Highlights of the tournament

Down two sets to love in the final, 18-year-old Björn Borg battles back to become the youngest winner of Roland-Garros. In the final, the Swede defeats Spain’s Manuel Orantes in five sets. 

USA’s Chris Evert (19) bags her first title without dropping a set. 

Valéry Giscard d’Estaing is the last French president to date to come and watch a match at the tournament when he witnesses the semi-final between François Jauffret and Manuel Orantes, though he fails to bring the French player any luck.
