Roland Garros

The French Open will begin on Sunday at Roland Garros.

From Wikipedia:

“Le Stade Roland Garros (“Roland Garros Stadium”) is a tennis venue complex located in Paris, France. It is named for Roland Garros, a pioneer aviator (completed the first solo flight across the Mediterranean Sea[1]), engineer (inventor of the first forward-firing aircraft machine gun[2]), and World War I hero (the first pilot to shoot down five enemy aircraft, and to be called an “ace” for doing so[3]), who was killed in aerial combat in 1918.”

Who knew?  Robert had always thought he was a tennis player.
