Simona Halep, the World number four says she has only a “50-50” chance of being fit for next week’s French Open. Last week, she got knee injury in Rome, during the Italian Open final.
The 2014 French Open finalist said, “Arriving early in Paris for treatment. The MRI scan shows a torn ligament from the fall in Roma.” The 25-year-old says, “I’m keeping my fingers crossed,” said Halep, the beaten finalist at Roland Garros in 2014. “Doctors say it’s 50-50 at the moment but it’s made good improvement since Sunday.”
She added, “We are remaining very positive.” Tara Moore, the British number four will not be in Paris after losing 6-2 7-5 in qualifying to Taiwan’s Kai-Chen Chang. With Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova all absent, Halep would be one of the favourites to claim what would be a maiden grand slam crown at the May 28-June 11 tournament.
