The second Grand Slam of the year, the French Open, is two weeks away with just Italian Open, in Rome, the big-ticket tournament remaining in preparation. As Rome gets underway on 8 May, many of the title contenders for the major in Paris are struggling with injuries.

Top of the pile is 14-time French Open winner Rafael Nadal who is working his way back from a muscle problem in Brisbane in January, when he had spent nearly a year out with a hip issue last year . Since January, Nadal has played two tournaments – in Barcelona and Madrid – winning four matches. The Spaniard presented a good case of his match-fitness in the run to the last-16 at Caja Magica. But before the tournament got underway, Nadal made his intentions for Roland Garros quite clear.
