Rafael Nadal is not certain of his presence at the Roland Garros and his words have alarmed all his fans, considering that there is now less than a month left until the start of the Parisian Slam.

It will depend on the physical condition in which the Spanish champion will arrive at his second Slam of the season, as Nadal himself explained in the press conference after the defeat against Jiri Lehecka at the Mutua Madrid Open.

"I will fight and do everything to try to play at the Roland Garros. If I arrived in France in the condition I am in today, I would not play. This is the reality. I will go and play there if I feel able to go out and play well.

The world doesn't end with the Roland Garros, even though it was the most important tournament of my career. I'm not playing badly but I have some physical limitations. The body no longer feels the same game as before. This doesn't allow me to compete as I would like," said Rafa.
