Security will be tighter than ever at the French Open in the wake of the attacks in Paris last November.The FFT declined to give the precise number of security agents being deployed, saying only it was up by 25 percent compared to last year.In the 2009 French Open final, a fan ran onto the court and put a hat on Federer's head, while three years ago a man who jumped onto the court with a lit flare briefly interrupted the final between Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer.In the wake of the attacks in Paris that left 130 people dead, France remains in a state of emergency which was recently extended by two months and will cover the French Open, the European Championship in June-July, and the Tour de France in July.
