Rafael Nadal will be very dangerous at Roland Garros under one caveat believes former two-time Roland Garros finalist, Alex Corretja sharing thoughts on his compatriot and his run-in before potentially his last French Open.
In the belief of Corretja, he sees Nadal having a chance if he can play two or three matches in Rome in order to get himself up to speed for Paris. He has played a few weeks in a row having tipped up at Barcelona and Madrid gaining some confidence boosting wins in the latter. He was only stopped by the heroics of Jiri Lehecka.
But this was potentially the perfect outcome as it gives him the chance to have a few days recouping and practicing more for Rome and Roland Garros after a stop start return to the start since the start of January. He did say though that if he wasn't 100%, he wouldn't play Roland Garros so it could yet be in vein.
"If Nadal manages to play two or three more games in Rome, he will be very dangerous in Paris. Nobody wants to play against Nadal in a best of five sets. The draw will also be important. But first we will have to see how he will behave in Rome.
"Rome will be fundamental to see how he feels physically. Rafa is progressing at breakneck speed. He is ready to achieve great things, which is really impressive after everything he's been through."
