The 27-year-old Czech required surgery to her left, playing, hand after being stabbed by an intruder at her home last December, but has made a faster-than-expected recovery.

“I am flying to Roland Garros today and taking part in a press conference on site at 2.30 p.m. local time on Friday,” she wrote on Instagram. “Keep everything crossed for me that I will be able to play there.”

Kvitova already confirmed on Tuesday that she is set to play at Wimbledon in July.
