Australian John Peers believes he is hitting the ball as well as ever ahead of his French Open campaign, which gets underway later today.
Peers and partner Henri Kontinen head into the year’s second Grand Slam full of confidence after an impressive run on the clay over the past two months.
In that time they’ve beaten the world number one pair and tasted success at the Munich Open earlier this month.
“Our win in Germany was a nice reward for a solid clay court season and we think we have as good a chance as anyone,” Peers said.
“If we play our best tennis there’s no reason we can’t do well in Paris.”
Since forming together at the start of the year the Peers / Kontinen duo have won two titles on the ATP Tour and head to Roland Garros at the tournament’s number 11 seeds.
“It is great to be back at Roland Garros,” Peers said.
“Paris is a great city to be in and it’s exciting heading in to the second Grand Slam of the year.”
Peers has made the 3rd round at the past two French Open’s, while Kontinen made it to the semi-finals of the mixed doubles last year.
The pair takes on Guillermo Garcia-Lopez and Nicolas Almagro in the first round in the 4th match on Court 8.
