  1. RAFAEL NADAL

Widely considered the greatest clay-court player of all time and Roland-Garros’ most iconic champion, Rafael has won 9 titles between 2005 and 2014

  1. CHRIS EVERT

A record seven Roland-Garros titles makes Chris Evert to women’s tennis, what Bjorn Borg was to men’s. Her record has stood the test of time and is expected to further.

  1. STEFFI GRAF

Apart from her six title win between 1987 and 1999, Steffi Graf holds the record for the most matches played and won at Roland-Garros.

  1. BJORN BORG

With six Paris titles between 1974 and 1981, Bjorn Borg set new benchmarks in tennis that couldn’t be paralleled until decades after.

5 singles titles, 4 doubles and 4 more in mixed doubles – No one has more Paris titles than Margaret Smith Court.

  1. JUSTIN HENIN

She gave up playing at 25, but not before she had eased to four titles in Paris. With a longer playing career, the records would certainly have been more enviable.

  1. HENRI COCHET

Four titles at the French Internationals, Henri Cochet was on the Musketeers for whom Roland-Garros stadium was built.

  1. HELEN WILLS

Not a loss, not a set dropped in her four title triumphs at Roland-Garros. Helen Wills became one of the first stars in tennis history.

An unforgettable 1984 final against John McEnroe and playing receiver to Michael Chang’s under-arm service in 1989, Ivan Lendl won three Paris titles.

  1. MATS WILANDER

It’s safe to call him Coupe des Mousquetaires’ co-owner along with Ivan Lendl, during the 80s. Mats Wilander was widely regarded Borg’s successor and won 3 Paris titles.

  1. GUSTAVO KUERTEN

The dawn of the new millennium saw Brazilian Gustavo Kuerten dominate and snap-up three Roland-Garros titles.

  1. SUZANNE LENGLEN
