How about some tennis in Paris?
Anyone for tennis? If you are a fan then you should book up a hostel in Paris and get over to France to check out the French Open which is currently going on until June 6th.

The event is held at the Stade Roland Garros and shouldn't be missed by sports enthusiasts because you can see some superb players in action at the prestigious tournament, providing they haven't been knocked out of the competition of course!

You can check out whether Roger Federer can retain the men's title that he won last year or if Svetlana Kuznetsova can do the same in the women's section.

Other greats on show should include Spaniard Rafa Nadal – who managed to break a record at the tournament last year by winning 31 consecutive matches at Roland Garros - the most won by any person at the stadium in a row.

But you don't have to watch the action all the time and you may just like to pop over to the on-site museum. It features a permanent exhibition room and a multimedia centre and you can even enjoy behind the scenes tours of the stadium, which I would love to do one day.

Also, in the multimedia centre you can check out exclusive interviews with past and present champions. I would certainly be interested in hearing what American Andre Agassi has to say – he won the title back in 1999 and was one of the greats in the game as far as I'm concerned. Go America!
