Defending Roland Garros champion Juan Carlos Ferrero faces a tough first-round opponent in Tommy Haas, but reaching the opening round may be even tougher. The fourth-ranked Spaniard is suffering from wrist and rib injuries that could hamper his hopes of defending his Roland Garros championship.
The season’s second Grand Slam begins on Monday and Ferrero’s injuries prevented him from practicing on Tuesday and Wednesday though he did participate in a light practice yesterday.
The injuries are the latest setback for the former No. 1, who contracted the chicken pox at Indian Wells in March and sat out the entire month. Ferrero has been limited to just five ATP Tour clay-court matches this year and has not played since suffering a 6-2, 6-3 setback to compatriot Alex Corretja in the opening round of the Tennis Masters Series-Monte Carlo last month.
Ferrero’s coach, Antonio Martinez Cascales, said he was “optimistic” Ferrero will play Roland Garros though his injuries — and lack of recent match play — is clearly a concern.
