The tennis experience for remote fans is getting a revamp as Infosys’ technologies will be used at Roland-Garros to transform the entire tennis ecosystem. Through the technologies, the fans, players, coaches, broadcasters, journalists, and the tournament organizers will be able to navigate the French Grand Slam in new innovative ways through immersive and intelligent tools.
With Infosys by their side, Roland-Garros 2021 will see Artificial Intelligence (AI), 3D, and cloud solutions being leveraged to transform match viewing, player training, tournament reporting, and broadcast editing. This will also involve a launch of digital art museum to celebrate the spirit and heritage of Roland-Garros.

The innovations we have created are leading the way in establishing a long-term immersive and digital standard for sporting tournaments," said AmélieOudéa-Castera, Chief Executive Officer of French Tennis Federation (FFT).
