Yonex French Open

The name French Open conjures up the famed Roland Garros tennis (Grand Slam) tournament.

Unlike the clay court of Roland Garros, Yonex French Open is played indoors on rubber mat courts.

Winnings by Champions are so little compared to the amount earned at Roland Garros.

Singles winner of Roland Garros takes home 1.8 million Euros, whereas men's singles in Yonex French Open get paid  US dollars 40,000. 

Linked here as of last year, Lee Chong Wei took home USD 40,000. 

Location of Yonex French Open is in Stade Pierre de Coubertin in Paris. Nearest Paris Metro is Porte de St Cloud. 

I was in Paris 2 years ago, I remember the metro is pretty easy to navigate. I bought a Mobilis day pass and could cover the main tourist sight in Paris in one day.

However, beware of pickpockets though, I saw many suspicious kids/teenagers in the metro. 

Also better to ask someone in French 1st if you got lost and need help before switching to English.
