The on-court tension will be palpable at the French Open women’s final on Saturday and the men’s on Sunday, because the honour of winning a title at Roland Garros is enormous. The rewards are also substantial: about R37 million for each of the singles winners and almost R30 million for the runners-up. Last year, Rafael Nadal won his 11th Roland Garros title, while Simona Halep won her first.
