Hisense Arena 4. Philippe Chatrier. I'm not a fan of Ashe at all, I guess it's no. 5. God, so noisy.
Just gorging on the sports fest that has been... a win for Germany (wahnsinn!), women's Grand Slam at Roland Garros followed by a supreme clash of tennis titans Nadal vs Novac in the men's final, rained off so raise hopes of an Ireland win, Croatia wins, hopes dashed, boys back on court at Philippe Chatrier, battle re-commences, no fifth set but England vs France to look forward to, Allez les bleus! (only joking). Quite concerned about my testosterone levels - heh heh!
