The competition will see the eight finalists play the new video game “Tennis World Tour”, published by Bigben and released on 22 May.
The winner will be crowned the first ever champion of an e-tennis tournament organised by a Grand Slam tournament.
This final will be broadcast live from 3pm (GMT +1) on Friday 25 May on the France tv sport platform as well as via Facebook Live on the France tv sport page, and will also be shown on the Roland Garros Facebook page and on the WeAreTennis website.
Commentary will be provided by journalist Matthieu Lartot and professional e-sport player and e-sport ambassador for Roland Garros, Norman “Genius” Chatrier - the grandson of former FFT president Philippe Chatrier, after whom Roland-Garros' premier court is named.
Roland Garros and BNP Paribas are proud to act as trailblazers in organising this type of competition, as well as bringing together the e-gaming and tennis-playing communities.
