Court Philippe-Chatrier / Centre Court
This is the largest, most imposing court of the Grounds at Porte d’Auteuil. With 15,059 seats, this court hosts the most exciting matches, not forgetting of course, the finals. In 2001 it was renamed after Philippe Chatrier, a former player, captain of the French tennis team, President of the French Tennis Federation and later the International Tennis Federation and member of the International Olympic Committee.
Seating up to 10,076 spectators, this court was built in 1994 and originally called Court A. In 1997 it was renamed after France’s greatest female tennis player, Suzanne Lenglen, who won the ladies singles at the French Open a total of six times, as well as winning the doubles twice and the mixed doubles seven times!
Built in 1980, this court can hold up to 3,805 fans. It is the third biggest court in the Grounds.
