Sam Stosur has resumed training after withdrawing from the WTA Family Circle Cup in Charleston with a calf injury.
In good news ahead of Roland Garros, Stosur’s management confirmed that the world No.9 was currently training and planned to contest Australia’s Fed Cup tie against Switzerland on 20-21 April, before following her pre-existing tournament schedule in the lead-up to the French Open.
The Australian returned to action in Charleston last week, her calf heavily strapped after three weeks out of the game.
After enjoying a first-round bye, Stosur won her second-round match thanks to a convincing display against Marina Erakovic.
Yet her movement was clearly hampered in the third round against Canadian Eugenie Bouchard, forcing her to retire from that match when trailing 6-1 2-0.
Stosur originally injured her calf during her fourth round win at Indian Wells in March, prompting her withdrawal from the tournament and causing her to pull out of the Sony Open in Miami.
