Stanislas Wawrinka limped into the French Open nursing a thigh injury. The Swiss who made the Madrid final injured his thigh and was questionaable to play Paris. But he says the injury is improving and he feels no pain, for now.
“I’m still continuing to have treatment for that thigh, but I look after it,” he said yesterday after a win over De Bakker. “I will tell you, if you like, tomorrow how it stands, but it looks okay. When I felt no pain for my thigh, that was great.”
Wawrinka, who’s never been to the quarterfinals at the French Open, could face Rafael Nadal next week in the quarterfinals.
“For my preparation wise, I’m happy and relieved that I saw no pain for my thigh, which means I can put this behind me now while retaining obviously top of mind that I was wounded in the past,” he said. “But I don’t think we need to think about this right now. No excuses to be had. I can devote myself entirely to the tournament and the up and coming match.”
Wawrinka will play the Zeballos-Pospisil winner on the Thursday in the second round.
