The Argentinian last played 10 days ago at the Rome Masters, where he pulled out of his quarter-final against David Goffin while trailing the Belgian 6-2, 4-5.

"I'm probably going to play on Tuesday, I have a day and a half left (to be ready), I'm going to see day-to-day," said the world number six.

"I'm making this effort because it's Roland Garros."

The 29-year-old former US Open champion is due to play Frenchman Nicolas Mahut in the first round and is seeded fifth for the tournament which gets underway on Sunday.
