The stadium celebrates its 50th anniversary with a ceremony prior to the men’s final featuring 30 previous winners.
After a two-year absence, Björn Borg makes it a winning comeback to Roland Garros by taking his third title at the Porte d’Auteuil. In the final, the Swede shows absolutely no mercy with Guillermo Vilas.
Romania’s Virginia Ruzici wins not only the singles but the doubles too, teaming up with Yugoslavia’s Mima Jausovec. And for the first time, the tournament is broadcast in its entirety on French television.
