It's sure, it will move to the new Centre Rafael Nadal. Completion 2020.

It will stay in France, and may even be called Roland Garros if it moves out from Paris.
people hoping for a Spanish slam are truly naive. Economical state of Spain is close to 3rd world country. They have other problems right now than organizing tennis tournaments for rich lazy people.
Argentina has a chance but they will not move Madrid+Barcelona+Roma out of Europe just to please argentines and their one-slam champion who will be retired for long when the tennis center actually opens.
Germany maybe, but no tennis champion so far and many tournies already.
Italy is possible too but doubtful: economical quagmire will stop any project.

The US open is a joke of an event. It gets worse each year. From rain to wind, the last few years have been a disaster. I wonder how bad things will be this year . I shudder to think.

I can't believe they are not allowed to expand into a small part of the Bois de Bolougne. It is a park filled with hookers and johns, why not fill it with tennis instead.

because it's not the federation's call... it's paris council's call and the justice ruled that the council was not well informed and the fee was too low : new vote is to come, the project isn't abandoned yet. they even pushed a project of covering the highway to get more space

I can't believe RG will move away from its historic venue . Truly stupid.

Probably because there's a big avenue between the grounds and the Bois de Boulogne? If I'm not mistaken, they would expand east, towards Porte d'Auteuil.

It's very easy to look only from our side, and to consider stupid that they're stopping the expansion because of some "stupid botanical garden". For people living there, RG might actually be a major nuisance.

Roland garros is located in an isolated area. The problem is not the nuisance. This area is even really quiet.

The park is as you said the botanic garden, in the east side that has to be moved for the expansion.. I thought they reached a compromise before ecology association pursued RG.

There is certainly a possibility to expand on the highway (the "periph") but I don t know in what extent they can build a new big area with a new stadium, and before all the time to do that (it will be not 2017 for sure)

The only slam left with history will be Wimbledon.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

ITF really has no choice, they have no flood light, the locker rooms are worse than any ATP World Tour event.

I was hoping they will choose the expansion+renovation plan. Too bad it didn't work out.
Love that area of Paris and got used to Roland Garros being held there. Sad news.

I would say Wimbledon causes a lot more disturbance to locals than Roland Garros.

There is both a avenue and a motorway between the grounds and the park so that is a bit of an issue.
