  • 20.05.2015

This year's French Open takes place from May 19 to June 7.

For over 40 years, BNP Paribas is the sponsor of this Grand Slam tournament, which is one of the most famous and prestigious in the world ones.

The competition will be very tough, both in the women's and the men's competition.

In the women's tournament, Serena Williams, Ana Ivanovic, Jelena Jankovic Alize Cornet, Svetlana Kuznetsova will battle to succeed to Maria Sharapova, winner in 2014, who will defend her title this year.

In the men's competition, Rafael Nadal will strive to win a new coronation, facing Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Andy Murray, Milos Raonic, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and David Ferrer.

Godfather for 15 years for the selection of ball boys, BNP Paribas puts them forward throughout the fortnight, on a dedicated stand, and through five teasers, showing the process of selecting the 250 elected children, lived from the inside, announcing a 15-minute film, which will be aired on television just before the men's final, on June 7.
