Au Revoir, Roland Garros!

Today, we say "Au Revoir" to the French Open with a collection of best pictures - selected from Roland Garros Official Website and Facebook page (amazing work by photographers Sindy Thomas, Corinne Dubreuil, Christophe Saidi, Fred Stevens, Philippe Montigny) - and some memorable moments caught on video.

2012 Roland Garros has rewritten history books. Nadal claimed his record seventh Roland Garros title, Maria Sharapova completed her career Grand Slam. Djokovic reached his first RG final and put up a fight to break a 43 years-old record and get his Novak Slam (next time, maybe?). In the upset department, Serena Williams was out for the first time in the debut round of a major and former world nº1 Victoria Azarenka lost her throne to Masha, due to Vika's elimination in the 4th-round.
