Cancer (21 June - 22 July) 

Sensitive and thoughtful, your nostalgic nature can overcome you at times.

The star of the show? It’s you! Worthy ambassadors for the fire signs, you Leos love hogging the spotlight! Your pride can make you come across as arrogant but, in truth, your fierce need to be centre stage means you are often misunderstood.

Your alter-egos on the court: Stefanos Tsitsipas, Roger Federer, Victoria Azarenka

Virgo (23 August - 22 September)

So discreet, and yet…there is nobody else quite like you. Virgos, you are one of a kind! Down-to-earth and rational, humble and courteous, at Roland-Garros you should not be afraid of loving too much or too strongly. You are always up for a tennis match, so, when tempted with an epic tennis match in a magical and unique venue, there is no need to ask you twice!

Where to find you in the stadium: Simonne-Mathieu court

Your alter-egos on the court: Dominic Thiem, Gustavo Kuerten, Elina Svitolina

Libra (23 September - 22 October)

Enjoying a relaxed yet refined lifestyle, you are idealists who are as mystical as you are fantasists! You love museums, old books, memories, culture and a lot of laughter to top it all off.

Scorpio (23 October - 22 November)

Your magnetism lights you up, your complexity is your greatness! Scorpios, though we might try to explore the 12 hectares of your “personality stadium”, we will never see it all. You are an untameable old soul, uncompromising and perseverant, resignation does not feature in your vocabulary or your life. Who cares if your idol loses the second set! With a winning spirit, anything is possible. 

Where to find you in the stadium: All over the grounds, you “are” the stadium

Your alter-egos on the court: Boris Becker, Sofia Kenin, Ana Ivanovic, Billie Jean King

Capricorns, the mere sight of the red clay fills you with wonder! Not to mention the architectural prowess that the stadium showcases so magnificently. The most loyal of fans, you wouldn’t miss an edition of Roland-Garros for the world. Ambitious, hard-working and honest, you may not be very demonstrative or expressive but, for you, only the players’ authenticity and the final result count.

Aquarius (19 January - 18 February)

Non-conformists by nature, you do not like rules or complications, and refuse to sacrifice your own comfort. What you like the most about Roland-Garros is the subtle blend of the almost-hundred-year-old stadium’s historic heritage with its impressive innovations! Positive, idealistic and very empathetic, you still get emotional about Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’s defeat at the hands of Novak Djokovic back in 2012!

Where to find you in the stadium: In one of the boxes on Suzanne-Lenglen court, panama on your head

Your alter-egos on the court: Daniil Medvedev, John McEnroe, Marat Safin, Simonne Mathieu, Alizé Cornet

Pisces (19 February - 20 March)

Often lost in the mist of your dreams, you Pisces live in your very own bubble. Highly intuitive, you feel things from a mile off and believe there is no point in fighting fate! If you are unable to travel in person, you embark others with you on a journey into your imagination. At Roland-Garros, the tennis spirit nourishes you and enriches your collection of inner memories.

Where to find you in the stadium: Taking a selfie in front of the clay wall

Your alter-egos on the court: Eugénie Bouchard, Sloane Stephens, Lucas Pouille, Nathalie Dechy
