World No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska, who pulled out Brussels last week with right shoulder pain that has plagued her for much of the past two years, says that the injury hasn’t healed, but believes she can play through the pain at Roland Garros.

“It's up and down, but definitely it's a little bit worse on clay,” she told reporters after her win over Shahar Peer. “So it was good for a couple months. But then now it was inflammation again. On the clay it's always a little bit worse. I think you're pushing a little bit more than usual. It was much worse after Rome. So I decide to have a week of rest and just practice and with rehab and go to Roland Garros. I think it was a good move. I think I'm used to the pain. I'm ready to go.”
