Andy Murray with his back pain is not the only player with a fitness decision to make before the weekend start of the French Open.
Swiss Stanislas Wawrinka has revealed that he suffered a small tear in his right thigh in Rome last week and will have to decided within a few days about his own participation at Roland Garros.
"There is a risk that I will not be able to play Roland Garros," the world No. 11 told Swiss media during a sponsor appearance at home. "The situation is not easy to live with. I can't enjoy all the good things that happened to me, " said the winner of a clay title this month in Portugal and a finalist in Madrid against Rafael Nadal.
Wawrinka battled last week in Rome for more than two hours in his opening match, then withdrew with his injury before facing Alexandr Dolgopolov in the second round.
"I've not touched a racket since returning from Rome. I have to decide something by Thursday. My mind is at the moment busy with recovery. I've not been doing anything else. I'll know more when the results of more medical tests are returned."
While Wawrinka hinted that the tear could require up to several weeks of recovery, he was trying to maintain a positive attitude. "I'm hoping things turn out ok, I hope to get to Paris. Two days of training would be enough for me to play."
