It was the 123rd edition of the French Open and the second Grand Slam event of 2019. The main singles draws included 16 qualifiers for men and 12 for women out of 128 players in each draw. This was in contrast to two other Grand Slam tournaments – the Australian Open and Wimbledon, which from 2019 increased the number of women qualifiers to 16, to match with the US Open.

2019 was the final year in which there was no roof on any of the French tennis courts. On 5 June 2019, the entire day's tennis was washed out due to heavy rain.[1] It is also the only Grand Slam to retain the advantage set in the final sets, whereas Australian Open and Wimbledon have now switched to tiebreaks.[2][3]
