Jean Gachassin has been reelected President of the Federation Francasie de Tennis (FFT) for a further four years following a meeting of the general assembly at Roland Garros on Saturday.

“Our basic objectives have not changed: to win a Grand Slam, Olympic medals, Fed Cup and Davis Cup,” said Gachassin. “We must consider the competition and our approach to tennis particularly for youngsters. We must ensure children are enjoying tennis and nurture them in our clubs and in our training centres.”

Gachassin is a former French international rugby player who has been President of the FFT since February 2009.
