Tournoi de France (tennis)
Tournoi de France, is a name retroactively given to the annual French championship tennis tournament at Roland Garros during World War II. After liberation this wartime resumption of a prewar tournament that took place in Zone occupée no longer became recognized as being part of the annual French Championship (French Open) series. The tournament organizer the Fédération Française de Tennis states that the years between 1941–45 was a period when the tournament had been "cancelled".
