World No. 11 Stanislas Wawrinka is questionable for Roland Garros after suffering a small tear in his right thigh in Rome. Le Matin reports Wawrinka hasn't touched his racquet since he conceded a walkover to Alexandr Dolgopolov in Rome. The Madrid runner-up is hopeful that he can compete in Paris. Roland Garros starts on Sunday.

"My situation is not easy to live with,” Wawrinka said. “I am preoccupied with therapy. I have not done anything else since I got injured. I’ll know more precisely where I am (Wednesday) when I see my doctor and get some tests. [But] the injury is getting better. Two days of training [prior to the French] would be sufficient."
