Overview



The Grand Slam® tournaments - Australian Open, Roland Garros, Wimbledon and US Open - are the most prestigious individual competitions in tennis. The ITF works closely with each tournament through its presence on the Grand Slam Committee, providing administrative, officiating and media support.

Four of the ITF's leading National Associations - Tennis Australia, French Federation of Tennis, United States Tennis Association and, in the case of Wimbledon, a joint Committee of Management consisting of The All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club and Lawn Tennis Association - own and organise the Grand Slams.
