  • French Open 2019: Roger Federer - I feel comfortable back on clay

"Of her 23 Grand Slams, only three have been won at Roland Garros, and it would be a remarkable achievement for Serena to win this year's French Open", Mair continued.

A solid if unspectacular candidate, Nishikori reached the semi-finals in Barcelona and has made it to the second week at Roland Garros in each of his last two visits. It will be interesting to see if, without physical problems, Serena's athletic condition in Paris will be better than what was seen between Indian Wells and Miami, where she still seemed far from the shape shown previous year between Wimbledon and the US Open, also due to two physical problems which forced her to left the scene too soon. "Some ways I feel similar to maybe the Australian Open in '17", the 2009 French Open victor said.

"But I did everything I could to stay fit".

"It's not about today or tomorrow. Obviously the Slams, etc, just getting ready for those events".

World number one Osaka has not been overly struggling since surprisingly splitting with coach Sascha Bajin in the wake of her Australian Open title. Federer's only French Open title came in 2009 and his preparations have been disrupted by defeat to Thiem in Madrid and his withdrawal from his Rome quarter-final against Tsitsipas.

"If you're talking about longer goals, of course I haven't won Wimbledon yet and it would be really cool to win everything in one year".

"I just had that doubt, like if I did (play on in Rome) I couldn't".

Je venais juste d'avoir 18 ans. "Le fait qu'il ait utilisé cette histoire pour vendre son livre m'a beaucoup dérangée". But I've been receiving anonymous threats of violence from her fans, and it's affecting my business and my health.

"I wanted to make sure I was 100 percent going to be able to play the French Open".

On Friday she lost in the final qualifying round at the French Open after winning her opening two matches in Paris.

Osaka will start her campaign against Slovakian Anna Karolina Schmiedlova before a potentially explosive second round clash against two-time grand slam champion Victoria Azarenka or 2017 French Open victor Jelena Ostapenko.

On her Wimbledon debut past year she memorably beat world number 36 Irina-Camelia Begu to reach the second round where she lost to another Romanian, Mihaela Buzarnescu. Clay is her best surface and she looks ready to win a major.

The women's game remains far more open than the men's, with a host of other players holding serious hopes of coming out on top, like Italian Open champion and second seed Pliskova and the in-form Petra Kvitova.

Anything can happen in the French capital, as shown by unheralded Latvian Jelena Ostapenko's shock victory only two years ago.
