Williams looking dangerous ahead of Roland Garros

Serena Williams has struggled with injuries, in recent years, and recently had to pull out of the Italian Open, but the big-hitting American insists that she will be 100 per cent fit for the French Open, a development that could be a blow to her rivals.

The American has endured a torrid recent few years, due to a succession of injuries, but there is no doubting her talent, with 13 Grand Slam singles titles to her name.

Williams has looked back to her ominous best, in recent months, but she had to withdraw ahead of her semi-final with Li Na at the Italian Open as a precautionary measure, due to a back injury.

Going into the French Open, she has a clay court winning streak of 17 matches. She won clay court titles in Charleston and Madrid, in the past month. Williams is currently the favourite to win the Roland Garros, as fans who enjoy betting with will no doubt be aware. 

She will be a dangerous opponent for all her rivals in the French Open, as Williams looks to add to her solitary win in the Grand Slam - which came all the way back in 2002 – but she insists she will be raring to go come Roland Garros.

“On Friday morning, I felt a bit of pain in my lower back and, if it's not 100 per cent, its better not to play and make it worse", Williams said.

"But I am in good form, I have a few days to get better and I am confident I will be 100 per cent fit for the French Open."

Elsewhere, Maria Sharapova could fancy her chances of winning the 2012 French Open, after her success in Italy.

She beat defending French Open champion, Na, in the final, and she seems to be coming into the competition in real form. However, she does not boast the best record at the Roland Garros, with only two semi-finals in nine attempts.
