And we’ve lived again the most beautiful period of the year, here in Paris: the most incredible tournament of the Tennis Era, Roland Garros, also known as French Open. I think I am not the only one stating that the court Philippe Chatrier is the most beautiful central in the world. Reaching a final here is amazing, but winning La Decima, on the clay court, has a simple word: Nadal.
For the two finals, Women and Men, Louis Vuitton created two trunks to protect the two trophies: Suzanne Lenglen Cup for Women and La Coupe des Mousquetaires for Men.
Nicole Kidman delivered La Coupe des Mousquetaires for the winner of the men’s singles competition on Sunday.
The Australian actress won the 70th Anniversary Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in May, with no fewer than four projects showcased this year: “How to Talk to Girls at Parties,” “The Beguiled,” “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” and the second season of Jane Campion’s television series “Top of the Lake.”
Alexander Skarsgård brought the Suzanne Lenglen Cup for the ladies’ singles final on Saturday. “Tarzan” recently starred alongside Nicole Kidman in the HBO miniseries “Big Little Lies,” in which they played a couple locked in an abusive relationship.
It was a beautiful tournament, and like every year, I couldn’t miss the event. I was incredibly happy that my compatriot, Simona Halep, qualified for the second time in the final. I would have loved for her to win, but I am in awe with her clay season.

I love tennis so much because it addresses to a different type of sport fans, and each time I go to a tennis court, I get the chance to display my Hats Collection. I was truly amazed with the Women’s Singles this year. In my opinion, their matches were by far more interesting than the Men’s Singles. I was disappointed with Djokovic this year. It was like seeing a complete stranger on the court. For sure it wasn’t the one who won Roland Garros last year and Bercy.
