It would be smart to take a short break now regardless of injury. He needs to be fresh for the grass and I imagine he will go straight to American hardcourt tournaments after that. 2 lead ups to Roland Garros is sufficient.
Where he can practise on grass? At Bahamas, or what? Either in London or in Australia, if it appeared there would be at one with the club, it's someone would have noticed and we knowed about it. On expense of clay, he never played a lot on clay, 2-3 tournament before Roland Garros, probably he was denied a wild card in Madrid and Rome. Therefore, in Nice will a trial of strength before Roland Garros.
Heavy rain prevented any play on the tournament's opening day on Saturday and the pair will not play until at least Monday, with more rain forecast. Hewitt made the most of the delay as he visited the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday night.
