Paris, France – Infront, a Wanda Sports Group company, has been unveiled as one of the Official Hospitality Agencies for Roland-Garros and the Rolex Paris Masters in an agreement with the French Tennis Federation for the next two years until 2021.

Roland-Garros is the premier clay court tennis championship event in the world and the second of four Grand Slam tournaments after the Australian Open in the annual cycle. Staged over two weeks at the Stade Roland-Garros in Paris, it is the sole Grand Slam held on clay.
This year's tournament set new record figures for all platforms as Rafael Nadal won his 12th title and Ashleigh Barty won her first.
In the eyes of sports fans, and indeed the general public, Roland-Garros is an unmissable event that enjoys immense prestige. The 2018 tournament attracted more than 519,900 spectators and was broadcast in 222 countries worldwide, confirming the tournament's status as a first-class international sporting event. Organised by the French Tennis Federation, Roland-Garros is the only Grand Slam tournament to be played on clay, one of the oldest and most noble surfaces in the history of tennis.
