The French Open is a grand slam tournament played on clay surface. The tournament will be held over two weeks between late May and early June every year. It is held in Paris, France, at the Stade Roland Garros. French Open is considered to be the most physically demanding tennis tournament as the games are held on a slow playing clay surface without a tiebreak in the final set.

The 2010 French Open is the 109th edition of the French Open grand slam event. It is also the second grand slam in the year 2010.

The official name of the French Open grand slam is French Les Internationaux de France de Roland Garros or Tournoi de Roland-Garros which translates to "French Internationals of Roland Garros" or "Roland Garros Tournament" in English. It is often referred to as Roland Garros.

2009 US Open Women's Singles champion Kim Clijsters and Men's Singles champion Juan Martin del Potro withdrew from the French Open 2010 grand slam tournament. A left foot injury has forced Kim Clijsters to pull out from the tournament. On May 14, French Tennis Federation announced that Kim Clijsters, Juan Martin del Potro, Nikolay Davydenko and James Blake will not play at the French Open grand slam this year. Urszula Radwanska, Sania Mirza, Anna-Lena Groenefeld, Sabine Lisicki, Tommy Haas and Igor Andreev will also miss the tournament.

Florian Mayer withdrew from the tournament with a stomach problem. Dieter Kindlmann replaces him.
