French Open tournament director Amelie Mauresmo admits to being concerned on whether Nadal will be able to make the event. She said: “I followed what Rafa experienced in Rom and he knows himself better than anyone. It’s an injury that he’s been living with for years.
“So, of course, there’s a concern for him first because we know how important coming to Roland-Garros is to him and it’s probably shaped all of that, all of his legend, in a way. So we’re following it… I would say carefully, but there’s nothing we can do. We’re just obviously all crossing our fingers to get the best players in the draw.
“Then, what would it mean if he were to eventually not play in the tournament? Obviously, he would be a miss.”
